Inspiration is all around us. There is so much that inspire and guide our lives. Family, friends, animals and nature are just some of the things that inspire me each day. And as my gravatar says, “compassion” motivates me. It’s the driving force behind my words.
Yet, there is something that gives me that extra burst of energy that propels me to be bigger than myself. It is the guiding light in my life. That guiding light for me is a strong spiritual connection. It empowers me to begin each day with a renewed sense of hope. Many of you share that same spiritual connection that guides us in life.
Regardless of how we uniquely choose to define it, many of us find hope and inspiration in embracing the “light.” It gives us strength to face each new day. It brings meaning to our lives.
We don’t often share our sense of spirituality with each other. We don’t always wear it on our sleeve, so to speak. Moreover, it’s not uncommon for people to avoid discussions revolving around faith and spirituality because it’s often considered “taboo” to do so. Yet, for many of us it is the strength behind our words and actions.
Being spiritually connected helps me weather the storms. After all, life does present challenges from time to time. Yet, during the trials and tribulations of life, I find peace amid the chaos. I’d rather walk together in the light than walk alone in the darkness.
The “light” reassures me that we can make a difference together. It inspires me. It gives me purpose. It guides me.
So, what guides you in life? Would you describe yourself as a spiritual person? If so, does it motivate you to be more compassionate in life? Does that compassion crossover to all living things?
