Inspiration

inspiration
ɪnspɪˈreɪʃ(ə)n/
noun
  1. 1.
    the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.




What inspires you?  What pushes and urges you to be creative? 

Being our true selves; wanting to share and communicate and connect with others.  To be fully part of the world.  

"As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."  Nelson Mandela

  1. What a great word for I!! And wonderful inspirational pics and quotes. I get inspired by weird things--I never know what's going to work. Music is a great inspiration almost all the time, though. I like good old classic American rock and roll and Celtic music--especially Scottish.

    1. Music is always a great one. Can transport you to another place in your mind and way of thinking about things. Thanks for your lovely comments too :-)

  2. Oh, now you're making me THINK. I suppose I'm most creative when there is an event -- for example, my annual Christmas Eve party inspires me to think of a new theme each year which inspires me to plan decorations and food around the theme. My daughters' weddings inspired me to be creative carrying out their visions.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. Bonjour!

    1. Lovely examples. An event can help channel the creativity can't it? and even better when it's for loved ones. Thanks for stopping by :-)

  3. Excellent post, and I found the Nelson Mandela quote fitting. Life inspires me the most. As I like to say ... life is a story, might as well write it. Very much enjoyed the visit. Thank you.

  4. My creativity comes from living life as fully as I can. My family and friends, the environment, everything is a story and a story lives in every thing. The pictures on your post are inspirational as is mr Mandela's quote. Thank you

    1. Thanks Cecilia for your kind and thoughtful comments. I agree with your sources of inspiration; friends, family and our environment. We can learn so much too by looking for the story that lives in everything. Thanks for stopping by :-)

  5. I didn't find anything about cows but I certainly liked what I did find. Expression is my motivating force for being creative and words are my medium. My inspiration is both internal and external and moving through the world with eyes and ears receptive and brain reflective. Cheers Irene

    1. More cows next time maybe ;-) Glad you stopped by. A lovely way of summing up what your inspiration is. It is definitely an internal and external force, and we need to keep all our senses open for it. Thanks again :-)
