I is for Inspiration

Inspiration is an important aspect of life. If we aren't inspired, then we are less likely to be motivated.

Inspiration is definitely something I need. I am quite a lazy person, so I need to draw from any type of inspiration I possibly can. For me, Tumblr is definitely a huge source of inspiration. I have come across so many amazing pictures since starting my blog in 2010 and I save these images in my computer and go back to them if I am having a mental block and I am in need of some inspiration.

Quotes and people also inspire me. Thoreau is a big one. His quotes are very inspiring, especially: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined." I would definitely say this is a motto that I live by. It inspires me to do well in everything I try and it keeps me going. 

The most inspirational person I admire would have to be Marilyn Monroe. She was such an incredible and talented human being. Her story is very inspiring to me. She came from a troubled background and was able to rise up and become the legend that she was. Her quotes proved that she was brainy as she was beautiful. She sure as hell knew what she talking about. I could sit here all day and quote her, but instead I'll leave you with this, one of my favourite Marilyn quotes: "This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up."

Where do you get your inspiration from? What inspires you? I'd love to know.


  1. Inspiration just comes to me, be it from a human or an animal or just a lovely day. I do find some inspiration in Paulo Coelho's quotes.

  2. reading my favorite books again always inspires me to write:)
    Happy A-Zing!

  3. I am inspired by people who do things out of the ordinary, who refuse to fit the mold. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.
