Inspiration gives us a window into our dreams by shifting our perspective. A little external inspiration can flower into a garden of new opportunities within, helping us build a horizon that is captivating enough to keep us on the road to our greatest dreams and aspirations.

As a kid, I remember thinking that finding inspiration was somehow cheating. Growing up,  I started to understand how important it was with any creative endeavor.  Now I see it as research that shapes my  thoughts, actions and ultimately my dreams. Its influence has become something that I can not function my best without.

We create our lives with our thoughts and actions. Seek inspiration and allow it to fuel the incredible, awesome, challenging creative process that is your life!
