A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Catch a Wave


of inspiration–small and simple–sea of ideas.

Open my arms and welcome the joy of today!! How fertile is my everyday life for creating the sort of inspiration and motivation I actively seek.

Direly needed change will find a way to invite in whether I welcome it in my life or not.

Finding inspiration is less about what’s happening outside me; more about what I let in.  It definitely comes, too often, in baby waves–ones that may not pack such a punch. It really does.

It hit me as I sat down at the park today enjoying a pleasant day, hanging out with my home-school families.

I could not help but wondered why sometimes I fail to catch those sudden, unexpected inspirational waves in life–those I never know what I’ll be hit with next or when I will take?  Why do I play it safe so often?

As I ponder, it will come…sooner or later.  Will that wave ride me out to glory, pummel me over, or simply spit me out somewhere new?

I must return to small/simple roots, revisit the basics, rehash, rediscover, be excited in a new/feisty way, and ride out once again.

There are moments in my life when I wake up–from the very first moment–I feel inspired. I do not know where my latest knit comes from.

A great rush of energy, a feeling of elation, a love for life, a wonder at creation, an awe about nature, an urgency to create, discover, explore, and experiment…much like being in love, only more intensely–a ginormous state I cannot force–it turns up just ‘cuz it wants to. 😀

Today, I welcome the calmness of small waves gently rocking me…a chance to breathe, relax, refresh, re-focus, and enjoy.

I have to take advantage of the wave of inspiration–when life gives it–and ride the heck out of it.

Not knowing what surprises to follow…standing up and navigating through nature, I am prepared to catch that trough of a wave —curve deeply downward, develop, and impend towards the shore–with full excitement.  Indescribable.  In due course, I come to the end of my tide.  Afresh, I steer out to sea of inspiration isle for the next big wave.  The essence lies in appreciating what got me where I am…where I dream of living.

I am daydreaming of warmer days.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
