What is inspiration?
As dictionary.com states,
“1. an inspiring or animating action or influence:
I cannot write poetry without inspiration.
2.something inspired, as an idea.
3.a result of inspired activity.”
Something anyone struggles with. From writing a birthday card to someone. Thinking of what to draw next or write next. What to make next. The possibilities are endless.
The problem is how to find it. The struggle is real. I feel ya, bro.
Of course, it’s not that hard to get out of it. Even if you are not that “creative person”.
Honestly, you may not know it but we are all creative. Even if we don’t know it.
When we decorate something that is using your creativity to express our style. When you are writing essays, you don’t always have to write fact by fact. You use different styles so that your essays are not boring. When we get dressed, we are using our skills in matching to form an outfit. When you make up a game for your siblings or friends that is creativity. Making a dish of food. Any small details we do probably has a form of creativity.
This, of course, doesn’t mean we all need to get a creative degree. (Writing, Music, Art, Dance, etc) Our personality and our hobbies usually tell us what we are going to be. Or God may have a different plan for us.
Now the problem is how to break the shell. Inspiration can be found anywhere. From surfing the web, reading the new, and listening to music. Watching a movie/tv show, people watching, and a conversation you had recently.The possibilities are endless. Open your mind. Breathe, it is not going to happen overnight. Pray about it. Relax.
Just remember. Break the shell. Careless of what people think. Be yourself. Express yourself. Doubt will always fight against you.
Lastly, remember “creative” people is just a stereotype. Be yourself. Try new things, you might actually enjoy it. 🙂
