Feeling inspired by your journey is incredibly important. When I look back at my past, I can definitely point out the parts where I was lacking in the inspiration department. I was more focused on just getting through the day, the year or even just the moment.
It took awhile but I have learned how to bring inspiration into my life on a regular basis. This practice has become a precious gift that has brought me much happiness.
If I want to feel inspired, I have to be open and willing as an active participant. I have to trust in the unknown when I truly don't have a clue as to the outcome. I continually have to put myself out there and try new things I never thought I'd have the courage to do.
We recently took our daughters to one of our local lakes. It was such a beautiful day and really the perfect place to be inspired.
I have always wanted to try my hand at paddle boarding and this was my chance. We ended up renting a board as well as a kayak and what a time we had! Now I'm not going to lie, lol, my legs still feel like rubber and it hurts a bit to crouch down, however I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I came home that afternoon filled to the brim with inspiration, wonderful energy that would leak into the days to come.
Anyone can be inspired in a brief and passing moment however it's something totally different when it happens so often that you don't remember being without. I can't go to the lake everyday but I can create experiences that will bring me the same inner glow. The more I say yes to life, the more this happens.
May your days be filled with energy that inspires you and shows you all that you can be.
