Finding Inspiration

I’m sitting at a bar right now, enjoying a beer that, honestly, isn’t that great. But still, I am enjoying it for the simple fact that I enjoy trying new beers. I dunno what else I should be doing, but I know what else I could be doing.

It got me to thinking: Where can you find inspiration when all you are looking for is contentment? Why seek inspiration to do something more if you feel content with where you’re at? Quite the dilemma, aye?

Well, I’ve realized that even in contentment there is still more to life. You can be happy with what you have, but there will still be more that adds to your happiness. That is, if you are only at content. You could proceed past that; I don’t know what we would call it…overly contented satisfactory syndrome…sure O.C.S.S…sounds good to me. Anyway, you can be fine with your current situation, but how can improving it ever hurt, right?

Now I’ve gone off topic. All I wanted to know was how to be inspired when there seemed to be nothing pushing you to be such. I think the answer lies within the question: What do you need from life? What do you want from life is not a pointed enough question. So many things are there to be desired but not needed. Even in contentment there is uncertainty. What if something happens that knocks you from your current position? Are you prepared? Will you still be able to provide for yourself, your family? Will the life you are living be affected? That takes some thought.

So finding that inspiration? You just gotta remember that nothing in life is certain, nothing is guaranteed. Think about that. Then look.

That is all. GA
