On Inspiration After 250 Consecutive Days Of Blogging On Medium

Day 250/365: Inspiration is found, it doesn’t find you

Inspiration is such a beautiful word.

“Inspiration”

Just saying it out loud gives you a certain sense of power. It’s like you have complete control over your own brain to get the creative juices flowing. I had a very hard time finding inspiration all through the month of August. I was almost ready to quit this daily writing challenge, but then I decided against it.

I decided all I needed was a little more inspiration for the next article. So I went on a train, got to a new city and simply started exploring it.

I looked at the boutiques around the city centre. I then took a stroll down a beautiful park, admiring the trees and the flowers. I then stopped for a nice lunch at a local restaurant, engaging in small talk with the waiter.

I hopped on a bus with no destination at hand and just let myself get into the mood of being inspired. By the buildings. By the gentle stroll through the streets. By the traffic lights. By the everchanging scenery.

By the people.

Inspiration is often hard to find. Yet, all you have to do in order to find it is to put a little effort into doing just that. It doesn’t have to be a lot of effort. It just has to be a small effort but done with kindness and respect.

Inspiration is not something I’m now lacking, 250 days into this daily writing challenge. Which is hard to grasp when you first say it out loud. If I’ll ever lack inspiration ever again, I’ll just stop, turn to my window, open it and then just look out for 3 minutes. It doesn’t even matter what I see out there.

Inspiration is found, it does not find you.

All that matters is for me to find yet another sparkle of inspiration for the day.
