I do love it when someone or something inspires me. I see a building, or listen to a piece of music, or am drawn in by a story, or get lost in a photograph and I feel so full of life. It is as though a light flutter comes over me, I feel lighter and more awake. I feel productive and ready to create something. This is what inspiration feels like for me.
It’s true, inspiration is da bomb. However, sometimes, I have to show up and do the work before inspiration slips in like the life of the party. Doing the work means: all the planning, the preparing, the commitment to my weekly goals, going to WW meetings, taking time to be mindful, and finding activity that I enjoy doing.
So, if you’re not feeling it yet (I get it) don’t be discouraged. It takes time to change your lifestyle. Inspiration will catch up to you; so, keep at this. Ok? I will too because I find the more I put into this process the more inspired I become.
