Inspiration: The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative: "flashes of inspiration".
Being inspired is a little flash of life. A reminder that you are ticking and need to keep ticking. I was inspired last night. I kept it quiet while it was happening. I was enjoying a movie but thinking to myself the whole time...acknowledging this pull that was happening. The story was pulling my heart in a direction that it has been pulled so, so, so many times in my life. The Words. A movie about stories that only the deepest and meaningful words can tell. Words travel through my mind incessantly. They stream together into little stories. A poetic journey in my head and heart. I have to write. I love to write. I have a hole in my life when I am not writing. Why have I never REALLY tried this? Fear is why. It's something I love so dearly and if I failed...then what?
So, the movie ends and my love and I go sit down to finish our drinks. He looks at me and says, "Were you thinking what I was thinking the whole time?" I stared at him blankly and said, "No clue. Tell me what you were thinking." He said, "That you need to be writing and that's what's missing. I miss waking up to see what you wrote the night before."
I smiled and almost started crying. I was not surprised at my reaction. One, because it's yet more proof that this is the man I am meant to spend my life with. No one understands me like him. Second, he was so very right. For someone else to validate what I was feeling was very emotional for me. Still is. He has encouraged me to acknowledge this inspiration and to try to overcome my fears and have some fun with it. Words are free. It costs me nothing to try to follow a dream. I have no idea what to write or how to start but I am going to continue to allow myself to tick and find the passion and put it into words.
