Lost and Found

Maybe the reason I’ve had trouble finding my Inspiration’s hiding spot is because there is no hiding spot to find.

Inspiration doesn’t stay in one spot but rather spreads, moves, changes. It can’t possibly hide because it’s anywhere and everywhere.

Sometimes when I’m feeling clouded I forget that my inspiration is wherever I want it to be.

Wherever you look… if you want it to be there, Inspiration will be there.

It will be stirred into your breakfast.


It will be blended into your spinach smoothie.


It will be rolled into your Tofu Burgers.


(A must try! I didn’t make the monster sandwich shown in the original – though it does look kind of amazing – but I got nine decent sized burgers out of this recipe!)



It will be in your flowers.


It will be in your family.


(She never stops sweeping… even outside!)


It will be in your front yard while you sip on your iced coffee smoothie in the evening sunlight.


It will be in your backyard… right beneath your feet.


And most importantly of all…

Your Inspiration will be within YOU.

I’m really going to work on seeing the inspiration that lies everywhere, in all of the little bits of everyday life. No more losing sight of it. It’s always there, as long as you’re willing to see it, be open to it, and take responsibility for it.

Today I’m willing. Tomorrow too.

Enjoy the day and all of its little bits and pieces :)

  8. Kristie!!

    Where do you live? When I was in Arizona I didn’t see the Miracle Noodles at Whole Foods but I did find Shirataki Noodles which would be perfect too! You HAVE to be able to get the Miracle Noodles somewhere though. They’re the BEST!

  9. Hey Kristie,

    I have been reading your blog for a little while now, and thought I should leave you a comment, instead of just stalking!!! :)
    You are such an inspiration and because of you I decided to start my own healthy journey. Thank you. I love all your stories – you are truly gorgeous. xx
