31 Ways to Get Inspired and Change Your Life Now

ways to get inspired

Imagine changing the trajectory of your life from a single spark of inspiration. Imagine changing the vibration and the energy of your thoughts to create the power within. Imagine stepping outside your comfort zone and letting go of your limiting beliefs to finally do whatever your hearts desire. What did you see? How did you feel?

Early this year I set out to do what I would have used to think was the impossible – to write a blog every week. For seven months I set the intention to dedicate my life as a writer to inspire and encourage others to also live a more conscious and happy life. And today my friends I celebrate the anniversary of doing just that! 31 weeks and 31 blogs later I did it! Despite all the international travel (read: jet-lag), two young children with numerous holidays, sometimes technical difficulties, and recovering from an injured back –  I did it. And I’m here to tell you, you can too! You can do whatever your heart desires. You have the power within to create a life you love.

There is always inspiration around you to encourage you on your path. Stay conscious and see the signs. Get inspired and set an intention so aligned with your life’s purpose that the universe has you back.

As you may know all my blogs start with an inspirational quote. In celebration of doing the once seemingly impossible, today I share all 31 quotes with links to their respective blogs. May you too find inspiration and encouragement through the life and words of myself and of those included below.

“All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by one of two emotions – fear or love…Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, and harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked.

Fear attacks, love amends.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch
