Curiosity Driven Life

Curiosity Driven Life

posted in: Inspiration | 6

Its almost overwhelming really, the amount of sources of inspiration we have at our disposal currently.  Be it in the form of pictures on Tumblr & Pinterest, TED-EX speeches, music, books, quotes, blogs, friends, art or even the lives of total strangers. And I love it. In fact I need it, I need that little extra nudge sometimes, some words of wisdom when I’m feeling blue or an upbeat song to get me out of bed in the morning. And as a (self professed) inspiration junkie, I love sharing what I find so that hopefully it’ll do some good to others as it does for me. My “dream” for The Twenties Guide, is for it to become a daily source of inspiration to live your life to the fullest. Now we’re not there yet, but you know what they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day.


So for today’s post I’d like to share the link to a video that was placed on my FB wall the other day (Thank you so much Krista) that gave me a lump in my throat because I could totally relate. I love Elizabeth Gilbert (who is the author of Eat Pray Love), she is so well spoken, honest and funny while being wise and this speech was really something I needed to hear. She talks about passion, and what to do when you’re one of those people who does not have exactly figured out what they want from life since the age of 5 and who, very much like me, have so many things they’re interested in they feel like they can never get it right. Give it a listen:

From now on I’d like to share more little posts with bits of inspiration that have strung a chord with me. I hope you’ll enjoy it, and share it along as well. Let me know what you think, or if you have any recommendations for me, I’d love to check it out!

    I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes only a small piece of inspiration can double your motivation. I have to admit I didn’t like Eat Pray Love (both book and movie), but I’ll give the vid a chance! Thanks for the tip!

      I really didn’t like the movie either but I have to say I liked the book more! Especially the Italy part! Let me know if you liked the speech Charelle! Xx

    That speech was so inspiring! I’ve always bounced around to so many things throughout my life and I’m only 25. Sometimes I feel guilty for it, and I still have no idea what I’m doing. I’m going to school to be a Vet, which takes like a long time…and other than that I’ve felt pretty bad about myself. This really helped me understand the importance of trying new things and creating new and fresh opportunities in your life by exploring.
