I thought I would take a quick moment to write a little about inspiration and introduce the Be Inspired section of Healthy Home Principles (HHP) site. Here I hope to inspire you and even myself to stretch ourselves and make a difference some where. I hope you will be blessed by this section.
Inspiration? What inspires you?
Inspiration, where does it come from?
Is it an encouraging word?
A picture or scene?
Perhaps a challenge?
How about a criticism?
Without inspiration the world would be a dull place; don’t you think? No new inventions, no new art, no new books, no new shoe styles. I love shoes! ? The list is endless, of course, because inspiration affects every facet of our lives.
Yes, life is full of the “whatever’s”
but, we can make a difference no matter where we are by evaluating and then purposefully choosing.
- Take that encouraging word and let it inspire you to stretch a little further.
- Witness an act of kindness or mistreatment? How could you pass that kindness on or make right the ill deed?
- Did someone or some situation challenge you? Then let that challenge inspire you to be better. You know, you are stronger than you think you are.
- Were you criticized? What an opportunity to look inside yourself, evaluate, and use it for your good.
Be inspired to be a better person, eat a little healthier, create a more balanced home. Even though there will always be challenges, you/me can be the one to make a change and hopefully inspire someone else. It doesn’t have to be a huge thing; simple is always good in my book. Simple changes: Start with a smile. ? A smile invariably inspires improvement. Use freshly milled flour to make those cookies for a healthier goody. Go ahead and do that chore today that seems like such a “chore”. Little changes may not seem like much, but they can have a huge impact. You never know how far that little “ripple” will go.
Are you inspired yet? I am just writing about it! Let’s go change our little corners of the world!!!
