Hi! I was wondering where you find inspiration for life, stories, and your blog? I’ve been struggling with finding inspiration.
I often find inspiration in the worst of times. It’s that time between being asleep and being awake. For some reason that is when my mind seems to be the most clear from everyday life and chores, and my brain comes up with the best ideas, whether it’s for a story or for a post, or just something I should research. Of course, I’m too tired to get up and actually do any work right then and there, or I have to be careful not to wake my sleeping partner…so I often just write it in the notebook I keep on my bedside table.
I find inspiration in quite moments, so I try to take as many as I can. If the weather is right, I like to lay out at the park. Everything is much simpler and I can clear my mind and just spark inspiration out of what I see and feel around me. The warmth I feel from the sun on my skin, or the leaves gracefully blowing from their place on the trees…
I often times get inspiration from the music I am listening to. I will shuffle through my playlists until something pulls me in, and can find myself replaying the same song over and over while I write.
I also find inspiration in the books that I read or through other bloggers. I find the community of readers, writers, and bloggers to be undoubtedly uplifting and supportive and it’s with that support that I find myself inspired to work harder and improve myself and my work.
Where do you all find inspiration? I’d love to hear from you.
