Your Inspirational Moments

I find life inspires me.

I find life inspires me.

Do you ever have inspirational insights that seem to appear from nowhere? You know, those moments when you see life with incredible clarity? If so, then you know how important it is to make the most of them.

Sometimes they come to you like a bolt from the blue. At others, they are the product of much consideration. Either way, these inspirational events are truly “Aha!” instants, when you suddenly see with intensity what was previously concealed.

As for me, well I love inspirational moments. In fact, I live for them. They are like living intensified. The pleasure of grasping a new idea and the sudden simplicity that goes with it is a mental rush. Which explains why inspirational thinking is so appealing.

So it’s a shame I find most of my thinking time operates on much more mundane ideas. Like: where is the cat? Have I put away everything in the kitchen? Did I leave the iron on? And so on and so on (Hardly inspirational, is it?).

Then again, these are the daily things of life and therefore they have their place. Besides which, my well-spaced moments of inspirational delight seem all the more pleasing, given they are so incredibly rare.

What really matters, however, is not how often you shout “Eureka!” but that it’s able to happen in the first place. Imagination and the freedom to reason as you wish are vital aspects of inspirational thinking. And, fortunately, any one of us can do it.

So when you do have an “Aha!” moment, savor its obvious worth. Avoid doing what I used to do, which involved promptly forgetting all about it. Instead, write it down, draw it, and share it. Rather than hiding them to yourself, let people know what your inspirational ideas look like. Because these rare gems deserve our attention, and if we all bring them together, the possibilities could be wonderfully “dangerous” in the best sense. So, feel free to drop me a line and share your own moments of clarity. Beyond that point, the ultimate step is to take to the next tread and implement your brilliance.  Good luck!

You Are Such An Inspiration
