Blogspiration (4): It’s In Our Nature

October 27, 2012 § 5 Comments

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.

The sheer beauty of this continues to bewilder me.

Turn your volume up a little bit and watch the whole thing.

I work at a Shangri-La hotel, and I watched this video on my first day of orientation, something like 2 years ago. It gave me chills then. It still does. And I am proud to be a part of this company.

I find this so amazing.

Disconnect to reconnect.

Really reminds us sometimes that we need to step out of the house, get off the internet, unbury our heads from between the pages of a juicy book and remember there are beautiful things out in the world. If anything, at least it’s liberating!

Isn’t this just wonderful? Hemingway, you had it down pat.

I literally do not have words to describe how inspirational this simple message is to me. Write drunk; edit sober. I mean, it’s four words, but it contains an essay’s worth of talk. When you write, don’t let yourself be constricted by your worries, by your inability to write, by the plot bunnies or the writer’s block – just write. What you get down may be horrible because of your impromptu mind vomit, but once it’s edited? I get this feeling that it’ll be something special.

Write drunk. Edit sober.

Never be afraid to dream, because it is through dreams that you discover the powerful element that is potential. Potential to be strong, to be ambitious, to step outside your comfortable and cushiony box out into the big bad world. To dream for the future is better than dwelling on today, because your dreams determine the present.

Never be ashamed of being a dreamer. They may laugh at you now, but they’ll bow their heads in shame for trying to drag you down with them. Chin up, stay strong, stay focused and remember that the only opinion that matters is yours.

Where Am I?
