These moments of powerful inspiration sometimes endure or are short lived. Each time we want to recreate that feeling we struggle to remember it exactly as it happened because it was an external source of inspiration. We are relying on others to inspire ourselves rather than inspiring ourselves. Self-inspiration is a wonderful gift we can choose to give ourselves at any time. All we need is a mirror, willingness and a belief in our right to be inspired by all that we are.
When I look in the mirror, I see love, compassion, hope, faith, loyalty, friendship, capacity, intelligence, kindness, humor and much more. I tell myself every morning that I love myself and that I am going to have a “great” day. I start each day with some self-talk about the kind of day I wish to create for myself as it is a gift and I don’t want to waste it with external sources of inspiration. I want to inspire me because if I do, you will add to what I have already given me and I will not have to rely on you for my inspiration.
My prayer for you today is that you choose to find your favorite mirror and inspire yourself to achieve the greatness that I know you are capable of.
Hugs and blessings for a joyous day!
