My life is full of fascinating people, places, and things.

Each day, something new, inspiring, or interesting happens to me. No day, no moment in time is actually like any other, even if they sometimes seem that way. Because of this truth, I am inspired by the world around me.

If I ever feel bored, or like nothing changes, I remind myself to pay closer attention. Everything is always in flux, whether that’s grass growing, a different meal to prepare tonight than I had last night, a change in the rhythm of my breathing in response to an emotion, or an impulse to tap into my spirituality and spiritual practices. When I notice the changes – unexpected and expected – my life takes on additional color and dimension.

I take particular note of the things that inspire me.

I may take a snapshot, journal about them, or simply etch them into my memory. With these experiences, I fill my inner well with new and intriguing, comfortable, and familiar images. This way, I never run dry.

The world around me feeds my creativity and leaves me lush with ideas.

My desire to live vibrantly is rekindled each day as I look for authentic ways to approach challenges that resonate with my heart and my spirit. I revel in the abundance of ideas presented to me and try to incorporate them into my life whenever I feel they might benefit me, which is often!

Today, I make time to contemplate the inspiration – physical, mental, and spiritual – that surrounds me. I am thankful for my many opportunities to learn and grow through experiencing the world. I continue to grow as I frequently seek out new ideas and experiences to help keep me inspired and motivated.
