Inspiration is all around us
What “Finding nuggets of wisdom” is all about:
What has always sustained my desire to achieve my dreams and life goals are the unlimited nuggets of wisdom and inspiration that pop up along my journey. Even through those long droughts and periods when society distracted me with its noise, little golden nuggets appeared that gave me renewed hope that a more meaningful life exists for me.
I think for many people such nuggets are harder to see in today’s world of ever-increasing distractions. With the growing presence of technology and media, with the growing pressure to have the latest gadgets and to keep up with the Joneses on social media, I think we often miss some of the greatest inspirations.
Mankind—and nature—has gifted us an endless supply of wisdom and inspiration, but we have to be looking and listening for it. I find it in songs, movies, art, books, and most recently in an endless supply of inspirational videos on YouTube. (Yes, the internet can be used for good. Go figure!)
So it is out there. But you’re not going to notice these nuggets when your brain is absorbing nothing but trash TV, trashy novels, trashy music, and trash on social media.
Let me share some of the wisdom and inspiration that I’ve discovered…
“One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” ~ Philippians 3:13
Man gets tired…Spirit don’t
Man surrenders…Spirit won’t
Man crawls…Spirit flies
Spirit lives when man dies
Man seems…Spirit is
Man dreams…The spirit lives
Man is tethered…Spirit is free
What spirit is man can be
~ Song by The Waterboys
