Inspiration...

I am out in my front yard this morning walking my old man dog around to do his business, he's been going through some rough days, and it's usually a sombering experience for me...but then I turned to the right and saw this amazing sight of  the sun rising over the water.  Breathtaking, right?

 

Suddenly my heart seemed a little lighter and I felt energized! I wanted to do good, I wanted to do good work...I was inspired.

 

Sometimes as human beings we get so bogged down in the daily muck that can sometimes become our lives, hopefully only short-term, that we just keep trudging through it step by step aiming for the other side.  That is survival, not living.

 

We need to find what gives us that energized, yet calm and peaceful, feeling...we need to find what inspires us...and we need to purposefully build that into our lives...so that we are living, not merely surviving...so that we sre inspired to do good, good work, good deeds, and so perhaps we can inspire others as well along the way.  

 

I challenge you today to seek out that which inspires you...it could be nature, it could be childeren, it could be the elderly, it could be the arts, etc...and fill your cup of it, then allow it to runneth over into your day...and rain a little on those around you as well!🌞

Hi Christine- what a wonderful inspirational post. You're absolutely right. So often we walk through life wrapped up in the doldrums of our daily lives. Glad you found your inspiration.

Hello Christine,  morning walks can be inspiring if you take the time to walk to a park plus amazing meeting other people in the morning.

Hi Will!  Thanks for the comment, walking to a park for me would be a bit of a stretch as I am in a pretty rural area, so I walk around our 20 acres and just breathe...most of my human interaction here is done on Fridays when we hit up our favorite burger bar for dinner and maybe a craft beer at the local brewery, grocery store & post office runs, etc...but yes - your idea is great!

Nice post to start the morning as I look outside and we are having an ice storm. No walk for me but there's inspiration all around us.

I hear you Mimi! According to our weather station on our property here in Montana, it is 1.6 degrees outside and feels like -13.6...I think I'll be getting my inspiration this am from a nice hot cup of coffee! ☕️

This is very inspirational and so true. We need to be mindful of all that is going on and find those things that make us say, "Ahhhhh."

Agreed Kat, thank you! My water is frozen yesterday and today...hopefully will thaw tomorrow. We are prepared, but it's still not tons of fun. I hope you are nice and toasty in your new home! I cannot wait to start building a house later this year.🌞

Good morning Christine. I think you are right. There is beauty everywhere and if we look we can embrace it. On another note, please use a bigger font.

Thank you Sheila...I always use size 12 font, what font do you use? I thought it looked normal but I will go double check it.
