for this season isn’t for rising, just yet.
this season is for letting the light
into our emptied hands.
- Danielle Doby (I Am Her Tribe)
The hard part isn’t always to find inspiration or be inspired.
The harder part is to not be too inspired.
When we’re overly inspired, we run the risk of either moving too quickly and skipping past crucial milestones or opportunities to learn.
Or our end result is almost exactly the same as the source that inspired us, which means we’re not speaking or acting in our unique voice.
Every time I get a Seth Godin email, I am inspired to write like him. But that is probably not the best for me.
My inspiration should instead be to get better at writing like me and eventually inspire others to feel the same way about my writing that I do about Seth’s.
