It’s okay to have a need to find inspiration. We all need time to observe, think, listen. Inspiration finds us when we are in tune with our immediate surroundings. We get an amazing idea–and jump to make it happen. Thinking twice will sometimes stunt the growth of inspiration. Of course it makes sense to think rationally, but listening to our inner buzz is usually on track. That is… if you decide to believe in it, and go for the ride. The ride that you never expected.
“My projects are the high joy of freedom.”
I’m here to tell you that you do not need to doubt yourself. And you may have heard this before, but it all comes from within you first. Meaning, you control your life. Nothing else controls it. It’s you.
Life does not need to be tough, a test, or a bore. It’s quite amazing and effortless when you are in a flow. To me, being in creative flow is where everything happens, and I am happy to share some thoughts with you. I’ll be offering the next number of blog posts to help you boost your inner self. If you have been waiting for a while to be great, please let yourself know that you are—right now. As you are.
You have it in you. Do not let anyone make you believe otherwise. Look around for inspiration. I used to love it in art school—when the professor would give a slide talk and show us paintings and drawings from artists in the past. It was so invigorating. It lit me up inside. After sitting in the dark and viewing the work for about a half hour, I was wound up and ready to get back to painting. I was inspired. It’s not like that outside of school though. It can be one thing after another, it seems sometimes, that’s trying to grab your attention. Inspiration can be hard to come by when you’re not looking for it. So, start making yourself begin to look around—like, really look! Become inspired again. Do not let life and earning money, and the insane news get you jaded.
Re-awaken your inspired mind. Do it daily. Make yourself! It works. This is your life.
