I don’t know why but the volume on the Neg. channel was definitely turned up to an excessive level this week. I don’t mean the kind of negativity where someone outright disagrees with you, I can handle that. I mean solid-gold negativity; “glass is half empty” type folk. For example, if I have the urge to dance they decide it’s the perfect opportunity to light my toe-shoes on fire. So, I quickly went in search of some positivity this weekend and found this (below). It was just what I needed and I intend to staple it to the fist of every bully that comes my way from here on out. It’s a lesson to us all: take time for simple pleasures and stop nit-picking the joy of those who already do. If this list doesn’t rock your world, make your own (step #1).

This gem of advice came from the Tumblr blog “Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men.” I am head-over-heels in love with this Blog. It’s run by 4 women and I kid you not, it is an amusement park for the eyes. I like to go there every now and then, just to browse or be inspired. Thanks ladies!

The word-wise web is a new addition to the {jcp} blog and a way for me to share my daily inspirations with you.  I put great value on vocabulary and find that the web is an incredibly rich resource for discovering those wordy bits of wisdoms. In fact, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to finding these.  So stay tuned for more and if you have any words of wisdom that you love, pray do tell!

Today’s wise words were found on Inspire Bohemia and were quoted by the author,  poet and philosopher- Henry David Thoreau. This has been a huge mantra of late for me. I often question my future steps and sometimes lack the confidence to go further. I have to remind myself- If I can’t see it, how can I expect other’s to? I’ll never know what lies ahead until I try. There are so many directions in which I’d like to go but fear has a way of tugging at my hope and adventure. (Honestly, it can be relentless at times). So I say, “F* that!” Recently I scheduled a meeting with my girlfriends to go over our bucket lists. There will be wine, great friends, discussions of upcoming adventures and… hope. And why not? Cause sometimes in order to move confidently into our dreams, we need a little kick in the a*.

If you’d like to share your current endeavors or upcoming adventures, we’d love to hear.

Inspiration can be as simple as saying hello to someone on the street, trying a new coffee shop, calling your mother, doing an extra set of crunches at the gym, planting a seed or sharing a new truth with a old friend.  Sometimes, if we just reserve the time to engage the people that surround us or share a bit of ourselves with the world, that is when we begin to create this powerful current of inspiration.  The more we change our routine of encouragement, the stronger this current becomes. It is my belief that inspiration is not a destination, it is a journey. It’s in the sharing of that journey that we ourselves become inspired.
