What Inspires Me to Be Creative and to Live a More Beautiful Life

  • Watching the sunrise each morning as I walk in the park with my four-year-old son
  • Reading a book whose words leap off the page and come alive in my head
  • Taking time to see and photograph the beauty that is all around me
  • Someone who offers positive advice rather than negative especially in regards to writing
  • A pain-free day
  • Listening to Hay House Radio each day at work
  • Listening to Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer affirmations on my iPhone
  • Writing my morning pages
  • Requiring Fridays off from work so that I can focus on writing
  • Reading inspiring blogs that encourage participation from readers such as Inspiration Art Flirtation and Soul Food Cafe
  • Reading poetry
  • Eating healthy, organic foods
  • Attempting to draw even though I don’t know how
  • Meditating
  • Visualizing a beautiful future
  • Volunteering
  • Watching miracles occur in my life every day
  • Being alive
  • Writing an “I am grateful for” list every day with my four-year-old son
  • My son and I raising our hands towards the sky each morning and saying “Thank you for this beautiful day, thank you for this beautiful life, thank you for this beautiful mommy/son” and then giving each other a great BIG hug!
  • Reading, writing, reading, writing, reading, writing…..
  • SLEEP 🙂
