Tapping Into Your Inspiration

Inspiration comes from the depths of your souls, in and out of your body like a lightning bolt, generating from the ground, up through your toes, sending electrical currents throughout your body, and finally making an exit through your fingers on the keyboard.

Inspiration is all around us. It is in our family, friends, and acquaintances. It is in the fluttering of bird wings, the message of the wind, and the aroma of fresh brewed coffee on a cool winter morning. You can feel it when your fingers form the words, and hear it in strokes you gently type.

My next tip for you, dear friend, is to tune into your surroundings. Become sensitive to that which once seemed only trivial. Take a moment to bird watch in your own back yard. Watch, listen, and learn from your surroundings, never ignoring the details.

As you become more intensely aware of everything that harmonizes your world, you will soon be overcome by the stories you must tell. For there is a world filled with life, energy, and greetings pleading with you to reveal the secrets you’ve discovered. Live my dear friend, live to love, and always be open to new learning possibilities.
