WE’RE on day two already (imagine!) and today’s prompt is all about inspiration.
What inspires us to get out bed in the morning? What makes us excited for the day? What makes us happy to ride around the subway to get where we’re going?
It would sound corny to say I am inspired by life. So I suppose it would be better to say I am inspired by my own life – by my family, my love for music and books, and of course, pouring my heart out on this blog.
I am admittedly a romantic at heart. I wish for days where I can go around on subway for no reason at all, days spent under the covers with nowhere to go, and days where it’s ok for me to take a moment to just breathe.
I’m not an anxious person, but I do tend to become wrapped up in my anxieties, to become stressed and worried, and left wringing my hands instead of taking the plunge. This is a new thing for me.
My mother always used to tell me I “worked on a different plane”. From anyone else that would have been an insult; from my mother, however, I understand what she’s trying to say. As a twenty-year-old I’m not yet finished, I’m still cooking in the oven so to speak, and I am still trying to find the little girl who used to climb trees without thinking about how she was going to climb back down.
The 30-day Gratitude Challenge for me is about thinking about the everyday little things that inspire me. And remembering to be thankful for it.
Maybe I’ll find more little pieces of me along the way.
