On Being Inspired

This is the season she will make beautiful things. Not perfect things but honest things that speak to who she is and who she’s called to be.
— Morgan Harper Nichola

The past couple of weeks have been like lightning bolts of inspiration and motivation for me. I’ve constantly been finding the beauty and intrigue in everything around me and that’s something that is so powerful as a creative. But where did it come from? Why am I able to quickly find inspiration now but other times are like talking to a wall?

Inspiration and being inspired is a tricky thing in this world. You can’t force it to happen and you can’t force it to stay. You have to harness it while it’s here and accept the times when it’s not.

It'd be amazing to have the answers and know what causes these beautiful times in my life but maybe the mystery of it all is what makes it that special. You never know when it’s going to return to you but when it finally does, you feel like you can conquer anything + everything.
