The thought of making art is hard to resist. It is a lot of work, and it requires a lot of space. But the rewards are worth it.
The reward? Inspiration.
Inspiration is a state of mind. It is a state of being. Inspiration is the gift of the human spirit. For me, it comes from the feeling of being inspired to create. Inspiration is a gift that has to be earned. It is a gift that you can’t buy.
The difference between an inspiration and an inspiration is that inspiration is a state of being, while inspiration is a state of mind. This leads us to an analogy for inspiration. An inspiration is a gift that you can buy, while inspiration is a gift that you can choose. Inspiration can come from the things around you, like a sunset or a song or a smell. But inspiration is a gift that you can chose to receive.
We all should be thanking inspiration for the gifts that we have in our lives. But we should also be thanking inspiration for the opportunities and the opportunities that we don’t have. In other words, you need inspiration to be alive and breathing. A bad day, a bad mood, or being on a bad streak doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to stop being who you are and start doing something new. That’s not what you need, that’s an excuse for you to be a better person.
Inspiration that you can choose to receive. There are so many inspiring quotes that you can choose to receive, that when we are told to be better, we can be better, in our own way. Inspiration can be the push back, the encouragement, the inspiration, the reminders that we are worth the time, the recognition that we matter, and the motivation to do something about it.
Inspiration can be found in all kinds of places. Like a favorite book, a favorite picture, a favorite quote, a favorite quote. But it can also be found in your own words. I find inspiration in the things that I write about, and I have to remind myself to keep writing. I don’t know about you, but if I have a book or piece that I’m working on that I think will be good, then I find myself going back and rewriting it.
I do the same thing. I think I find inspiration in the piece that Im writing. Or better yet, in the words that Im writing.
Some of the best times for me are when I take the time to think of ideas for my pieces. While I can take inspiration in the things that I do, its much harder to find the words that will bring it to life.
