Finding Inspiration When you Need it…


Some days I wake up feeling inspired. I am ready to take on the day, I have a new set of goals and nothing will stop me from smashing them. Other days, I wake up lacking this. Finding inspiration when you’re not in the right frame of mind to do so can be difficult.

Take Some Time Out

The most productive thing I have learnt when I am feeling uninspired is to just stop. We all lead busy lives, with work to go to, gym sessions to complete, TV shows to watch and friends to meet. Sometimes, it can be overwhelming to keep on top of it all.

I have recently found that the best way to deal with these feelings is to take some time out. Take time for yourself to assess your goals. Spend time doing the things you really love. Start putting yourself first. Inspiration will come when you are happy and relaxed.

Don’t Chase Something you Don’t Want

I believe we can all be guilty of chasing goals we don’t really want to achieve. Just because someone else is doing something does not mean you have to do it too.

We are all on our own paths and we really should be doing what we want to do. Ask yourself – “What do I want? Why do I want that? How will I achieve that?” Follow what you actually want to do, not what other people want you to do.

If you are continually struggling with something, start reassessing why you are doing it. You will find it is either because you don’t really want to do it, or you are going about it in the wrong way.

A Change in Direction for Inspiration

Changing your focus and shifting your mindset may be enough for you. Finding inspiration happens in different ways for all of us. Find what works best for you.

Once you have decided what it is you actually want to do, you will probably be very motivated to do so. People who know me know that I am very tenacious, and if I have my mind set on something, I will do all I can to achieve it. I am not a giver upper, nor should you be.

I really believe we all have a drive within us to achieve the things we truly want to do. Of course, you will not wake up everyday feeling inspired. However, I encourage you to recognise this feeling and start asking yourself why you feel this way.

I hope you all fuel your own inspiration. There really is no time like the present and if you want something, I believe you will smash it! I don’t believe in luck, but I do believe hard work pays off – so if you want to achieve a goal, put your mind to it and just get it done!

Our Thoughts Become Our Realities

Have you ever heard of the law of attraction? It is simply the idea that explains how our lives are created through one thing; our thoughts.

The Power of the Mind

Many of us do not realise how powerful our minds are. We have thousands, perhaps even millions of thoughts that cross through our minds each day. Many of these are so small, we think of them as insignificant.

The truth is, everything we think about becomes our reality. We are creating our own lives through our thoughts and the way we think.

This can be an overwhelming concept to grasp, as we also have negative thoughts which create negative outcomes.

Positivity and Thoughts

A positive thought vibrates at a high energy level and is so extremely powerful. If you think about the way your mind can talk you into doing something, that is an example of this positive though process.

However, negative thoughts can easily spiral out of control. Like positive ones, we can talk ourselves out of something due to an overload of negative thoughts.

We can easily become stuck in a negative thought pattern which will become visible in our reality.

We Can Make the Change

Naturally, some days we will wake up and feel low. Understanding that we can control how long we feel this way for is a very powerful tool to grasp.

Always accept how you feel, listen to what your body is telling you and let it do what it wishes. Sometimes we require silence, stillness and rest. Other days, we will wake up feeling energised and radiant. 

We are able to shift these thought patterns whenever we feel ready. After feeling low, we can shift our mindset into a more energised one and then we will feel lifted and light. If we continue allowing our mind to feel low and perhaps negative, we will continue to feel this way in ourselves.

Once we grasp the concept that we can actively make that shift, we understand that we are able to live our lives to their full potential and listen to the paths that have been set out for us!

Happiness is a Way of Life

You may have heard the saying “happiness is not a destination, it’s a journey”, and as corny as this may sound, it is definitely true.


Stop Waiting for Happiness

If you spend your life thinking “I will be happy when…” then trust me, you will never be happy. Happiness comes from within, therefore, your mindset will have a major impact on the way you feel.

In a time where we live our lives online, many of us may find ourselves comparing our looks and lives to others. Remember that Instagram shows the fun parts, the things people want you to see. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, if you know me, you will know I love sharing photos.

However, if we keep this attitude of comparisons, we will also struggle to feel happy. It is actually detrimental to our mental health.

The Best Time is NOW

If you really start embracing the present moment, you will be really living! Now is the time you can start something new, break an old habit and really make a change.

Yes, you may plan ahead and be organised, however, arranging to do something ‘tomorrow’ will be actually done in the present moment.

A saying my Grandad ingrained into me, which at a young age, I struggled to understand;

“Today is tomorrow, yesterday.”

If you think about it, then there is nothing untrue about that quote. It goes to show how time passes.

Be Happy and Be You

Feel your happiness. Find your happiness. The way you think impacts the way you feel.

Of course, there are things and people that can make you happy. But, happiness is a feeling and it is sourced from your own head. Keep on doing the things which add to your happiness. Spending time with positive people will also remind you to think happy thoughts.

Thank you so much for reading, as always!

Staying True to Yourself

Stay True to Yourself - Eloise Burns

Hello all. Staying true to who you are is such an important thing to remember as you go about your everyday life. It is easy to get swept up by the wash of social media and people living through screens.

You are Good Enough

Self worth is absolutely key. The way you value yourself is what ultimately affects how you feel. Filling yourself with loving and kind words are going to lift your spirits. Believe you are good enough. If somebody doesn’t like you for who you are, then you don’t need them in your life.

I am a preacher of understanding and embracing what you have. Knowing that you are this wonderful being should be enough to get you out of bed every morning. You are capable of great things, I believe in you. Knowledge is power.

Letting Love Be

The power of love can often be undermined. Love is more powerful than we can probably ever believe or interpret and letting it stand for what it is is a great way to attract more love.

If you want to love, let yourself love. Likewise, if someone loves you, let them love you and return that love.

Understanding your own potential should allow you to let people love you for who you are.

Never Change for Anyone, Be True

Staying true to yourself is the number one rule for living a happy and loyal life. Never change your ways for someone, just be who you are.

Of course, in certain circumstances, there is an importance in adapting your language or attitude. Knowing when to use this is a great skill. For example, at work you would talk to colleagues or clients in a more formal way than that used amongst friends.

This is not however, changing yourself to please someone.

If you take just one thing away from this post today, please let it be that you can’t please everyone. So don’t waste your energy on someone who is not worth your time. Life is precious and if you spend each day trying to make everyone happy, you will forget about the most important thing in your life – you. Continue putting people first at times and spreading love, however, be wise.

Thank you for reading. Please share your thoughts with me, I love to hear them.
