For me it was going to yoga this morning. I made myself because I needed it. After yesterday’s pottery carving session it was a way to relieve the tension built up in my shoulders. But it’s more than that. It re-balances this brain of mine. It sparks my much needed creativity. And it helps me connect with my spirituality thanks to our beautiful teacher.
There’s other things that inspire me as well of course. Like spending time with my best friends, going to the beach on a crisp clear winter day, any expanse of water, museums, travel. But what if you can’t physically get there? Maybe take a few minutes of quiet thought and go there in your mind. Allow yourself that simple gift. Different experiences give us a new perspective on life. And if we’re just going down the same path every day a new perspective might be exactly what we need. It’s important to try new things, seek out new experiences and go different places. Slowly but surely I’m taking my own advice. xo -dawn
