Inspiration for the Spirit is all about love—not only romantic love; but also love for our fellow man; love for life and its many wonders; and, most importantly, the love of self that comes when you are truly content with the person you are.

angelInner peace is the key to happiness.

When we are at peace with ourselves, love and happiness radiate from within and touch every phase of our lives. We have better relationships, more successful careers, greater satisfaction and overall pleasure, and are able to cope more easily with the wicked curves life sometimes throws.

We all know about those wicked curves. They are the detours—the disappointments, drama, and heartache—that knock us down, bring us to our knees, and sometimes keep us there, praying for courage and guidance.

It is oftentimes during our darkest moments that we reach out for inspiration to help see us through.

“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp; but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” —Nathanial Hawthorne
