Inspiration has been the theme of the week and, as we have reflected on who, or what, inspires us we are given the opportunity to reflect on our behaviours and attitudes and how these can impact ourselves and others.
Quite often we think about inspiration coming from an external source and there is potential for us to rely on input coming to us.
There is so much opportunity though for us to start with ourselves. As a new mum I remember being told to ‘look after yourself or you can’t care for your family.’ These wise words resound even more now. Whether directed to parents or children, the current situation requires us to care for ourselves and those around us.
We can take our theme for the year, Challenge, combine it with Inspiration and challenge ourselves to be our own inspiration. This could be taking on a House Challenge, noticing nature, making sure we get up and move around between work commitments, embrace the outdoors everyday (even in the rain), complete the Keep Fit tasks… the opportunities are endless.
We have the responsibility to be the best version of ourselves that we can be and that starts with motivation from within, supported and encouraged by those around us.
What can you achieve? How are you going to do it?
Give it a go – be your own inspiration and that will support others in itself.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
