This week I’ve been in California and today I went for a run around Disneyland and Downtown Disney. Yes… I’m a Disney fan but our hotel happened to be next door to the park and I needed a run. So I did…
As I’m running, I’m watching families head toward the park and noticing all the happy faces of kids who are getting ready to be wow’d by Mickey Mouse while their parents have this somewhat stressed look on their faces… It’s a fun site.
But here’s what happens to me when I’m out and about in my travels. The weather, the sites, the sounds, the smells…Palm trees and sunsets over the ocean… they all play into the experience I have at the moment. Today I ran, listening to Coldplay, enjoying the weather and the smelling the fresh flowers along the sidewalks. It was perfect.
Those simple elements send my mind racing with ideas, filling my mind with inspiration to dream big dreams and work out in my head the likely hood of those dreams actually being fulfilled.
The crazy thing is… those moments of inspiration are so valuable to me because they really do help me get from point “a” to point “b” as I work through different ideas in my head.
I’m always amazed at how much my senses play into my day… my life… how I process life and gain inspiration for my dreams in life.
How does this work for you?
How does inspiration usher it’s way into your dreams?
Is it through certain music?
Certain places you go?
People you are around?
A drive in the car?
What is it?
