What inspires me to create everyday. A look into my inspiration with Splendid LA.
I have shared this before, but feel as though it has been so long since I have talked about my inspirations. Inspiration to me is the cornerstone to my existence. I truly do not know what my life would look life without the inspiration I have in it. Inspiration is what gives me the overwhelming, gut-punching feeling of creativity. It is that out of my mind excitement and calm centering feeling at the same time feeling, make sense?
For me, I find inspiration in nature. Specifically, I find the most joy out of the coast and the desert. It should br pretty obvious in the content I put out. For me, I believe it is the two extremes that get my creativity flowing. It amazes me how absolutely dead yet alive at the same time the desert is. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, the coast offers so much life and curiosity. What ties them together for me are the colors. The colors of the coast and the dessert are so absolutely beautiful to me. The way the blue sky touches the desert sand just as the ocean hugs the sand of the coast, it is so much bigger than me and THAT is why I love it.
Tell me that does not inspire the hell out of you
I hone in on what fuels my creativity by implementing it to my life every day. Find what inspires you, it can absolutely ANYTHING. It can be a person, a sport, blogging, travel. Whatever it is that fuels your fire find a way to look at it everyday. I have photos of images that inspire me. I print them out and put them on my wall, create mood boards on Pinterest, and save images to my Instagram saved photos every single day. I look at them constantly, I turn to them when I am in a rut, and uninspired. My inspiration grounds me and reminds me of why creating brings joy into my life. I find that every place I go, every outfit put together, or photo I take is inspired by these things. Put your inspiration glasses on and truly see your world the way you want it to look. I promise you it will make life just that much more enjoyable.
We only have one life to live, so do it in a way that brings you joy. Go to restaurants that serve meals that will leave you full and happy, take a walk in your day and actually clear your mind, start a project you have been too afraid to launch (or go on Instagram live lol-inside joke).
At the end of the day, we all have something that gets our creative wheels turning, find it, live in it, and go create someting beautiful.
