“Always keep your eyes open. Keep watching. Because whatever you see can inspire you.”
~Grace Coddington

The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. ~Oxford Dictionary

Can inspiration Affect your life? Definitely! When inspiration hits, that spark inside you turns into a burning flame. Inspiration gives you the courage to forget your fears and step confidently into the unknown, where dreams become reality and your “flow” is constant.
Inspiration is the prerequisite for anything good you want in life, it’s the energy that propels you. Being devoid of inspiration makes everything seem difficult and tedious because inspiration is a necessity to helping us make progress and evolve. During times of inspiration, our mind is at it’s sharpest and we’re graced with a feeling of gratitude and we become more socially confident and enthused.


How do you find this inspiration? You’ll be happy to know that it can be found almost everywhere. Having a positive outlook on life is crucial to finding inspiration but you can also be inspired by people, places, things, books and even your environment. In Greek mythology it’s believed that muses were goddesses who gave inspiration artist, influencing literature and the arts.


Whether you have found your modern day muse or not, it really doesn’t matter how you find it or it finds you incorporating inspiration into daily living brings change and creativity into an otherwise hum -drum life bringing freedom of expression to everything that you do.

      1. Since I work for a New York Museum I get to visit other New York Museums for Free so often either by myself or with my brother we will visit various museums throughout the city. One of my favorite museums is the Brooklyn Museum.

  1. God, I love this quote, Etta D. So great. My spiritual mentor John Morton has a phrase he likes to use, “Baruch Bashan”, which means the blessings already are. Your post reminds me of that.

    Lots of loving,
    ps – I just did a Forgiving Friday’s post encouraging folks to share something that inspires them to forgive! How cool is that? ❤ 🙂
