inspiration…

Well hello there world… it’s been awhile…I’ve missed you.

Life has been quite full these days and while that is partially why it’s been so long since I’ve written, I also realized I have been feeling slightly less inspired.  I think sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in the “to do’s” of life, and things that were once creative outlets, or inspiring activities can become just another thing to cross off the list.  Now that isn’t very inspiring!

Inspiration is defined as the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.  Or at least, that’s the version that I liked best from google.

People can be inspired by all kinds of different things, whether its the sound of waves crashing on the shore, an invigorating run, waking up to the sun shining after a rain, a good conversation with a friend, or a simply the perfect cup of coffee.

So where did my inspiration go? No where really…I think I just didn’t notice it because I let things get in the way. The key to inspiration, I think, is letting it happen.  When you’re talking with that friend, be there.  When you’re sipping that delicious cup of coffee, be there.  When you’re out riding the waves, be there.  Don’t let the things you have to do or what comes next get in the way of the moment you are in.

I hope you can allow space to feel your inspiration, whatever that may mean for you!
