Well, not a whole lot of time for a blog post this week, but that’s because I’ve been writing . . . A LOT.
Truth: I like to feel inspired when I write.
Thought: Stay inspired by knowing yourself.
Question: How do I keep enjoying what I’m doing?
Answer: I study myself. Continuously.
I keep a running tab each week of what worked and didn’t work, or in other words, what drained the mess out of me and what gave me life again.
Life-giving moments fuel the inspiration needed for my writing . . . among other things (it’s hard to enjoy anything you’re doing when you feel “kaput”). I have to study myself because I am ever-evolving, so the things that inspire me are constantly changing.
So, what gives you life? What keeps you inspired to continue doing what you’re doing?
I suppose it’d been unfair for me not to at least share two of mine from this week.
1) I laughed. I find as many opportunities as possible to do this. (It helps that I’m extremely ticklish)
2) I sat in the sunshine . . . aka I turned off the running “to-do” list in my head.
Spilling water all over your manuscript for the SECOND time is not inspiring, but after I take a deep breath, I do find it funny . . . and I laugh.
Stay in the game. Stay inspired. Know yourself.
