Who or What Inspires You?

So here is the age old question, What Inspires You? Now, I feel like I should say that there is no right or wrong answer here! This is left up to each individual person to decide, and it will vary significantly from person to person. change

First lets delve into what it means to be inspired, the definition for the word inspire is to make (someone) want to do something : to give (someone) an idea about what to do or create. It can also mean to cause (something) to happen or be created; or to cause someone to have (a feeling or emotion).

So who or what inspires you?  It can something as simple as nature, your kids, music, love, or a multitude of other things. For me, it is the sounds of nature. The chirping of birds, the sound of a thunderstorm, the sound of rain falling are all very near and dear to me. I absolutely love it and this is when my creative juices flow the best. Here is an example from Youtube. I especially like to listen to this music while I am writing or quilting. It is a feeling of being free and one with nature.

So you say, how do I find what is inspirational to me? Well, you just keep trying different things. Like previously stated, there is no right or wrong way to be or get inspired. It is totally different for each person, so just keep trying different things/methods until you find one that helps you do whatever it is you want to do. This can simply be listening to specific kind of music, or smelling a certain smell(like lavender), or being outside. Keep trying new things! Hopefully you will know of at least a few ideas to try. If not, a simple Google Search will offer many suggestions.

So, now you’ve found something that inspires you? Now what? You hop to whatever needs to be done. I use my music to motivate my mind, most of  the time it works very well. So, anytime I need or want to do some writing or something else that is important; I listen to my nature sounds. I have many downloaded on my phone. This is a regular occurrence for me. These are available through many different sources such as Amazon Prime Music, Youtube, Pandora, and many other sites.

Pinterest also has a ton of pictures that have inspirational quotes. I have one above my desk that says, “You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way.” I printed it out and hung it up because this quote hits me right in the heart. No matter the circumstance, you are far too smart to let yourself be the only thing standing in your own way.

So, tell me. What inspires you?

It takes alot to find that one special something, that one thing thatjust makes you want to do better and change the world. Even if it is just one small step in the bigger picture, it’s still a step in the right direction. Right? Thanks for reading!
