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!
