Finding Your Spark: Four Places to Look First
Most people find a spark in one of four categories.
Curiosity is driven by the questions of who, what, when, where, why and how. If you follow one of these threads, you will probably discover something you didn’t know before. Even if the discovery is small, there is joy and satisfaction in that.

Looking back on my life experiences with the benefit of hindsight, I know that the times I felt most alive have been during highly creative periods.
A lack of creativity in life often coincides with periods of becoming stagnant, bored and critical of work and self-worth.
A connection can be created by something as simple as smiling at someone in line at the store or in the elevator. Or listening to a loved one recount the events of their lunchtime drama.
Giving people your time and/or attention spreads positivity and creates connection.
It’s so easy to go through life in proximity to others without forging deeper connections.
Ignite your spark by being more intentional about creating time and space for connecting with others.
It’s easy to think that helping each other requires grand gestures, it really doesn’t. It’s often small gestures like washing the dishes for your parents, or dropping a friend’s child off at basketball practice, or helping your partner put away groceries that make the biggest impact. On others and ourselves.
