The Wonderment of Inspiration



"I love being inspired, but eventually, inspiration has to turn into action."


June was a crazy month, full of highs and lows! Thankfully, not too low. Through it all, I feel oddly rejuvenated and even more inspired to push towards creative goals. June is my and my daughters birthday month and it was also a month full of questions, doubts and wonder. Wondering where life will lead my husband and I's creative pursuits and aspirations and how we will do on the journey there. I am truly thankful to have a partner who is not only my biggest cheerleader, but also a fellow dreamer. It's nice to be able to dream together.

The confusion of the month, led to some interesting places for me, creatively. The fire that was simmering underneath me is now at full blast and I am more than happy to say that my launch towards my brand, 19FIFTYTHREE is getting closer and closer. If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you'll know how much I love being inspired, but eventually, inspiration has to turn into action. I have sat back and been in awe of how wonderfully inspired I have been and am finally feeling at peace, in a place, where all of that inspiration is finally coming together.

It's been a month since my last post and since then, I've collected more visuals that have moved me and inspired me to create. Here's a small compilation of some of those visuals.
