Seeking Inspiration: Carry Me Through


Photo from: John Corvera

Dearest Devotees,

We all need someone who inspires us. Someone who believes in us, in our ability to create, to improve and to grow. We need someone that shows us that when times get hard, we should not give up but instead we should increase our pace and work with even more zeal than before. These people can inspire us just by showing that they have been through similar times and have emerged victorious. Or they could be our friends, families, or loved ones, people close to us that provide security and the faith in ourselves that we sometimes lack as portrayed in the song Crawl (Carry Me Through) by Superchick. Even if we see ourselves as completely independent, we need people to give us a push in the right direction, to critique our work and sometimes to be our muse. Relationships bring about experiences and experiences are the substance of life. So if you don't already have someone that inspires you, make an effort to find that person today and you will soon find yourself reaching heights that you never dreamed of.

Here are some of the links that inspired me this week:

These teapots take self-expressive home d├Ęcor to a whole new level.

Why would anyone have a thing against princesses? Super Kawaii Mama gives us more reasons to love them.

I'm a sucker for little kids but this little guy singing Jason Mraz's I'm Yours is just too precious!

I have found some more kindred spirits in the girls from Shimmer Like Gold and Live Life Deeply.


And now for this week's exercise:

Dashing past the little burst of colour that were the newly blossomed cherries, with her bubblegum pink skirts rustling in the wind, Carnatia raced to the top of Daela hill with Lorelei close on her heels.



'Tag you're it!' Lorelai squeeled with delight as she hurled into Carnatia. But Carnatia had other plans.

'Not if I have anything to say about it!' she shrieked as she began to tickle Lorelai all over and before they knew it they were in fits of laughter, giggles and squeals on the grassy hill. Soon their peals of laughter died down, and they lay in contemplative silence amongst the dandelions and bluebells.

'I'm really happy you came this summer, Natie. I don't know what I'll do when you leave with your family,' whispers Lorelai, all 8 years of her displaying her misery at the mere thought of being without her newfound bestfriend. After being quiet for awhile Carnatia said.
'Cousin Reina says that it we really care about someone we can always feel them there and find them in everything around us, if we believe. '

'Do you believe?'

'Yes.'


Love you all and Stay inspired,


P.S. So let me know what you think. Do you have a muse/someone that motivates or inspires you? Do you have a critique? What does the picture make you think of? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.
