Feeling inspired: Finding inspiration everywhere you go

Feeling Inspired
It’s been a while since I last picked up a pencil and drew something, but the opportunity came to me today at 8:30 in the morning, having arrived one hour and a bit early to an event. There was nowhere else to go, no one else around apart from the receptionist, and yet it was from this nothingness that I did something productive – something that I had wanted to do for a long time.

I finally took the time to draw again. And it was truly satisfying.

Reflecting, it strikes me that maybe that’s the answer. Seizing every opportunity that comes our way is how we can make the best of things in life. Even when it isn’t immediately obvious, we can make an opportunity from nothing. It just takes action. For me, it was picking up a pencil and a scrap piece of paper I found in my bag. It really made me smile inside as I drew and I enjoyed every minute of it – the hour passed quickly, and then my friends arrived and my day brightened just a little bit more.

Why did my day brighten? Because they inspire me.

Being in such great company, being true to myself, holding my scrap piece of paper in my hand, I drew even more. And all of this happened just today.

Tomorrow’s another day, who knows what will happen? I just know for sure that there are opportunities out there waiting for me, waiting for you to seize and make the most of. There doesn’t seem to be a perfect moment for something, and I don’t think we should wait around for it to come around, take action when possible and live.

Finally, I’m keeping this post short and sweet 🙂 and hopefully with all of this in mind you can feel inspired everywhere you go.
