Where To Find Inspiration

In a world that sometimes goes dark and evil
You wonder where to find inspiration.
The best part is that it is all around :
The simple people will often take you by surprise
By touching lives and small acts of kindness
And there are wonderful people always sharing inspiring stories
Of chasing dreams and making a difference
Of inspiring parents and friends that care
But the best inspiration is found
In quiet times and reflective days
Deep within yourself.

Over the last few days, I’ve been focusing on women and issues of midlife women, as part of The Write Tribe Festival of Words. I have showcased some pretty awesome midlife bloggers too. Today I found this brilliant song – which seems to fit in so well with my theme and I just had to share it with you. Enjoy!

Part of the lyrics of May I Suggest

There is a world
That’s been addressed to you
Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes
A secret world
Like a treasure chest to you
Of private scenes and brilliant dreams that mesmerise
A lover’s trusting smile
A tiny baby’s hands
The million stars that fill the turning sky at night
Oh I suggest
Oh I suggest to you
Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life

There is a hope
That’s been expressed in you
The hope of seven generations, maybe more
And this is the faith
That they invest in you
It’s that you’ll do one better than was done before
Inside you know
Inside you understand
Inside you know what’s yours to finally set right
And I suggest
And I suggest to you
And I suggest this is the best part of your life

No matter what age you are, this is the best part of your life – if you see it as such!

    Gorgeous post!!! It is so true that inspiration has to come from within ourselves. It really is mind over…our own mind.

    Inspiration, strength, beauty, …. all are within us. Yet, most of us seek these things elsewhere. Even when it comes to tourism, people seek beautiful sights in foreign lands, totally ignoring the equally, if not more beautiful sights that are available in our own country.

    “No matter what age you are, this is the best part of your life – if you see it as such!” True, only “if you see it as such”!

    Corinne, it is a pleasure to read your post. How truly you have said that inspiration comes from within.

    Correct. Inspiration comes from deep within most of the time, if only we’d clear the haze of uncertainly and feel it! 🙂 Lovely verse (thanks for the love) and beautiful song! I love it when lyrics follow a video – so nice to sing along (or pretend to!)

    Hugs! I am inspired!

    Hi Corinne – lovely song. Inspiration comes from within and can also come from around us. Good to have a lot of inspirational people in our lives who can cultivate that inner-inspiration:) People inspire. So does nature. And the divine.

    Absolute truth Corinne. And do I need to say that Rumi is one of my favourites 🙂

    That is true, Corinne…wherever you are is the best, whatever age you are at, its is the best…only the perspective needs to be changed. Thanks for this post.

    And that song is brilliant…heard it for the first time, though…but great!
