While happiness feels light and blissful, inspiration feels energizing, focused, empowering, exhilarating, challenging, creative, driven, or stimulating.

When we are inspired, we feel alive, free and connected to our true selves.

Being inspired is a form of authentic positive energy and emotion felt immediately as we indulge in and celebrate what we love and enjoy about life. Seeking inspiration is a much easier and actionable choice than trying to choose to “be happy.” Living the inspired life means you’ll seek inspiration and you’ll attract inspiration. Before you know it, inspiration will surprise and delight you everywhere, and you’ll find yourself living your inspired life!

Inspiration gives us confidence because it can’t be judged. When we share our inspired selves, being authentic and vulnerable becomes easier and being truly “seen” becomes possible. And being truly “seen” is the only way we can be truly loved.

There are three attributes inherently required to feel inspired: being connected to our true selves, acting in honor of our true selves, and being present. We can summon the life-changing benefits of these attributes by simply choosing to dive into and inspired moment!
