The best! <3
Nature in all its splendor.
We can always learn from nature. That’s why we call it Mother Nature 🙂
When writing blog posts: life experiences, books, interviews, Youtube videos, my role models, and the love of writing, journaling, and gratitude.
So almost everything can inspire you 🙂
My main source of inspiration is; Google Search, Instagram, Pintrest, and Facebook. Why? Utilizing social media, you get first hand access to what is trending and you can adapt to the changes that is on the internet. Since technology is advancing everyday, every week, every month, and every year. It will be a wise choice to follow up with access that we have for information.
Yes! And we’re always up to date with the latest information.
Sharing with other people!! advice!!
Other people can always be sources of inspiration! 😀
Books. Whenever I need inspiration, I read or listen to an audio book.
There is so much power in books because it lets us tap into other people’s wisdom! That’s always inspiring!
My Cavachon, Quetzal – and my dreams.
Suffering/heart break. I seem to be able to write more or better when I’m going through something.
What’s the most inspiring dream you had lately?
Randomness, I guess. Ie. Keep plugging away until something random happens and I get a break through
Interesting. So how often do you get breaks through?
Passion to overcome.
To overcome what?
Life….to be able to survive each day.
Life, strangers on the street, my own experiences
If you think about the last time you got inspired by stranger on the streets, what was that about?
A customer at work recently told me of how her dear friend had just passed away; somehow, she was keeping it together remarkably and I had chills the entire time she was sharing her story. I haven’t forgotten her since.
Do you have an inspiring playlist? 🙂
Nothing specific. The right song finds me at the right time.
Myself and my personal real life.. my thoughts tend to just on and on and on.. it can be enlightening and entertaining to just follow along for the ride, see where I end I up in my mind… lol. When I write, I write from experience. When I speak, I speak from the seat of my heart. What I see is both the same and not as everyone else.
But it is love and hope that (not inspires, but) motivates me to not lay down and close my eyes. It is my shared life that prevents me from ending my own existence.
I inspire myself enough to attempt to leave a marker in history of my existence. Other people inspire me to continue to strive onwards, continue to dream, other people remind me I’m here for a reason.
You are here for a reason! We all are! But that reason alone isn’t enough. We need to work so we can fulfill our destiny 🙂
What genre inspires you the most?
Business for business. Such as Rich Dad Poor Dad (Currently Reading the Little Big Things). I also enjoy reading aggravated people such as Carl Hagan The Demon Haunted World. Anything that teaches, inspires, motivates or challenges my intellect and perspective.
I get inspired by the beauty around me – nature mostly
That’s great! I’m glad if you have the nature close to you! 🙂
People who are saying to me: Thank you! 😊
Oh yes! Seeing kindness in the world is a great way to pump the inspiration levels up!
Yes it’s true 😊
Subconscious “farts” …. that’s what I call them fondly 😊😂🤣
In that case, I hope they fart a lot :)))
Life – from real to fiction. Family, friends, every day people, conversations, interactions, to books, music, magazines
Nice! What’s the strangest situation which inspired you?
The spectre of death
What about the spectre of death inspire you the most?
Good question. I don’t think there is any one main source of inspiration for me. My inspiration comes from everywhere. It may be a song, album, or specific lyric. It might come from something that someone says. It could simply be from an observation made about my surroundings.
The real question (at least for me) is, “How do you recognize inspiration and use it in your work?”
Does it ever happen to you to not be able to use your inspiration in your work?
From time to time. But it just means that I haven’t found a place for it yet. But I write everything down so I’ll have it for later.
How I feel about things. If I’m ever lacking inspiration, I stop and catalogue my feelings, it’s amazing how many thoughts and feelings one often doesn’t realise they have until they stop to follow their train of thoughts and feelings. I agree with Hume when he says that the passions are the source of our wisdom.
Very true! We sometimes listen to so many sources, but ourselves…
I get my inspiration from my interactions with others. They are my conversations with them. If I were alone, I’d have nothing to say.
You’re totally right! Inspiration is everywhere, especially in us, the creatures that have endless imagination.
My heart… 🙂
The most powerful inspiration… 🙂
