InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

March 28, 2024

The focus for today is:

I am not just a passive recipient of life's offerings
but an active participant in my fate.

Today's inspiration was written by Robert Jennings,

This is a call to action for each of us. It's a call to rethink our lives, question what we've taken for granted, and dive back into the driver's seat we might've unknowingly vacated.

This is not just suggesting we take control; it's urging us to regain it, reestablishing ourselves as the architects of our lives.

It invites us to a higher plane of consciousness, where we're not just passive recipients of life's offerings but active participants in our fate.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Beyond the Hype: Making Mindfulness Stick in Daily Life
     Written by Robert Jennings,

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of being an active participant in your fate (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
Unfortunately, our society encourages us to be passive... We watch TV, YouTube videos, reality shows, live feeds, and we think we are powerless to create change... We watch others live their lives, while we sit and neglect ours. Yet our life is ours only. It is ours to participate in and to create the as we desire. It's time for us to get up, stand up, and live our life to the fullest.

Our focus for today: I am not just a passive recipient of life's offerings, but an active participant in my fate.
