Finding Inspiration Everyday

finding inspiration

When I discover who I am, I’ll be free. – Ralph Ellison

Inspiration can be found at the oddest times and in the strangest places. It doesn’t require privilege or even luck, finding inspiration is a choice when we take the time to look for it and then receive it.

Inspiration is a motivator to keep moving forward during times when we feel stuck or defeated. It provides a spark to ignite our creative fires so we can approach a problem or an opportunity in a new way. Inspiration is the fuel we put into our tanks when the needle is hovering on empty.
