Any day you see a whale, eat breakfast on the beach and have a massage is undeniably a great day. Having recently experienced a day just like that while on vacation, I was reminded of how much inspiration can flow from new experiences and a clear mind.
Life’s daily obligations have a way of sweeping us away. So important is time to ourselves doing what we enjoy, or simply nothing at all. Before I left on a recent trip, I was struggling for creative inspiration. Shortly after a few days of rest, armed with a journal and camera, I soon found the creative juices flowing.
Inspiration comes in different forms for everyone; we just have to be true to what speaks to us. I have always felt invigorated by being exposed to new customs and cultures. I am excited by the unknown inextricably linked to a place I am discovering for the first time. The combination of learning, challenge and uncertainty converge perfectly to give me the excitement from which my creative inspiration derives.
Understandably this is not for everyone. It is important to spend time in that place and space that speaks to you. So, what does your inspiration look like?
