Where Is Inspiration?

“Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso


You want something to believe in. You want to believe in yourself. You also want to be inspired, to go on to do daring things, take part in experiences that broaden your perspective and expand your horizons. But where is inspiration? Where can you go to find it or discover it within?

These questions are valid, and the answers are necessary to jumpstart momentum and make you feel good about your prospects. So, where is inspiration? Is it in nature, the melody of a song, the written word, the touch of a loved one, the laughter of a small child, the aroma and taste of food? In truth, inspiration can be found in almost anything. What you look at one day may change the next day by allowing you to see and experience something new.

When you are truly present in life, you notice things.

And it’s necessary to be fully present to see what may be right in front of you.

Reactions, for example, and movement, as well as change. If you remain stuck in thoughts of the past or worried about the future or so absorbed in your own troubles that you can’t think about anything else, inspiration will be hard to find.

On the other hand, when you think of possibilities, dream of doing something you’ve never done before or imagine various scenarios your life may involve, that’s inspiration at work.

Cultivate the art of dreaming.

Indeed, allow yourself to dream.

Flex your imagination muscle, for every person has one and it’s there for a good purpose. Humans have the unique ability to dream of things that aren’t yet reality, to construct a reality within their thoughts and design plans to bring those imaginary goals to fruition.

If you prize imagination, give inspiration room to grow, you can flesh out dreamscapes and make them real.

Everything is possible with imagination and inspiration – and, of course, the willingness to work hard and persevere despite all obstacles you encounter along the way.

But that’s not all there is to it. Through my blog and Daily Thoughts, I’ll help you navigate life’s curves and find the path to achieving the success you desire.

Are you looking for direction in your life? Maybe you feel like your personal growth has hit a standstill? You aren’t alone.

One of my favorite activities is writing the Daily Thoughts. These all begin with positive inspirational quotes from people both famous and little-known. I then provide my perspective on the topic so that you can glean tidbits that resonate with you.

I like to make you smile. But, just like my goal with my daily blog, in Daily Thoughts I’ll also challenge you to engage in positive thinking, to push past preconceived notions of what you can do and what you’re afraid is beyond your ability.
