Inspiration !

What are the basic necessities for us to live? “food , clothing and shelter.”(I remember writing this down during a school homework.) But if you ask me today I would surely add one more … and that is “inspiration”.We need to live an inspired life. We only need to keep an open ear and clear sight to be inspired….it could be a beautiful flower , a clear sky , an insightful book , your best friend , a parent or sibling or even a flashing thought…just stay tuned and you are inspired ….and you can for sure see your life taking a beautiful turn.

The other day I was honored with an “inspiration award “ and was asked to note down the few things that inspire me. I started jotting down my inspirations in my head and found it hard to stop. But to mention a few…

I am first inspired by my parents. I am forever protected by their love and the feel of it does inspire me to be their daughter.

I am inspired by my teachers….the teachers who taught me various subjects and instilled good values, the teachers who turned out to be wonderful friends, the teachers who are legendary figures and have inspired me by their life long passion. They inspire always to remain a student.

I am inspired by my friends and my family. They inspire me to be happy and in love.

The innocence in my toddler and the confidence in my kindergartner give new meaning to my life and inspire me to live each moment.

I am inspired by books….books that speaks my thoughts, books that take me tours without moving an inch.They inspire me to explore.

I am inspired by spiritual talks, retreats and exercises that help me introspect. I am inspired by nature ….They inspire me to be enlightened.

I am inspired by dance and music ….I am inspired to lead a passionate life.

.the list is long ……and I am grateful for this inspired life….

Let me pass this Inspiration award from my sister Suma to a few bloggers who have

inspired me… I would love to know about their inspiration.


From Suma to Cynthia of Tastes like home, Susan of The well seasoned cook, Shn of Mishmash and my brother Naveen of Life is beautiful.
