To be inspired is to laugh so hard your body shakes.
To hug someone who has continuously given you their time and love.
To breathe a sigh of relief after a big test.
You know that feeling when you can feel something inside you building?
Courage, determination, strength or pure happiness?
And then you finally approach that person or run that extra mile and you just feel… good.
Not good- inspired.
Inspiration is driven from chalk being twirled and pressed into concrete.
From 26 letters of the alphabet creating a novel that erupts passion.
From that one person you couldn’t live without whose presence sends your mood to the moon.
It’s biting into a piece of pizza and closing your eyes because the combination is just right as it dances on your tongue.
It’s that wave of heat that encompasses you as you step from painfully frozen air into a heated building.
It’s the excitement of a stranger saying “Good Morning” or smiling at you just because they are swallowed in their own happiness.
Inspiration comes from new eyes searching the world around you.
From appreciating the moments that we so easily forget.
Taking our pants off.
Falling into a warm bed.
Stretching sore muscles.
It’s the way we look at ordinary days.
Because those ordinary days make up our lives.
That’s how we will create an inspired life- by living and breathing the beauty that goes into simply waking up in a comfortable home that was created by you.
Until Next Time,
