I don't know about you, but this week FLEW for me. Whoa!
Two things that are constantly on my mind, 24/7, are creativity and inspiration.
This week, I've been working on keeping my creative juices flowing and summoning inspiration from all around me.
You can find inspiration ANYWHERE. You just need to keep your eyes open and let it come to you. Last night I was inspired by headlights on a car. I then went on to write a poem based off of those headlights. Crazy, huh?
I've been working on summoning inspiration from different things lately because I've been working on taking my poetry to a new depth. In the majority of the work I've written thus far, I make the point I'm trying to make very clear. Since exploring the world around me I've been starting to use a lot more symbolism and imagery in my recent poems and I've been LOVING it.
I feel as though I'm stepping up my game and getting better! Like those headlights, for instance. I was inspired to write a poem about an event opening our eyes to something we didn't see before because we were in the dark. Cool, huh?
As you all know, I've been working on figuring out what I want and who I want to be. I want to be a creative spirit. I've been working a lot on meditation. I've been going on hour long walks every morning/afternoon. Listening to music, walking, and taking in new inspiration has been quite lovely. I suggest meditation to you all! Find something you enjoy, something peaceful, and spend a little time a day doing it. It does wonders on your soul.
A few little announcements:

To say I'm sorry, today I will be posting the poem I was going to post yesterday, PLUS A SONG. Are you excited? I am! I'm even MORE excited because this is the first piece I've ever written.
