Someone asked me this question recently, and it made me wonder.
Wonder where my inspiration comes from?
Wonder if I will eventually run out of ideas?
Wonder if my readers truly like what I write?
Wonder if my readers would stick around if I ever decided to write about something new?
Wonder why am I still writing when some days it’s hard to juggle a blog with a full time job?
After a moment of wondering, I realised a couple of things…
The thing is, it has all been written before – but not in my style, in my voice, my way.
I find inspiration to write in what I see, what I encounter and how I feel about these experiences.
I am inspired by many, many things…
💛 a beautiful dress 💛 a rainbow 💛 an evening cuddling on the sofa 💛 a story 💛 a beautiful picture 💛 a walk 💛 a conversation 💛 laughter 💛 a kind gesture 💛 smiles 💛 beautifully wrapped gifts 💛 someone else’s blog 💛 a quote 💛 a thought provoking article 💛 meditation 💛 reflection time 💛 exercise 💛 my children 💛 the children I work with 💛 people who get up every morning and face the world 💛 kindness 💛
The thing is, I enjoy writing and need to find ways to continually be inspired.
Take stock. Relish the moment.
Consume the beauty.
Let it sink and settle deep in your soul.
Find inspiration in all things.
Better still – how about you be the inspiration?
Live your life, your way.
Show up, tell your story.
Be present. Be aware. Be there.
What inspires you to write? Why do you write? How do you choose what you write about?
