what inspires you? - baked bree

mission: MUSE - "what inspires you?"
by guest bree

What inspires me?

Everything inspires me.
When I have a hard time finding inspiration, I stop looking for it.  And then it usually comes. 
Taking a good look around my surroundings. 
Eating something exotic. 
Reading a good book. 
Talking to an old friend or meeting new ones.  
Spending time with new families, or old ones. 
New babies.
Looking at art.
Spending time outside.
Or on the couch with my family.
Loving deeply.
Experiencing sadness.
Laughing until I snort.
All of these experiences make my life richer and for that I am inspired.

Do any of my inspirations resonate with you? Leave me a comment for an extra entry to win a spot in Darrah Parker's Slice of Life e-course, posted earlier today. 

Thank you for inviting me to muse with you.
