Inspiration: (noun) 1: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation. 2: the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions. 3: the act of influencing or suggesting opinions.

You’ve just seen the definition of ‘inspiration.’ Did you look at the title? Inspiration is so concrete, so definite, but it’s so much more that that.
Inspiration is a simple thing. You don’t have to be an artist, a poet, a painter, or a writer to find it. Even the most mundane of things can give you inspiration. Inspiration is not something you find, it’s something that finds you. It catches you when you least expect it, and then holds on tight.
Say you look out the window in the rain. You watch the drops slide drearily down the windowpane, the rain pour from the sky in sheets that hit the ground as heavily as a landslide of rocks from a mountain. Yet here you sit, warm and dry, in your favorite chair right by the window, a cup of hot tea in your hand, and a warm blanket on your lap.
That is inspiration.
This is the kind of thing I’m talking about. All I want to do is show you where inspiration is and how you can find it, and as your Inspiration Guide, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
