How I Got Inspired (and how you can too!)

For a long time as an actress and young woman, I waited.  I waited to get chosen, I waited for approval from that important big wig, I waited to land that dream role, etc.  
I felt like I was always waiting and then chasing something that was a little out of my reach.  The struggle made me depleted, exhausted and a little grouchy. I was waiting to be fulfilled by outside circumstances.
I knew something was missing...and that something was me. So, along with Yohei, I started implementing small and daily changes like morning hikes in our nearby park. We slowly saw the seasons change, and soon began to notice the beauty taking place in our everyday lives.
We made a commitment that instead of waiting for things to happen, we were going to live in accordance with who we wanted to be and what we wanted to see in the world. 
By focusing on the beauty in our lives, I stopped waiting for good things to happen (because I realized that they were already happening!).  
And then magically, more and more beautiful things started showing up!  
I realized I didn't need approval and I didn't need to wait.  I just needed to appreciate my surroundings, and express what was already inside me.  

We created Inspired by a Moment to shine a light on the ordinary, everyday miracles of life. You don’t have to wait to enjoy your life until you gain someone else’s approval, find Mr. Right, have the perfect body, etc...

Whatever you want to have and whatever you want to be, it starts with what you choose to look at today.  You can create a life of inspiration and joy by focusing on the beauty in the present moment.  
May our art serve you to Get Inspired by a Moment!
