We have talked about an inspired life being a daily journey, taking steps toward simplicity, mindfulness and a thankful heart. This journey will be as unique as you are; there is no single road map. But there are some common elements that fellow travelers turn to on the road to a more inspired life.
They often take a moment and set their intention. What is it you need in your life right now? Perhaps you want to declare an intention to slow down, say no to a few things, to smile more, complete a task or make a new friend. If you want peace, try being more peaceful. If you seek joy, try being kind. If you want love, be more loving. Setting your intention can open up wonderful new things in your life.

This can be as simple as acknowledging your gratitude with a first sip of coffee or it can be a time of meditation or devotions when you more fully seek out a spiritual time of gratitude.
