I am surrounded by inspiration, as are you… everywhere we look, everything we read, everything we view, everything we hear, provides fodder for becoming better people, for forming new truths, for letting ourselves shine.
So easy is it, in this ever changing world, to let the negativity thrown at us on a daily basis to taint our views, shrink our world, to allow the taste of fear cross our lips. Our choice remains in our hands as to what we will choose to embrace, what we will choose to “feed” with our energies.
To turn a life around, from thoughts of despair, requires major sprinklings of positivity and trust.
To allow the best of ourselves to blossom, requires effort and determination.
Feeling down? Have access to the Internet? Search out positive-thought quotes. Go grab a book filled with words of hope. Watch a movie that will make you laugh. There are times when we need to embrace our darkness, to sort out our lives, but to dwell too long in dark places makes us pale. Search out the sunshine, bask in its warming rays, allow strength to fill your being.
There is a plethora of inspirational authors from who to resonate with, they all essentially share the same story, they just speak in different languages…find the one you understand and lean on their words when in need, use their platform from which to dive into life. We have the choice, always, to follow our fear’s beckoning or to allow our choices to come from places of love. Choose wisely, use discernment and go out there and thrive…
“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”
~ John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
