It occurred to me tonight, as we spring forward, that there are so many images and quotes that can inspire me. Likely anyone for that matter.
Whether you be an insomniac like I can be so many times, or an early riser in other parts, one can enjoy peaceful solitude or united solidarity with talented people of the world, from around the world.
It should be impossible to feel lonely in this brave new world, where just about anything we do, is centered on a computer or television screens. Our jobs, our entertainment, our creativity, our memories.
Like so many others, life is in control. It sometimes leaves gaps on the online world when you become enveloped with warmth from real life events, family, friends.
More often, you are in survival mode in the outside world: juggling jobs, finances, commitments, obligations, taxes, crises, pushing dreams and goals to the bottom of the pressure broil of keeping things together, whether mentally exhausted or morale challenged.
So what do you do? To find a release to avoid the pressure explode with stress, health ailments, energy depletion .... what can help?
Creativity can be an escape.
Like exercise is optimum for ongoing health invigoration, so can creativity be a great way to exorcise those demons pressing down on you from real commitments.
Take a stroll through the universe .... online. For images that appeal to your senses, make you smile, make you in awe. Look for quotes that speak to you personally, that can inspire you to move on from just barely getting by to where you belong.
Your sole purpose in life makes your soul sing. Finding images to escape to and enjoy can go a step further when merged with stimulating verses or quotes. Be moved to create your own. That can be creative. That can be a release.
Be at peace every day. Be satisfied with what you have. Don't try to reach too far into the future so that you have lost the gift of enjoyment of today.
It is in you to be enveloped in a positive enjoyable world. To discover what it is will guide you to what others find similarly mirrored philosophy and talent unfolds, makes connection.
