Where has the world gone wrong with the idea of inspiration? When did we become so reliant on the world around us? We believe the accomplishments of others are far better than what we could ever come up with on our own. The term “pinspiration” is just one example of how influenced we have become to what others can show us.
We are so focused on what others think of us. We can’t even find the own source of our inspiration to carry out the things we love. No, we don’t lack creativity. What we lack is the ability to understand that despite living in a much more complicated society, we still have the capability to fuel the things that make us happy!
Yes we look to others to get an idea. To find something fresh and new. But, don’t let your desire to try something new, to pursue something different, be an act of trying to surpass someone else — take it and make it your own.
Inspiration is a journey not a competition.
