I was recently honored with the Inspiring Blog Award from A Story Book World: http://astorybookworld.blogspot.com/
I started this blog as mainly a lesson in thankfulness – a lesson for myself. I do, also, if possible, try to inspire others as well as myself. Writing and sharing can be inspirational in itself. Although this blog is about my own journey, it is also a connection to like-minded people.
Inspiration for me comes from what I term the “real world.” By real world I mean the most pristine example I can think of – nature. I’m one of those people who energize in sunlight and in the peacefulness and the solitude of wooded areas, and flowing water. I’m also inspired by the true nature of humans, maybe what some would term as the soul.
Too often, the artificial world slips in and inspiration slips out. The artificial world to me is sadly mostly the world we live in with so much technology, the world of egos, and the world of money. It’s the things that without balance can reap havoc on the human spirit. This existence on earth is an existence of duality in all things. Balance is key.
This past weekend we visited the Abbey of Gethsemani near Bardstown, Kentucky. It was a place of beauty and serenity. http://www.monks.org/ It was definitely a place full of inspiration.
I’m thankful for the inspiration found there, and I am also thankful my husband and I live in a place surrounded by nature. Thanks, Deirdra from A Story Book World for finding my blog to be inspiring.
