Staying Inspired Through the Midst of Life

As I was driving to work this morning I was thinking about how pumped up I am about my life and where life seems to be taking me these days. This was after a two day drag of feeling tired and worn out. After two days of that I had a thought that went a little something like this... where is your inspiration? Your whole life goal is to inspire others so why are you so uninspired? So flash forward to this mornings drive...  I couldn't help myself but to come up with a list of things to do each day to get inspired. This is what I came up with. I hope it helps you appreciate the small things and learn that each day will go according to your attitude.

1. Wake up early and read something that you enjoy before work.
2. Take pictures of everyday life things
3. Enjoy the sunrise
4. Make eye contact and smile at a stranger... dare you give them a compliment? I would say yes.
5. Find something funny and laugh at it (like a video or picture or story)
6. Write out your goals for the day
7. Make time to have a conversation with somebody who challenges you (in a good way)
8. Serve others
9. Sing LOUDLY in your car
10. Please for the love of your sanity, drink some coffee. Its a must.

Here's a bonus: EAT CUPCAKES. :)


  1. I love this post! A few weeks ago I was feeling "blah" about things, and stopped myself to take a moment and appreciate the small things. AND to curate my own happiness. Like going to Crave, just like you did! And I didn't even feel guilty for eating the Peanut Butter Chocolate cupcake :)
