Day 59: Inspiration

This is Day 59 of the Positive 100, a countdown to Rare Disease Day 2014 and an exercise in being positive despite it all.

Creative folks are familiar with inspiration’s fickle nature. How it chooses to come and visit whenever it wants. I think they are dead wrong.

I think we choose to be inspired. Or, at least, we choose to look for inspiration.

Inspiration lights up your life.

Inspiration comes in many forms. People inspire. Nature inspires. Life inspires. Music can help you find the painting in a canvas. A flower can lead to a dress. People can show us what we need to find within ourselves.

Inspiration is a skill you need to practice. You need to practice hearing a painting in a concerto or capturing the light as it dances across the floor. If you are listening for it, you can hear the music on the wind. Every moment is filled with inspiration, you just have to be ready to find it.

Where do you find inspiration? Share your answer on social media with the hashtag #100positive days on TwitterInstagram and Google+
