It never ceases to amaze me how much there is in the world that is inspirational. Whoever said "S**t Happens" must have had their eyes perpetually closed because there is no end to the abundance of inspiration and love in the world; they’re everywhere you look.
Just a few hours ago, there was suddenly a vibrant double ring on our doorbell. When I got to the door (reluctantly, I admit, since I was engaged in work and didn’t particularly wish to be disturbed), the visitors were nowhere to be found, but in their place on the porch was a marvelous and grand bouquet of stunning sun flowers together with a card to me and Chad telling us how wonderful and beautiful and amazing we are!
My joy was unmatched in that moment!
To be sure, we have the best, most loving (and beautiful!) friends in the world (Thank you, Andrea and Phil!). Now, that’s inspirational!
Just now I came across a sheet of paper on which I had written several other thoughts on what it takes to be in a consistently inspired state…..or, to get into one in the first place, if we’re feeling decidedly uninspired.
They each state a different truth, but they are related. Taken together, they are very powerful messages and very inspirational. Don’t you think so? Do they inspire you?

What can you begin right now that will leave you energized and inspired? Don’t wait to see the whole staircase. Get moving!
Isn’t life beautiful? Isn’t life Inspirational?!!
