What is Inspiration?
Let’s face it, things just must get done, whether your working on a project at home, even exercising, cleaning the house such as cleaning the bathrooms, doing dishes, vacuuming etc. If you live in a house that has grass, you need to maintain it by mowing it, watering it, trimming bushes, pulling weeds, you know, all that fun stuff. Maybe it’s sitting down to figure out/pay bills, doing taxes, stuff like that. Or maybe you just really must go somewhere like school, a Doctor’s appointment, or that dreaded thing called a job.
All these things require you to get up and move. But we all tend to get tired, have no energy, or think too much about something that leads us to put those things off, procrastinate. Therefore, we lose focus, and our momentum gets drained too quick.
What gets us moving and keeps us moving? Perhaps that is the Million-dollar question. What gives we as people the power to do things when we are in a slump, feeling sluggish. It is that spiritual, growing, inherited feeling that we all must inhabit with ourselves. It’s called Inspiration. Inspiration is the form in which ignites our souls and enlightens our spirits to move forward.
So, what does that for you? What get’s you excited and motivated to move about your day?

For a lot of us it is caffeine that does the trick, generally in the form of coffee. I’d venture to guess this is the most common form of inspiration for a lot of us, because coffee is a beverage that you would normally use to wake yourself up even more after getting out of bed. There are chemicals in coffee that just scream inspiration for a lot of us.
Caffeine such as coffee opens our eyes and lifts our spirits for the day ahead, but there are many other forms of inspiration too.

For example, a lot of us need music to carry us through the day.

Music is also a huge form of Inspiration and motivation that stems from the tone of the music that is being played by the instruments, and if you really have an ear for music, you can also be inspired by the message that the song is delivering, and the words in which the musician is using to sing those songs.
Maybe your inspiration comes in the form of reading books such as the bible, or anything that encourages Positivity and Motivation; wink, wink.

Bottom line is that we all need Inspiration to keep us moving forward. Everybody is inspired by something. I’d like to know what inspires you the most to get through this thing called life?
