Is there something in your life that you are excited about? I’m not talking about a relationship, or even money, I’m talking about some thing. An experience, a new thing that you are learning to do, something that really lights you up. We get inspired when we see something that turns us on(still not talking about relationships). Some particular musicians, play music that makes the hair stand up on my arms. It calls to me, and it feels like a magnet and I am steel. It calls me to attention. Sometimes I get an idea for a painting in my head and I can’t rest until I paint it. More and more often lately I feel led to write, and the words just flow from me. It is good to be inspired.
Inspiration isn’t excitement, it is deeper than that. It is enthusiasm. It is a connection, and a strong one. I have often marveled at how people are attracted to different things. Some people are very outdoors type people, some aren’t. People like different kinds of music and art, people have different aspirations. I have always been one to follow my enthusiasm. If I like a band, you can bet I am going to see them. If I want to try something, you can bet I will. I know that when I put my mind to something, I can do it. I know that my enthusiasm, what magnetizes me, is the doing of the Universe. So I go towards the light, so to speak.
My message for you today is “Follow your enthusiasm”. Know that it is there for a reason. This enthusiasm is like a light that the Universe is shining to let you know which way to go. When you are inspired and enthusiastic, this is the path to follow. This doesn’t always mean finally taking those music lessons you have always wanted to take, or that exotic vacation. Sometimes it means buckling down and pushing through the class you don’t like, or maybe taking care of an elderly parent. Inspiration is always doing the right thing. Only you know what is right for you.
