I am inspired!
Yes, I am inspired.
It may surprise you to know that at this moment, my inspiration is neither from a beautiful picture nor an amazing speech.
This inspiration is neither from the complexity of a new solution, nor from how detailed and elaborate a new approach turned out to be.
I am neither inspired by an advancement in technology nor a new skill/technique in generating money.
I am inspired by the few words of my friend, Alexandra.
Her words are simple but honest, humble but true.
Inspiration is neither hidden in flamboyance nor ambiguity.
Inspiration hides in wisdom.
Sometimes, the simplicity of wisdom is so humbling.
We seek wisdom on the tallest mountains or in the deepest seas.
We search for wisdom in the words of great philosophers and in ancient books.
Yet wisdom stares at us from the casual words of our usual friends.
“In my life I have been fooled by confident people giving ignorant answers and I have been given confidence by simple people admitting their ignorance… I decided I would have no qualms with admitting my ignorance as long as I remedied it. I seldom go to sleep with a question on my mind because I know that I would not be able to quiet my mind till I found the answer…” -Alexandra.
We often hear such words in passing and take them for granted.
We often come across inspiration and hardly notice it.
We often see wisdom while passing by and we don’t recognize it.
You may attend huge seminars in a bid to find inspiration, but not until you pay attention to your regular conversations, will you get inspired.
Wondering how these words could inspire me?
Those were the words that inspired this post.
What inspires you?
Inspiration: I am inspired.
