Leah, from Creative Every Day, announced the theme/challenge for September was INSPIRATION. After reading her explanation of the 2009 Challenge I thought the idea was wonderful, so I quickly signed on! This sounds like fun, I thought. I love to write. Little did I know it would become a true challenge.
Inspiration? Where do I get it? Who or what makes it happen? Do I even have it? What do I do with it?
I’ve concluded that my inspiration comes from a higher power that allows me to breath in and out daily, while family and friends allow me to experience it, learn from it and write about it.
First, a higher power gives me the inspiration to breath in and out naturally. It’s the gift of life. It is a natural thing. Without it there is no life. A friend told me once, “A flower does not consult with anyone before blooming. Even in the worst of places, they naturally follow the process of magical blooming, even in places we never see. What happens will happen naturally.”
Second, my family and friends gives me inspiration each and everyday with encouragement and support in whatever my current endeavor or challenge maybe. Richard Bach wrote, “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.”
Each morning, I’m thankful for the ability to unwrap the gift of inspiration, and share it by writing this little blog. For only in my dreams am I a “published” writer or author, and whatever happens will happen naturally, and with the help of my family and friends who inspire me daily to share my stories through writing. I thank them!
For it is them who inspire me to chase my dreams and God who gives me breath each day.
