What has inspired you lately?

Dear reader,

Jujitsu-ing Reality.

What has inspired you lately? A family member, a friend, a book, a teacher, a movie, a song, a newspaper article, a conversation?

One of my favorite inspiration quotes is a cheesy one.

“If you can believe, you can achieve.”

It’s short, sweet, and to-the-point. I believe that it’s very important to have some sort of inspiration quote or motto (not like YOLO though… It’s a good one, but people interpret it in a not-so-swell way). Your motto will act as your own personal life coach. Whenever you’re feeling down, just remind yourself of your inspiration quote.

Someone who has inspired me a great deal is Colonel Chris Hadfield. I had the pleasure of meeting him before. You may recognize him from this video:

He’s someone that I (literally) looked up to. I’ve always wanted to go to space (although after watching Gravity starring Sandy B…), and he’s done it. Not only has he done it, he posted a ton of videos of what it’s like in the International Space Station. He closed the lines between earth-dwellers and astronauts.

Poems also hold a lot of inspiration. One of my favorites is Look Well to This Day by anonymous:

Look well to this day, 
For it and it alone is life. 
In its brief course 
Lie all the essence of your existence:

The Glory of Growth 
The Satisfaction of Achievement 
The Splendor of Beauty

For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is but a vision. 
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, 
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

If you’re still looking for some inspiration, Pinterest has a ton of inspiring things (check out my Pinterest page). Collect inspiring quotes, research inspiring people, read inspiring poems, and inspire yourself.

Yours truly,

Elise
