What's Your Inspiration?

I have really been  soul-searching lately to discover what truly inspires me.  It is only when I am inspired that I am fully engaged; of course, this engagement, immersion (if you will) occupies my mind at a level that food is no longer my go-to for comfort or diversion from my problems. So, I want to know what you are inspired by…

I am inspired by nature and its beauty.

I am inspired by a leaf blowing in the wind.  where will it land and just how far will the wind take it.

I have been lately inspired by the snow flakes falling from the sky. Each one different and unique just like each and every one of us. I am inspired by a reflection in a window on water or in a mirror.

I am inspired by the people that have time to volunteer. I hope to volunteer more this year

I am inspired by my family… both biological and “created.” I love my family dont get me wrong but the chosen family…they make me want to be a better me. The encourage me and believe in me…I am truly blessed

Being I am a photographer faces inspire me. There expressions, there sizes. old young, wrinkly whatever…With that there are shapes and lines and tones and well I am sure you get the point.

I also am inspired by Children, I dont have any but I love them all..How they learn how they think how they process things. I cant understand how anyone could ever hurt a child on purpose but that is a whole other topic :0(

I am inspired by this site. To be able to share and and read and bond with other people of like minds.  I am proud to call you my friends

Music is a big inspiration to me as well…For lots of different reasons. more I think because it has helped me heal past wounds.  And to help keep me motivated sometimes when I am at my last straw.

I am inspired by a brand-new blank notebook or journal.  The possibilities are endless when “the rest is still unwritten” or not drawn, doodled, etc

I am inspired by color.  I love tones, shades, tints, you name it.  I love it in clothes, jewelry, in street graffiti, food, advertisements - you get the picture.

So what inspires you?
