What To Do With The Unpleasant Condition of Being Utterly Uninspired.
I need to admit that for some time around the beginning of the year and later in March I felt utterly uninspired. That of course was a joke or a test. My mantra is to live an inspired and empowered life. That’s important for me, this is how I want to feel. And here I’m in the dry desert and not even a drop of inspiration around. When I realized that this is exactly what’s missing I naturally started looking for it.
But inspiration doesn’t grow on orange trees. I know, because it’s now past the harvest season.
And what inspiration am I talking about? It is not the kind of inspiration we hope we had, to make art, paint the porch, or write a chapter, while we are sitting on the patio on an idle, Sunday, summer afternoon, and we barely have the energy to chase the flies away from the mojito.
The inspiration I crave, is the kind that makes me look at everything with “new” eyes. Because only then I can really see things. Only then I allow them to amaze me.
I realized this past week or two, that to feel inspired – or anything, anything you want to feel- it is simply enough to DECIDE: I want to feel inspired.
I decided to pay attention to anything that may inspire me. But most importantly to simply BE the way I want to be.
If that won’t do it, there is more!
Long time ago -spring 2013- I wrote about my daily equilibrium practice. This is simply a page in my moleskine journal… (enough that brand name dropping already!) with the things I just looove doing or being- things that have the power to create balance in my life on all levels.
A simple and effective balance cheat sheet.
So this time in my search of inspiration I thought that maybe I drifted too far away from the practice. Indeed, as soon as I connected with the night sky, renewed my inner work, started practicing yoga regularly along with safe spirituality, meditating, etc I felt more back on track. You may want to look into doing things that balance you too, and who knows what will happen next.
How do you find inspiration or how does it find you?
