How I Inspire Myself

I think the word Inspire can mean many different things to all kinds of people.  It’s something that can fuel so much in your life.  The people you meet, the stories you hear, the places you visit.  Even that inspirational feeling can be manifested from your own mind.  For me, inspiration can come from any experience I have. Believing in yourself is difficult, but I feel it’s something that has given me the drive to push myself forward.

Even this post was inspired by a recent achievement in my life.  Two days ago I was awarded a B.Sc. Environmental Science, and being only 21, having done a 4 year course in something I am so passionate about was a very overwhelming feeling.  I pushed myself so hard, but at the same time I had a lot of patience in myself during that time.  When I was 17, just starting university, I definitely didn’t have much of an insight into what this venture would actually mean to me. Who does at 17 right? Nevertheless, the amount I have learned about myself, life, and other people amazes me.  It makes me excited for the future.  However, reminding me to cherish the present. During school all I wanted was to be out of school, when I started University all I wanted was to be finished my degree, and here I am.  Unemployed and wishing I had a job. The grass isn’t greener on the other side.  It’s a huge lesson i’m only just coming to terms with.  Don’t wish your life away.  Right now, this is when you are living.  Life takes us on many journeys, down different paths, and it all shapes who we are as people.

It is so important to inspire yourself.  Find what your passion is, be it many different things such as myself, or one thing that is special to you, and enjoy it with all your heart. Be patient with yourself to find what you love, and go for it. Inspire yourself, discover what you enjoy, and push yourself to do it. Try to not be scared of the next chapter in life. It is okay to fail, something I have really struggled with, but through these failures we can learn so much.  Embrace your mistakes.  Cherish your insecurities.  Live in the power of now.  Spread positivity, and love with every part of your being.

If you are finding it difficult, looking to others can really help with inspiration.  There are so many people in this world, and I think that everyone comes across someone who really makes an impact.  However small it may be.  Take this and apply it to your own life.  It doesn’t have to be something grand or amazing or huge, as long as it makes you happy and you feel proud of yourself, it’s worth it.

I know this post contains a lot of rambling, and may not excite those who read it, but I feel this needed to be here. For myself, and also for anyone who needs inspiration. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this,

Love and Light always,

Namaste,
