Inspiration: catnip

on June 29, 2012


Awareness of the world around you is the soul of inspiration. It’s like catnip : stimulating to the senses or relaxing like a sedative. Opportunities present themselves  throughout the day  and night or through an eventful time in life allowing emotions to escalate or simmer, much like the effects of catnip on the cat!

Stop! Look around: observe, listen, embrace, breathe and savor the simple things of life – those that surround you everyday, those that heighten your senses or calm your mood, those that say “We are the little things that make a difference.”

What has inspired your thoughts today?

      Debbie, wish you could have found your inspiration at catnip but sometimes it just comes without really searching. Perhaps you need the ‘relaxing like a sedative’ side of catnip to set your mind at ease:>) Want you to know your post Perched on a Hill was pretty awesome!

      Thank you for honoring catnipoflife with The Reader Appreciation Award! I revisited your blog but did not see any references. Any ‘rules’ I need to know in order to pay it forward?
