Finding inspiration is a journey with no beginning or end. Like anything else, most of us can’t find real inspiration the first time we try.

If it doesn’t harm others indulge in the experiences you enjoy, the ones you can’t wait to get involved in.
Things that get you so motivated that you lose track of time while you’re doing it are a good place to start. Nurturing those pleasurable experiences will help your inspiration to flourish and grow.
