Brooke Shaden : Creating new worlds through images.
This week I received an email from a most beautiful soul, asking if I would write about the topic of how to find inspiration when life is getting you down. I’m extremely empathetic and I take on others pain and joy very easily, and after reading her email, I cried for her. And if I can offer any words of advice that might be even 1% useful, well, that is how to contribute to our community. The first thing that I think needs to be clarified about artistry or inspiration or even passion is that it does not have to be who we are. Have you ever felt that way? If you need to grieve, grieve. That said, there is always a time to get back up and do what you love doing. How do I know if I am ready to jump back into finding inspiration and being motivated? If I can take a step back from my life and clearly see the bad that has happened, and insert good thoughts to combat that, I take that as a sign that I am ready to create again. I believe that anyone who seeks inspiration will find it.
