(from an Evernote page, one of Those)
There are two kinds of inspiration. One is the kind of inspiration that makes you work hard, accomplish something, move forward, do well, stick to new or better or life-changing habits, or make a difference in your life and/or someone else's. When I am inspired in this manner, I get to put a check mark next to everything in my To Do list, having done each item at a perfect pace, within the allocated time, and with an excellent output. When I am inspired in this manner, it is easier for me to absorb information, control my mind and my mood, and refrain from taking untimely breaks or procrastinating. My eyes are big and bright, and I can easily hear a prompt from the Universe to do or start or change something just in time for something bigger. When I am functioning and living in this kind of inspiration, I am exhausted at the end of the day, but deeply satisfied and eager to rest just as I am eager to wake up the next morning to accomplish even more things and continue to do better in anything I wish to do.
