What is Inspiration?
Something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create : a force or influence that inspires someone.
As the meaning of the word implies inspiration can come from anywhere. There are so many things that inspire me; songs, dreams, nightmares, poems, illustrations, people, animals . . . I’ve even been inspired by a tree. Check out my short story A Cursed Tree 😉
I decided that today I would post quotes that inspire and I hope they do encourage and motivate you. ❤
“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
~Francis of Assisi
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.”
“Your personal life, your professional life, and your creative life are all intertwined. I went through a few very difficult years where I felt like a failure. But it was actually really important for me to go through that. Struggle, for me, is the most inspirational thing in the world at the end of the day – as long as you treat it that way.”
“Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.”
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”
