Sips of Jen and Tonic

bc425f09027fd13912ac10b6728e4ea3I don’t typically write serious subject matter on this blog, but a few months ago I wrote about my desire to seek therapy for a myriad of issues I’ve faced for years. A woman of my word, I began going almost immediately.

I don’t like talking to friends or family members about my problems so the idea of talking to a stranger about my innermost thoughts really put me off. Luckily, I found someone totally aces on the first try, and she has taught me some very valuable things in our time together so far.

How you feel about yourself is not a democracy.

I would never have described myself as a “people pleaser” until I started seeing her. Now I can’t believe I never saw it before. In every facet of my life I am living for someone else: at work, in relationships, with my family, among friends. No…

What is your source of Inspiration?

There are endless sources of inspiration. You just have to keep your eyes open. But these four might be the most prominent/significant:


1. Nature/The Universe

Its so varied, vast and beautiful. And we are all a part of it. I’m inspired by how interconnected I am to all of IT.

2. My own potential

Like Johnny Bosche mentioned, we are fraught with imperfections, but we have potential to be better. Its improbable that I reach this ideal version of myself, but knowing (or thinking?) that I can be great, however illusory that may be, inspires me to try. And by doing so we can come close.

3. Human potential

Although sometimes it feels like the world is going to shits

..I know it could be better, actually, I’m SURE it could be MUCH better. We are not like the rest of the matter in the Universe. We are thinking, feeling, conscious matter. We may seem very dumb at times, but we have survived despite many odds and roadblocks along our history. We can be very very clever and sometimes even good. I have hope in humanity and I am inspired by what humanity could achieve.

We could explore the stars, far away galaxies, the universe and maybe even time. I’m flabbergasted by our potential, but more importantly, inspired to be part of a push(however minuscule) in the right direction. 

4. The Unknown

Already mentioned by Bernardt Vogel, but still one of the most, if not the most, powerful sources of inspiration: That which I have yet to even imagine. The idea in and of itself is just…thrilling.

Pictures of her are an inspiration, and a constant reminder of our link to Earth and its inhabitants.
