Hello all,

Just thought I'd share this photograph of a stunningly beautiful collection of natural crystals that I found whilst browsing Pinterest yesterday.

Sometimes when I feel a little uninspired {right about now} it takes something really simple like this photograph to make me realise what an amazing world we live in and how many awe inspiringly beautiful things surround us. When I saw it, it seemed to give me a little kick up the bottom that:

1//. there is so much out there to see and inspire, I can't possibly be stuck in this little creative rut forever, I just need to get out there and explore a little bit more rather than expecting inspiration to just come to me.

and

2//. you can't rush things, you can't rush creativity - just like the crystals in that photo - god only knows how long it took for them to form {I suspect a really long time} and no one organised them into that formation, they just grew into this beautiful thing because nature was allowed to take its course. 

So, I don't know about you, and I'm not quite sure how one photo had such a profound effect on me, but in times of 'uninspiration' {I know that isn't a word!} like now, I'm not going to try and force it. In fact, I think, focusing on trying to be inspired most probably has the opposite effect on my creativity. 

Instead I'll focus on doing the things that make me happy; try to enjoy the simple things - and when that bolt of inspiration comes, I'll just embrace it and see where it takes me.

Has anyone else been feeling this way recently, or is it just me?

xo.
