I search for inspiration. I read books that inspire me, I attend retreats and workshops that inspire me and I connect with people that inspire me. I search it out all the time, because it’s important to me to grow and connect with others. But other times, inspiration finds me when I’m busy with daily life. In these moments, it’s often just a whisper to pay attention. It’s very easy to ignore it and move on. However, if you do pay attention, you may just find a gift of insight, a gift of support, a gift of gratitude or simply a gift of inspiration to be a better version of yourself.
If you follow me on FaceBook, you may have seen a post about this….
While cooking dinner, a wet bowl left this on my cutting board and I instantly saw the Tree of Life. I almost just wiped it up, but on second thought I grabbed my phone, took a picture and sent it to a couple friends that I thought would appreciate it. One replied, “Make that go viral!”. I laughed at the response, because going “viral” has never been an aspiration of mine, but I did decide to share it on FaceBook, thinking others might get a kick out of it. The response to the post has been great. And, I’m happy to report, I’m not delusional, others see the tree as well!
Every time the post received a new like, I was reminded that we all need to be inspired by the little miracles in life. We are surrounded by them, if we just pay attention. Personally, I know that when I take a moment to be grateful for all of the small gifts the world gives me, when I stop griping about inconsequential irritations, when I acknowledge that life is a miracle; then, I am inspired to grow and develop into the best possible version of myself.
I hope the Tree of Life inspires you, with it’s strong roots, potential for unlimited growth and it’s sacred wisdom. A reminder that we are all unlimited, we are all connected and we are all miracles.
