Finding Inspiration: A Journey of Rediscovery

Finding Inspiration

Have you ever struggled with finding inspiration? It could be something mundane like what to cook for dinner or what to wear for work or something more poignant like what to write about.

Maybe you have a blog post to write or are contemplating a book.

Inspiration can be elusive, especially when you’re juggling the demands of life and business.

I understand this process. Sometimes it feels like I’m procrastinating; other times I just feel completely uninspired and wonder how on earth I can find anything deep inside me that will motivate and inspire others.

Have you felt like this? A time when a voice in your head tells you to stay quiet? A time when you want to pull up the blankets and hide? I get it, I really do, because I have been there, and it is often during times of significant changes that this feeling is heightened.

So how do you move forward from this self chatter?

How do you stop listening to the voice egging you on to do nothing, or to do something else?

It seems that the voice in my head has always been there, and at times I’ve found myself having a conversation with it. Ignoring it serves no purpose.

Instead, I stay still and listen, taking on board what I need to acknowledge and then moving on. The voice can be a power for both good and evil. If I stop and listen and notice what lies beneath the surface, I often find the gold. I just need to dig deep.

And write it all down so I can refer to it later, again and again.

Where to find further inspiration?

If I need to work on blog posts and writing, I reach out to one or two of my business groups and ask what they need. More often than not, they provide me with a wealth of ideas.

Interestingly in days gone by, I would never do this. Admitting that I needed inspiration when I was supposed to be the one helping writers, was well, embarrassing.

Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies, doing things because that’s what we believe we have to be, instead of standing tall and embracing all we are.  No-one on this planet knows everything, so asking people what they want to learn and what they need help with is not embarrassing.  I realise now that it is actually the only way to be truly helpful.

Here’s what I’ve learned on my journey

Embrace your story

  1. Embrace your story: Every experience you’ve had, good or bad, shapes who you are. These stories are valuable. They are your unique voice and perspective. Share them without fear.
  2. Find your tribe: Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who understand your journey. They can offer support, ideas, and encouragement when you need it most.
  3. Take action: Inspiration often comes when you start doing. Write a few lines, brainstorm ideas, or talk to someone about your thoughts. Action breaks the inertia.
  4. Be kind to yourself: Understand that it’s okay to have off days and feel uninspired. The key is not to stay in that space. Acknowledge it and then take steps to move forward.
  5. Seek external inspiration: Read books, listen to podcasts, attend webinars, and connect with others. Sometimes, inspiration comes from the most unexpected places.
  6. Reflect and refine: Take time to reflect on your journey, your goals, and your why. Based on these reflections, refine your ideas and plans.

Inspiration is a journey, not a destination.

It’s about rediscovering your passion, your voice, and your purpose. So, next time you feel uninspired, remember you are not alone. Reach out, reflect, and take action. Your story matters, and it deserves to be told.

Stay inspired and keep writing. Your voice is needed in this world.
