Taking inspiration from our surroundings

December 9, 2018

Inspiring surroundings

No matter where we find ourselves, taking inspiration from our surroundings is an option always available to us and one worth taking up.

With so much pressure on us to conform to a standard set by society through advertising and the like, taking inspiration from our surroundings is an approach offering a personalized, unique perspective on life.

It says much about how we are feeling towards ourselves and our environment when we are able to go about taking inspiration from our surroundings. The input the moment gives us could be that missing ingredient we need to ensure the day is experienced to the full. Letting things merely drift by, on the other hand, might mean we miss out on that something special.

With travel such a key daily feature for many people nowadays, the concept of taking inspiration from our surroundings is virtually only limited by our imagination. Each location offers something new, exciting, unique, characteristic or whatever word we wish to use as a description.

Connecting with this resource is a task made easier through practice. And as we get into the habit of taking inspiration from our surroundings, it might become a source of regular input for us, whether we are here, there or any point in between.

Thanks for reading this ‘Taking inspiration from our surroundings’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Heart Poems On The Sea. The NEW book

January 14, 2018

Ebook cover

Heart poems on the sea, riding the current of life.”

Following the publication of Heart Poems On Waves, it felt only right to continue along similar lines with this new offering.

The reflections brought together here represent an eclectic gathering of ideas, loosely linked to the sense freedom we may find whilst by the sea.

I hope this collection of heart poems on the sea gives you something to ponder and, ideally, enjoy. It was a pleasure for me to write these inspirational poems and it would be pleasing to think you find value in the words.

With each book I write, another piece of me is set out in words. Heart Poems On The Sea reflects my love of the sea and the influence it has on my view of life.

With this book, you will get the opportunity to:

a) Read twenty-six poems from the heart;
b) Explore ideas wrapped in words;
c) Apply any new thinking in your life.

Possibly this book becomes a catalyst for further reflection on what is dear to you.

Though I am experienced in the field of professional and personal development, you are the expert on your life. Implementation of any new thinking will, of course, need to be undertaken by you, I cannot do it for you.

With that said, let me thank you for your presence here and wish you Happy Reading!

Everyday life

July 9, 2012

Watching the world go about its business, everyday life in the city we can say, most likely underlines how similar we all are.

Holding onto dreams and goals, hopes and plans, each of us moves through activities making up everyday life. The tasks filling our everyday life may perhaps appear as routine and mundane if compared to the lifestyles of the so-called ‘rich and famous’.

Yet belonging to each person is quite possibly a story of braveness and inspiration. Who knows what health issues, work issues, or life issues in general these people are coping with right now? Perhaps they are the rocks for their families, the sole breadwinners or carers sacrificing for the well being of loved ones.

Looking again with awareness of life’s full range of challenges we may see everyday life in another light, one filled with incredible people undertaking tasks which to them and those close to them mean the whole world in their anything but everyday life.

Thanks for spending some time here today. If you’d like to contact me, as part of everyday life I can be reached by e-mail, through my website, blog or via Twitter.

Thanks again and goodbye for now.

Reflections – Inspiration

January 19, 2012

Inspiration, it seems, is able to reach us in many different ways.

On occasions inspiration, in the form of a solution to a challenging question, may present itself just as we are about to renounce our involvement in a matter.

At times, we might be engaged in one activity, only to find ourselves distracted by an inspiring thought concerning an issue far from our mind right then.

In a sense inspiration is similar to the sun, ever present yet not always in sight. Trusting we can tap into its power is part of life I guess. However, actually receiving inspiration may require some input on our part.

For example, we need to give ourselves the chance to tune into inspiration. This could mean finding a quiet moment for reflection, or possibly partaking of a brainstorming session. Certainly any number of creative exercises can connect us to inspiration.

As the Buddha said: “It is you who must make the effort. Masters only point the way.”

Likewise, it is not unknown for inspiration to surface during a coaching session as the client explores options regarding objectives and actions. In any case and regardless of the setting, it appears inspiration will find us when we are open and present to it.

Thanks for reading this today. To share your thoughts on inspiration, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.

Brian.
