SOAPBOX® mini-motivation: inspiration defined

Today’s little treat is a continuation of last week… a project called MotivationStation USA, being started by my pal Kevin McCrudden… the man who pushed to have January 2 established as National Motivation & Inspiration Day! So here is another little ditty I created for him…FOR YOU!

INSPIRATION.   Ok, now this digs a bit deeper into the soul than simple motivation.  The elation of one’s heart often comes through witnessing incredible hardship, hearing stories of lifesaving, and learning of human beings achieving absolutely awesome feats.  If you’re looking for inspiration…it’s a bit like LOVE.  It finds you…and threads its way into your very being.  Feeling a bit uninspired?  The solution is all about perspective, friends.  Be open to the possibility of it every day  -in any person, event, thing, experience.  Believe that around any corner is tiny nugget that’s just waiting to be discovered by you.  Ironically, in the end, when INSPIRATION lights up your own life, the sparkling glow is confettiied into the world, allowing you to then be the fuel for others.     ~ KD Support Kevin’s efforts at TheMotivationStation

SOAPBOX of the week: Educate to imaginate

“Study as if you were going to live forever; live as if you were going to die tomorrow.”     – Maria Mitchell, American astronomer
Now that doesn’t mean bury yourself in a library and moonlight as a bank robber or cliff diver!  It means learn to love to learn…again.  Don’t be afraid to ask or try.  Are you curious about the who, what, when, where and why of all the stuff that impacts your current reality?  What about the people, places and things that have touched your life already?  Well, I say, ante up and stuff your brain with all  the fresh info, images, trivia and statistics you can get your hands on!  Decidedly fuel your imagination by tapping the fabulous resources right at your fingertips and see what evolves.  Folks, you’re enrolled in the school of life for the long-haul.  Learn more to live more and you’ll be glad you showed up.
