Words To Live By

Purple Flowers

"Seek out what will inspire you. A life without inspiration is a half-life only."
~Stephanie Dowrick

There are times in our lives when we all need inspiration.  We cannot live constantly in a state of euphoric motivation.  Our appreciation and enthusiasm for the little things sometimes gets forgotten.

Purple Flowers

It is times like these that we must seek out the things that inspire us.  Know what captures your heart, focus in on the things that set you on fire, let your inspiration be fueled by who you really are.

Purple Flowers

Sometimes moments of inspiration come when we least expect them, and then sometimes we must find them.  Embrace these moments, don't question them, just let yourself get caught up in the energy and see where it takes you.

Trying to control every element of our existence means that we may miss some moments of astounding beauty.  Moments of complete abandon may lead us to places you never dreamed of, in ways we never imagined.

Purple Flowers

It is in these moments that great things happen, that great change takes place, the enormous growth occurs. Follow your heart, and when you're not sure where you heart will lead you, then follow your inspiration.
