I find inspiration in many things. Beautiful things have the greatest impact on me. I am captivated by things that are visually appealing. They reenergize me and remind me to be grateful. But, I find greater beauty in a deeper place.

My definition of beauty is different from the norm. I see the character of someone or the qualities of something as the true source of beauty.

When I take a moment to look at blooming flowers, I am in awe. Although their colors are beautiful, I am more inspired by their movement. Flowers that open up in the morning sun inspire hope and motivation. And when they bow peacefully to the setting sun, they remind me to be humble.

I am in awe of how much beauty exists around me.

Much of my creativity is innate, but a great portion comes from the motivation of other creative forces. The examples of beauty that I see and hear inspire me.

It is inspiring to know that even when external beauty fades, the inner characteristics remain intact. I get constant encouragement and inspiration from the people in my life. I enjoy life by embracing the inner beauty of others.

Today, I continue to take inspiration from external sources. I know I can look around me and find true beauty to guide my path. I want to live a beautiful life and make living wonderful for others.
