Where do you find inspiration? Do you find it in the trees? Is it in the words you hear? Is it in the people you meet? Is it a child’s laugh?
Lately I feel like I have been on a quest, more than normal, to find inspiration. I have this feeling that I should be doing great things with my life, but I just don’t know what yet. [Let me be clear here. I do think that I have a full happy life. I have a wonderful family and children, but I have always thought I am supposed to do something and I haven’t quite found it yet. In truth I have always been a seeker and probably always will be.]
I haven’t written in a while and since I’m sick in bed, I thought this is the perfect opportunity to write. I want to share some of the places I have been finding inspiration.
1.) The Rich Roll Podcast– If you have never heard of this you should tune in. It is free on iTunes and will always be free. Rich interviews all sorts of people on a weekly basis. He wants people to find and unleash their true authentic selves and he brings guests on to inspire you to do that.
2.) Ted Talks– I have a side business and I am in education. There are tons of talks about both subjects and how to lead. These are short videos that you can watch online or on YouTube.
4.) I’m that Girl is a non-profit organization that is a community, a support system, and a movement inspiring girls to Love, Express, and Be who they are.
5.) Melinda Alexander-MuMu Mansion– This is a fellow Stella & Dot stylist that I have never met, but is so inspiring to me. She writes amazing things on her FB page that inspires women to love who they are no matter what they look like, embrace what God gave them, and find their style.
6.) Steve Jobs– I just watched the movie on Netflix about Jobs last night. I have never really given him a thought before, but I like technology and I like Apple so I decided to watch the movie. Let me tell you, the guy was a jerk, but sooooo inspiring in how he viewed business. It wasn’t about the product. It was about the people for him. Apple always markets the why and not the what. I never thought of it before last night but it is true.
There are probably a dozen other things that I could say inspire me because the list is growing bigger every day, but this is a good start. For those of you that need a pick me up or need some inspiration yourself, check these out.
