Our lives are a series of unique moments that flow into years and define who we are. Those moments vary between sensational, acceptable and complicated. The higher the exciting moments go, the lower the troublesome times feel.
In this poem, I wrote I talk about inspiration and how you can take it to heart and use it to lift you up. I am a personal growth and inspirational writer. “To inspire you” she says is my way of saying, my hope is to inspire you but how do you apply this to your life. Most of my work is in the form of poetry placed on pictures. In this post, I will help you understand the emotion of inspiration in your life.
Why do you need inspiration?
Why do you need inspiration? Has it been a hard day and you need a lift? Have you had a few rough days that are not improving? Or have you been having a series of disturbing events that seem to last forever and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel?
The intensity of a tough situation is different for each person. What may be overwhelming for me may be an ordinary time for you. What may be life changing for you may be a slight bump in the road for another person.
Regardless of the reason, you may need inspiration the outcome will be the same. For a moment in your day, you will feel lighter and more positive.
You will experience the emotion of a situation, and you will remember the way it made you feel.
The quote by Maya Angelou says it all so well,
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
A scenario of evoked emotion
Have you ever been sick and required medical attention? You had to go to the ER or your doctor’s office. You tried to get better at home, but it wasn’t working. No matter what you did, that fever persisted.
When you get to the ER or doctor’s office the nurse comes into the room; she says “Why are you here and what do you want from us?” How did her question make you feel? What emotion did she evoke in you? Did it make you feel like a worthless burden or angry? The way she phrased her question gave you a strong impression.
You’re in the same situation, but this time when the nurse comes into your room she says, “You must be feeling miserable, what can I do to help you feel better?” What emotions did this question evoke in you? The nurse phrased this question in a way to validate your feelings. You felt a sense of peace and comfort.
You will remember the emotions produced in each of these situations. You may not recognize the details about the visit you will remember how you felt.
When I write a piece that may inspire others, I always hope it will touch the world, but I know that is not reality. Anything I write or another person writes as inspiration can be directed at one particular person because each of us looks at life differently.
How to apply inspiration
When you see inspirational writing that touches you and resonates home don’t lose sight of it. Take that emotion to your heart. Take a minute to remember how it made you feel. Then memorize that feeling. Cherish the sense of well-being it gave you. You may not recapture the words, but you will remember the emotional sensation that a bit of inspiration gave you.
Emotion is the sought-after desire that inspiration is designed to give you. The tightening in your heart that will lift for a moment so you can regain your balance. I write inspiration to allow you to have moments of peace to regroup.
So, I say to you I want to inspire you with a positive note. Please take it to heart and remember the emotion and feeling it gave you. Please remember how this bit of inspiration lifted you out of the troublesome time and gave you a moment of peace.
