Everyday Inspiration (My New Blog)

By on Jun 02, 2013


When you do not know what you are doing and what you are doing is the best — that is inspiration. – Robert Bresson

Some days I hit the wall. On these days, I can’t find the right words and my inspiration feels like it has fallen into a dark, deep hole.

Do you ever have days like these?

When this happens, I don’t panic. I may get frustrated, but I don’t panic because it’s a problem with a simple solution – I make time to be inspired.

I take a few minutes to clear my mind; and my calendar, and do the things that fill me back up with inspiring thoughts. For me, it helps to go for a run, watch a baseball game or to write.

So, when Beliefnet.com invited me to write for their wonderful community, I was excited to join. This will give me the opportunity, and challenge, to write more often and in return, be reminded of what my soul needs on the days when it feels empty, dry and uninspired.

My blog there is called Everyday Inspiration and it debut yesterday, June 1.

How to Find Everyday Inspiration

You will find me at Everyday Inspiration three days a week.

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday I will post an article about everyday inspiration. However, The BridgeMaker isn’t going anywhere. This blog will always be my home and I promise to keep giving The BridgeMaker the best of me.

Here’s an excerpt from the first post, How to Find Everyday Inspiration. I hope you enjoy reading my new blog:

Writing about inspiring things is like medicine for my soul. It reminds me that no matter how difficult life can be, I can always find something that will inspire me; something that will lift my spirits and something that will turn even the hardest days into days that are worth savoring.

All I have to do, all you have to do, is to take the time to look for the inspiration.

The good news is inspiration is always there, waiting for us and nudging us to remember that every day is indeed worth savoring because every day is a gift.

Who am I?

Believe me; I’m still looking for some of the answers.

With 50 years under my belt, I’m learning that who I am isn’t as important as what I do. My actions – the kindness I share; the love I give and the encouragement I offer; is what matters most. And when I do these things, I always seem to run into myself on the journey to discovering who I am.

It will be my pleasure to share a properly-sized window into my life. By doing so, my hope is you’ll see your life reflected back. And in that reflection, you will see that you are not alone.

We are walking together – walking to a place full of hope, peace, happiness and inspiration that is meant for all of us.
