What exactly is Inspiration? I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently.
The dictionary always refers to the verb ‘inspire’ which then refers to a collection of words such as:
Fulfill, influence, arouse, affect, animate or even impel!
I mean come on… that doesn’t help at all!
I work in a company with a tagline ‘Inspiring people’, have a computer program called ‘Inspire’ and well it seems to be following me around recently. You know like something that plagues on your mind, I just seem to be seeing the word everywhere. I have been reading and following many of your blogs/ posts and seeing images that could be classed as ‘inspirational’. But for the life of me I don’t feel that I feel inspired. I thought that understanding the word would help, but it confuses me more.
So what gives me inspiration, what actually inspires me?
Thinking about that – It’s easy…
- My wife, our family & friends,
- Our experiences together,
- Our travels,
- The escapism presented by the cinema,
- Our dreams and aspirations,
- Bettering oneself (fitness and challenge)
And I’ve suddenly realised that writing also inspires me, I suppose that’s why I enjoy blogging so much.
Writing this post, I have suddenly started to feel better, I mean it’s clarified my thoughts, it’s shown me that I have a lot of inspiration in my life, and although certain things are not inspiring… I am overall inspired.
Hows your inspiration today?
