Blogspiration 22: Genuis Is . . .

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA& Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.

We all need inspiration, though some days it seems as if the sources of inspiration may be lacking.  This, however, is not the case.  In order to find our own inner genius, we need to realize that inspiration can be found anywhere.

I agree with this definition of genius.  Being a genius doesn't mean knowing everything.  It means knowing how to look at the world around you, and being open to what it has to offer you.  Life is replete with resources that can fuel the fires of the imagination.  Look at the world with wonder.  See each day as an opportunity to experience the world anew, and take nothing for granted.  This is the fertilizer that will grow great ideas.


  1. A really great thought! I totally agree with this, opening yourself to what is around you and to new experiences can teach you so much. Love this!

    I'm a new participant in this mene and a new follower of your blog! I would love it if you would visit my post here!

  2. A true genius is a well-rounded person who is sharp in all areas.
    Like the bit about looking at the world with wonder.

  3. "Look at the world with wonder. See each day as an opportunity to experience the world anew, and take nothing for granted."

    I love this! <3
    Totally true! There is so much to view just around us. Just by looking at nature we can learn how to shape our own life, you know? A tree grows... but so do we :D


  4. "Wonder" really captures it all. If you have that, you're doing just fine in my book. ;)

  5. LG, this is a really great post and I couldn't agree more!!

  6. Oh my... wow.

    That is PERFECT.
    SO PERFECT. We take so much for granted and... *sigh*

    Do you watch Doctor Who? There's this moment in one of the recent seasons where he tells his companion (and honestly, I don't even remember who, or when) that he needs them with him because he's so OLD, and he's seen EVERYTHING, all he sees is the science of it. He needs them so he can see the wonder and the magic again.


    Happy place ♥

    1. Doctor Who is one of the best shows ever! I love it!
