Maybe it’s her: the way she throws her head back with abandon and laughs from the core of her being.
Or maybe him: the way he gives selflessly over and over again just to help someone in need.
Or maybe her: the way she feels so passionately that it consumes her whole being.
Maybe it’s him: the way he always has a kind word just when you need it.
Or maybe them: the way that they give and give and give again.
Maybe it’s her: the way she isn’t giving up, even when she wants to.
Or maybe it’s him: the way he works so hard and is so much smarter than me.
We can find inspiration when we choose to. It is everywhere, if only we choose to see it. Choosing isn’t always easy. I’m too often quick to see the negative, the messy room, the empty seat at the dinner table, the way that passion consumes beautiful and frightening in the same flame.
Those things are easy to see when we’ve been pressed on, pressed in from every side. But when we choose to look with eyes that are willing to scan and adjust and blur the background so the beauty takes center stage, then we can be inspired.
That is where beauty and inspiration run deep and course through my veins.
That is where the pulsing in my head cannot compete with the pounding of my heart.
Inspiration is everywhere we choose to see it.
And maybe that is what inspires me today.
Maybe it’s me: when I choose to adjust my focus and see clearly.
