One of the toughest and most personal questions to be asked is what inspires you, however it’s a very important topic to ponder on as it allows for one to self-reflect and find what truly does inspire them. The question allows for one to have self-growth and should be something one should think about often as inspiration changes on a daily basis. The Idea of “inspiration” is a hard thing to comprehend. Something that one person may not have noticed, is the most inspiring thing in the world to another. So the question then becomes: Inspiring in what way? What does it inspire them to do? To Say? To Think? To Create? To Imagine? I personally find myself inspired by what others are inspired by, as that opens doors for me to take their inspirations combined with mine to create my dreams, aspirations and goals. Inspiration is a curious idea and the amount of influences can affect the nature and creativity of people in countless ways. To pinpoint true inspiration can be difficult, but it is a challenge that we all should take on. This then allows for us to be that inspiration to others!
So what TRULY inspires me? First and foremost, My two boys! Just watching them laugh and enjoy the simple things in life, inspires to do the same. Also the courage and conviction of others inspires me to stay true to myself and my beliefs. It’s important to stand up, speak up, be BOLD and not afraid of judgement. We all have our personal story of struggles and challenges, why not use it to help inspire others around us. You never know you could be that light at the end of the tunnel they were looking for. In addition, fashion is another outlet of inspiration for me. Watching and walking in fashion runway shows inspires me to creatively write and feel what the designer was inspired by. Every designer that I have walked for and/or watched inspired me to think outside the box when it comes to making my own fashion statements. It’s ok to be different and we all have the right to awesome fashion even if it’s not the new trend. I always say don’t follow the trend, inspire then next!
Finding inspiration can be difficult, but it should be done on daily basis. My best suggestion to find your inspiration for the day or life goals: Stop, go outside, look around, go for a walk, take notice of family, friends and strangers around you. Explore their courage and creativity to find your own. Your inspiration might be inches away, but don’t’ be afraid to feed your curiosity and explore deeper as inspiration can be found at any time of the day.
