Basically as soon as I knew how to screenshot something on my iPhone I was hooked. I began saving pics of pretty scenery, quotes I loved, outfits I wanted to emulate. The word “muse” comes to mind but this is not the extent I want to relay. To me, “muse” is long-term. It’s someone who serves as constant inspiration for whatever your project maybe. These moments I compile are tiny hits of inspiration that are ever-changing and always being replaced or forgotten. It’s the things in life that come across my path that cause me to make a certain “small” decision. It’s like this: I see a bright bunch of flowers at the farmer’s market and then choose my outfit based on that combination of vibrant orange and hot pink that I saw in those flowers. Get it?
I am a collector of beautiful things and by “beautiful” I mean something that provokes emotion in me, just as much as something that I see as physically and aesthetically pleasing. Pinterest and Instagram has made this possible
As we speak, I’m sitting at a Panera drinking iced coffee and I can hear one of the male cashiers tell every customer to “have a beautiful day” at the end of their order. This is something that inspires me. The same man let me know he loved my dress while I was getting my coffee. Some people barely squeeze out a “thank you” or a “bye.” I always know that I am in that specific place and time because I was meant to witness that kindness and beauty. (Huge believer in timing right here.)
Anyway, I feel like starting a regular recap of my own inspiring moments I collected with all of you. Thursday night seemed like a good time to do this. Right before we head into the weekend, the last night that isn’t particularly joyful for most since we have one more day of work. Some times I might have lots of quotes, one time I may seem to be drawn toward landscapes, and I just know that my collection will include a lot of style, fashion, and even some gorgeous people.
I’m hoping that by sharing my inspirations, you notice those moments in your own lives and let them inspire you to do something wonderful.
Beauty is all around.
I’ve started here with my Instagram picks from the last few days.
Umm, hello, I’m going here. Something for me to reach for.
This one is all about the caption!
Every struggle is a chance to grow.
Seriously. My astrology sign cat is Indiana. It’s fate.
Listen to yourself. You will hear what you want.
We can heal ourselves from within. Oh yes.
I’m betting on myself. How about you?
Yessssss. No one is telling you what to do, say, think, or believe. That’s all you.
