Do More Than Just Exist

Why is inspiration important?

We're really big on inspiration here, as you probably can tell. Life can sometimes distract us from what matters most. As we're busy trying to get this and that done, complete this project, take care of this we forget what living beautifully and passionately really means.

Scott Barry Kaufman  said it best:

In a culture obsessed with measuring talent and ability, we often overlook the important role of inspiration. Inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations. Inspiration propels a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities. Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature. Its history of being treated as supernatural or divine hasn’t helped the situation. But as recent research shows, inspiration can be activated, captured, and manipulated, and it has a major effect on important life outcomes.

Inspiration pushes us to achieve our goals.
Inspiration is a springboard for creativity.
Inspiration reminds us that life is full of beauty.

What can we do with inspiration?

It isn't really helpful if you take the time to read a self-help book, meditate on it for a few hours...minutes...seconds... then tuck it away and keep pushing through life just like you've always had.

Sometimes we get numb and life loses its wonder. You know what we mean. It's all work, a list of things to do, and we're just living. Just breathing.

That's when need the reminder to do more than just exist.

Um, okay. What does that mean?

That means stepping out of your comfort zone. Taking risks, taking chances. Don't go through life on autopilot. Love. Dream. Seize the moment. Go out there and experience our beautiful world. Face your fears. Make time for those crazy things you've always wanted to do, but pushed away.

Luke 1:37 reminds us that "nothing is impossible with God." Read that again. Nothing. Nothing is impossible, not with God. Not a second chance. Not a new business. Not writing a book or becoming a singer. Not the restoration of your marriage or your spiritual life. Not healing from trauma or illness. Nothing.
 
There are 86400 seconds in a day.
Tick tock.
 
Go do something amazing.
