Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Inspiration Is A Resource We Can All Use From Time To Time

Inspiration is not just a strange and unknowable form of play-pretend we use to help us through the hard moments. It’s something that can help direct our lives, influence our decision making, and can help us take the bolder option. It can often be something that gives us drive, ambition and interest in a certain topic. It’s also interesting that inspiration is something that transcends age, race, gender and profession. For example, a member of a royal household can be just as inspired by a piece of artwork as someone struggling to pay their rent half the world away.

This means that inspiration is a resource, and it’s something we could all use from time to time. A life without inspiration can quickly become saddened, unhappy and unsatisfactory. This is especially because as people with a usual flow of routine, we can quickly become bored when the emotional root of our interest starts to wane.

In order to ensure your inspiration is always kindled like a fire, consider our advice:

Find Inspiration In People

Finding inspiration in people is perhaps one of the most important lessons you can learn. For example, finding highly competent people in the industry you aspire to be part of can help you not only understand an ideal career path, but potentially help you celebrate in their achievements also. For examples, Cynthia Telles Kaiser Permanente boasts a range of excellent work in the psychiatric field, working in both philanthropic organizations, in clinics, and in the private sector. Stories like this can teach you that no matter how specialized you are, you can also translate those skills to something that has even more of a positive impact, and that strength in the working field needn’t always adapt to the easiest line of least-resistance.

Find Inspiration In Yourself

Finding inspiration in yourself can be an essential part of growing. For example, you will definitely have things you are proud of yourself for, and it’s likely that those are things you wish to one day replicate. If you have the courage to, you might choose to express more frequently that which you like about yourself. Do you have the courage to express yourself diligently when a problem occurs? Are you quick thinking, or great in a team? Try to emulate that feeling when pushing forward, and always consider that you can be the best if you try. Use your weaknesses as a measure of what you need to work on, a temporary hurdle and not a permanent failing. This way, you steward the healthiest mindset possible.

Find Inspiration In How Much There Is To Learn

Once you begin to truly develop an interest and a working capacity in something, it can be humbling to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes. With the willingness to grasp this with both hands, you can fall in love with a craft, and that can be what sustains you. For example, a scientific field will always have its mysteries, and maybe you are the one to solve them. Cooking is a rabbit hole that never ends, as creativity brings with it substance and new possibilities. With this in mind, you will never be gated by artificial boredom.

We wish you nothing but the best of success in all that you do.

Until next time my friends.
