The true inspiration


What is it that inspires us in life? Is it just a few golden words that we read , appreciate and then forget.
No....... a true inspiration is never about forgetting, its always about remembering what you've learnt.
Great people have left great examples behind, for us to follow. But do we actually follow them in the correct sense of the word."Oh!What lines, truely wonderful!"but when the time comes to actually follow the things that once inspired us , we tend to hide behind the convinient ideologies that we set for ourselves, in order to live . Then the question arises , is just living or mere existence enough for making life worthwile.Don't think so, coz if it was the case, we would have never got our hand on the varied inspirational stuff left by people, ninety percent of which are actual experiences and the rest just seeped down through generations.
Are we inspirational enough to inspire others? Do we set good examples for others to follow?Do we blame ourselves before pointing at someone else? Do we practise what we preach?
Whenever I come across an inspirational piece, my mind gets jammed with all these questions,and then I try hard to make each inspiration a part of my life...sometimes I succeed..rest goes in vain.
I thank all my friends who write such inspirational posts for giving me a reason to think and reflect on, because I truely believe that theres a lesson hidden behind every word...its for us to explore and then imbibe :)

hi,

it is the same with me. I stumble upon many inspirations and I've learned that we need a daily dose of inspiration to keep us going ;)

thanks for this sweet musing and inspiration,

Hi Sana,

Well-written, as usual. Very rarely do we come across true inspiration.

Thanks, and have a nice day :)

I would like to hope that as our lives touch and we truly are real and honest we do inspire one another to do the same. I enjoyed your post and one thing I take away from it is the fact that you are a thinker. I too am a thinker, hence the name much2ponder. Thank you for giving me food for thought today:)
