Inspiration in everything

Inspiration is something that we all have in us, it is up to us to find. Inspiration can come from music, a movie, or an old book. It can be used to motivate you to do something you never thought possible.

I wonder what it would be like to have a life that is so organized that you could sort your socks by colour.

We all have our own unique stories, struggles and dreams. We can take inspiration from anything. A book, a movie, an experience, a piece of music. Everything is fair game for us to use as inspiration for our characters.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, even a story as simple as a child playing with his toys on the floor.

There is no limit to imagination. We have to provide the right environment and right tools to be able to create something that has never been done before. If you look at a tree, it's just a tree. But if you look really close, you can see the millions of microorganisms that live on it.

Inspiration comes from every day events, but sometimes it is hard to see. Even if it is just a seed of an idea, anything can be a spark for what will become tomorrow's world.

I'm by no means a professional writer, but I think I've been able to take the inspiration from my surroundings and use it to come up with a few good ideas for stories. It's a pretty simple process. The hardest part is getting started. Once you get into the flow, it's hard to stop.

The things that can not be described are the most beautiful. A great life is always about inspiration. When your mind is open, you can find ideas everywhere.

You look at something, and you're immediately inspired! This can happen with a sunset, a bird on the tree, a cloud in the sky, watching things falling down slowly (this is what happens when you put water in a glass and wait till it drains), even washing your face. Inspiration comes in every minute. It is everywhere.

Inspiration is a feeling. It is that magic you feel in your gut when you know something is right , when you know something is good

A painter is standing in front of a blank canvas. The audience can see him staring at the canvas. The muse has struck and the painter has started to paint. He smashed some red on the canvas, then some blue. He starts to make shapes and put other colours, and before you know it we have a beautiful masterpiece

Mihai is a new programmer who just started his first job. He is overwhelmed by the amount of work, and doesn't know where to start. He gets inspiration from looking at the clouds in the sky, and starts writing code for a cloud computing architecture.

Inspiration can be a very slow process. I can be a tiny little thing that gets you inspired, and then you keep on thinking about it till you get to the next level. But it can get harder too. Sometimes, I need to go back to the place where I got inspired and look at it again, or hear the music again, so that I can continue my work! Inspiration is a mysterious thing. It's like a spark inside of you.

Imagine you're at the beach. Maybe it's a small island, or maybe you're on a big beach in an unknown place. Who knows where? Doesn’t matter. Everything is peaceful, still and simple. The sky above is clear and birds are soaring overhead. You see different people, you see their smiles. You see kids playing, adults drinking juice and watching the sunset. Maybe you hear the sound of the sea (or whatever sound it could be), and you feel that everything is perfect. The world has no more problems, no more troubles, no more fear... everything is simple, beautiful, pure.

Take a moment here. Think of your own perfect beach. Think of your own perfect temperature. Think of the waters lapping on the sands, and of the waves gently rolling and receding. And then enjoy life, in all its gritty, complicated, imaginary glory.

Imagine a place where the sun is always shining and the people are always friendly. A place where everyone goes bonkers over your business. Imagine a place you can call home.

Imagine a world in which we love, laugh, and care for one another. A world in which we are not disconnected from each other, but truly connected. A world in which every action, however small, every moment of every day, reverberates across the boundaries of space and time ~ changing everyone, changing the whole universe.

You are the hero of the story. You get to decide what you do, when you do it and how.
