Today is about inspiration. Each day should really be inspiring in some way. What inspires you? What do you see in your world that ignites a fire within you? That which inspires you likely is connected to your purpose here on Earth.
Whatever that thing may be: a beautiful art piece, a soulful song, children playing, a perfectly baked pie or the architecture of a building. All of these can be that thing that inspires you.
The question then is, what do you do with that inspiration? If it excites you and you are drawn to whatever that thing is, then you shouldn’t waste it! Maybe you express it in something you do or make? Whatever that thing is, don’t waste another day not expressing that in your life!
It can be helpful to begin with gratitude when you are looking for inspiration. Gratitude for each day. Gratitude for another chance at this thing we call life. Just recognizing that the best gift you could get is that you get to be here today. In this day and in the days past, you have had the opportunity to live out your life. You have made the choices that have brought you here to where you are today. The great news is that you get another chance to make a choice that can direct your life in ways that inspire you most. You get to be better and do better!
Here is a quick exercise for you to find what inspires you.
Quick - what inspires you? What gets you excited? What would you do for free everyday if given the chance? Write it down.
Quick - what are you good at? What do people tell you are your talents? Write them down.
Quick - throw out failure or any constraints - What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want people to remember you? Write it down.
From this list, you should start seeing some things that really speak to your heart. You should see inspiration, excitement and likely your purpose in life. Those things you have written are your power base. They are powerful to you because they are in alignment with who you are and the reason you are here. Everyone has something special to give and when you express your gifts, you are not only inspiring yourself, you are inspiring others.
That’s how you find it. Inspiration. You owe it to yourself and to the rest of us to express your inspiration because we all feed on others excitement and energy when they are doing the things that feed their soul. Just imagine if everyone was following their calling and doing what inspires them? The positivity and happiness in the world would be buzzing with energy and inspiration!
So, if you take anything from this today, please just start. Start finding ways for you to be inspired. Find ways you can express what really lights you up!
