Is the world lacking inspiration and you need some help finding that spark again?
Are you feeling like you’re in a creative funk?
It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of our everyday lives.
Between juggling our personal relationships, kids and careers, while still trying to maintain a bit of sanity, that’s a full-time job in itself!
But it’s important not to let your life be consumed by routine, mundane matters.
We also need inspiration and imagination to thrive and grow!
Nothing is worse than looking back at the year and wondering not only where the time has gone but what did you really accomplish?
Did you just get by…
Or did you crush your goals and have a year to remember!
Now, at the beginning of 2019, it’s the perfect time to regroup and adjust so that you can say at the end of this year, you sought out inspiration and you found it.
So get out in the world!
Inspiration is all around us, from the people we meet to the sounds we hear walking down the street (see I’m making poetry already, ha)!
But really, take a minute to truly absorb what’s around you and you'll be surprised at what happens.
Even if you’re not an outdoorsy person (God knows I’m not), nature has always proven to be a great kickstarter to inspire because of all the natural wonders of the world.
Meditation teaches you to live in the now, to appreciate your world and surroundings and it can be a great time to decompress and get inspired.
Try Something New
Always wanted to learn to cook? Or paint… Or play guitar… Whatever!
Trying something new can evoke new feelings and emotions that will lead to even more inspiration!
Develop Your Passions
You may already know you love something but you’ve let it slip through the cracks as time passed by.
Make a commitment to include it in your life and stick to it.
You already know you love it, why not fuel that passion to create happiness and inspire the rest of your life as well!
They might seem obvious but these are simply a few suggestions to ignite that fire within you.
We all can get comfortable in our daily lives and forget to challenge ourselves.

Life is meant to be interesting, fun and exciting!
Remember, without the spark, your life can become pretty lackluster.
Try any or all of these suggestions to jumpstart your new year and get ready to rock 2019!
