In my last post, I explored the delicate art of working to create, find, collect, and revisit things that inspire you. Many of these things are also things that relax and refresh my mind, soul, and body, because I am most inspired when I am calm and happy.
I ened with a challenge…”create your own list.”
But I thought I would share at least some of my list with you, as a reminder for me and…as inspiration or new ideas for you.


To Search:

Find a space that is full of light – capture it
Find a moment when he least expects it, and surprise him with a kiss
In the middle of crazy, stop and just sit…be still in your mind or pray/mediate
Talk a walk, a hike, a run and look at the nature – you’ll always find inspiration
Singing worships songs and allow the praise to open up your heart to God
Journal about anything…nothing – you’ll discover wonders
Ask questions
People watch
Sit still, close your eyes and focus on your other four senses
In busy place search for little, forgotten things that others pass by
Slowly taste what you are eating or drinking – make it like the first time again


To Collect:

Pick a theme and fill a Pinterest Board
Collect thank you cards, birthday cards, letters, and pictures on a cork board
Buy and use body wash and lotion of the same scent
Buy and wear matching undergarments
Write a Gifts List – a collection of thanks
Save articles and blog posts that inspire you
Write down favorite quotes in a journal – keep adding to it
Ask friends for new recipes to try


To Revisit:

Look back through past blog posts
Flip through your wedding scrapbook
Go back to a beautiful place that you frequent – make it a routine
Scroll through your old pins on Pinterest
Look through your favorite Instagramer’s photos
Read old notes, love letters, or birthday cards
Browse your own photos on Facebook – let your past inspire your present
Remake a favorite recipe, but give it a twist
Reminisce with a family member


To Create:

Add little decorations to a shelf
Put a candle in the center of the table
Pre-serve food and make it look pretty on the plate
Tidy your nightstand or the top of your dresser
Fluff the pillows on the couch and refold the throw blankets
Take a long, hot bathtub with a good book
Plan a coffee date with your husband, best friend, or mentor
Organize and clean a messy drawer
Put clean sheets on your bed and fresh towels in the bathroom

I would love to be inspired by your lists. Leave your ideas or unique items that are on your list in the comments below.

Be blessed
