 10 Ways to Inspire Yourself

10 Ways to Inspire Yourself

Lately, I have been in and out of a funk, a rut, or whatever you want to call it. Either way, that canvas on my easel is still waiting. So I take walks, I read, I doodle in my notebook—in other words, I show up. Some days, my muse meets me and some days it does not. Today I simply want to share my list of items that help me to "inspire myself".

I remind myself that none of these things happen on their own. Put it on the calendar, write it on a post it note or on your to do list. Just make it happen. 

1. Create good health.

2. Create your personal space.

3. Enjoy solitude.

4. Continue to learn.

5. Keep a notebook.

6. Attend art events.

7. Go on Photo Walkabouts.

8. Create an inspiration board.

9. Read more.

10. Go on creativity dates.

Inspiration and work ethic – they ride right next to each other.... Not every day you’re gonna wake up and the clouds are gonna part and rays from heaven are gonna come down and you’re gonna write a song from it. Sometimes, you just get in there and just force yourself to work, and maybe something good will come out.
