I believe that inspiration is the heart of fulfillment.
That being inspired means living a meaningful life.
That when we are inspired, we can create art with impact.
Some people are naturally inspired. I am one of those people. I thank the stars everyday that I can find inspiration in anything. Over time I have discovered what a gift it is to be inspired, and I want to do everything I can to spread inspiration to others.
I know that it is distributed unevenly, that it is more difficult for some people to find than others.
I have learned to cultivate inspiration when I can’t find it naturally. So, I made a video about some fun ways to do that, and some practical tips, too:
