The Little Pod of Inspiration

The Little Pod of Inspiration

Life moves pretty fast and, in this always-on-the-go world that we find ourselves in, it's becoming ever-harder to pause and reflect on what we see. Yet, if we don't, we miss the opportunity to experience the things that could truly change our lives. The Little Pod of Inspiration aims to be that opportunity to stop and savour not only the events around us, but the people, the experiences, the sights and sounds. Through these inspiring stories and poems of love, redemption, and change, take a moment to really see all the inspirational treasures that are present. Inspiration is all around us. All we have to do is look.

Our minds are so free as kids. We imagine everything and anything. Our creativity knows no limits, and our imagination is boundless.

When do we lose that?

For many of us, long term vision can be a scary concept. This is understandable, because it usually means that we have to put our faith in something we're doing now even though it's not showing a return until much later.

But here's the thing - big successes all failed to start with, in one way or another.

Take a moment to ask yourself these two questions:

As children, we're unafraid to take risks. We see the world as one big adventure, and if we hurt ourselves along the way, our parents are there to make it better, and we move on to the next adventure.

Unfortunately, as adults, it seems we've forgotten the art of learning from our mistakes.

Footprints in the sand are fleeting - a transient snapshot in time that disappear when the tide comes in. Even the footprints that are further in eventually become invisible alongside a million others.

But for that moment in time, they're physical. They're proof that you did something.

As children, we have unbridled aspirations. We dream to be astronauts. We dream to be princesses. We dream to be the world's greatest sports star. We dream.

But if we don't meet fulfil those dreams, we never feel like we've failed. So why don't we carry that wisdom into our adult lives?
