Things That Inspire Me

This is Post 9 of a 31-Day Blogging Challenge hosted by the Ultimate Blog Challenge

I already mentioned that I like the outdoors. Taking time for downtime always leads to inspiration for me. Rather though than write an essay, I’m just going to make a bullet list of things that inspire me. Perhaps some of these things also inspire you.

  • The smell of rain
  • Playing with kids
  • Taking a hike
  • Sitting on my back porch
  • Listening to snippets of conversation
  • Reading a good book
  • Reading stories of success
  • Water – lakes, rivers, waterfalls, creeks, ocean
  • Trees
  • Board games
  • Rest
  • Reading philosophy
  • Long runs
  • Math problems
  • Logical proofs
  • Viewing artwork
  • Reading with kids
  • Introducing others to new ideas
  • Science projects with kids
  • Volunteering
  • Writing
  • Poetry
  • Cleaning
  • Long conversations with good friends
  • Making art with kids
  • Delicious meals
  • Meandering walks
  • Theatre
  • Blank canvas

I just noticed – none of these things involve social media 😉
So the next time you’re needing inspiration, perhaps it’s time to put down the digital world and look around in the physical world.
