What is this blog about?

There is no such thing as an expert on the topic of Life. We all have had our battles, our suffering, and our questions. Despite the uniqueness of our personal obstacles, we have endured them. We have endured them well enough to advise those behind us as to how to do the same. I have done the research on your behalf regarding the multitude of reasons why wisdom exists. My mission is to utilize the voices of the world's greatest thinkers and heroes to compose a guideline of life's wisdom so that you don't have to experience those trials alone.

If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @JoeSielski or email me at JJSielskiJr@comcast.net

(Please title your email with the word "Wisdom" so I know it will be for this blog.)

I will do my best to try and answer every question as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thanks.

A Moment to Be Inspired

Earlier, I was asked to list what inspires me.  For some reason, in that moment I almost drew a blank.  It's funny how thoughts flow, or don't flow, when you're put on the spot.  Having had some time to rest on it, I wanted to write about the nature of Inspiration. 

Inspiration is the ability to find the strength within yourself.  Most times, we rely or expect others to It's there.  It's always been there.  Whatever you want to call it, you have it.   Literally and figuratively, it's there.  You have the joy.  You have love.  You have the determination. You have the generosity.   But the things in life can become a mammoth distraction.  This is why we must breathe the life back into our hearts and regenerate that inspiration.  

When others inspire us, they help us to channel a direct route into our core selves.  In my experience of reading and writing, Randy Pausch succinctly hit the nail on the head regarding inspiration. 
If you can, please take a moment to be inspired.

Inspiration can take on many forms. There are so many wondrous reasons to feel inspired.  We all have different lives and different stories, and it's from this variety that inspiration can be shared.

So whether it's for fitness or faith, we all need a little push from time to time. 
Be open to inspiration.  Be open to be inspired.  Maybe your openness will inspire the next person. 
That's just how it works.
