Today the fabulous Daisy, the Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle blogger behind Daisy’s World, is going to talk to you all about how (and why) she tries to keep inspiration and creativity in her life. So without further ado, over to you Daisy!
Daire and I were both looking for bloggers to write guest posts for us and we thought it would be a good idea to write one for each other; she requested a post on creativity and inspiration so today I’m going to share the things that inspire me and the creative projects I work on daily to keep me busy.
I am a Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle blogger over at Daisy’s World. Daire and I were both looking for bloggers to write guest posts for us and we thought it would be a good idea to write one for each other so today I am going to share the things that inspire me and the creative projects I work on daily to keep me busy, while she tells my readers how fashion inspires her artwork.
I think it is extremely important to be inspired, it keeps you focused and motivated in achieving your personal goals. I would love to own my own house one day, have a successful blog and an enjoyable job. I use the below tips to keep me moving in the right direction in accomplishing these. Hopefully you will be able to apply them to your own life.
Whatever you are hoping to achieve you can be inspired by other people. If you are trying to lose weight for example, other success stories will keep you motivated and prove that your goals are achievable. You can look at why they have been successful and use those tips yourself. I use this in my blogging – I may like a person’s writing style, an idea they have used or how they have designed their blog. I will never copy an idea but I will develop it in my own way to suit me.
When you travel it gives you time to re-evaluate your life and realise what is important. You will see the world in a new light and it may make you change your opinion on your hopes for the future. Being away from home and travelling makes me appreciate my friends and family, as I miss them when I am away.
The more experience you gain the more you will realise what makes you happy. Gaining work experience from several companies for example, will help you decide the career that is best for you. I have only been blogging for three months and since then I have written about several different topics. I have done this so I am able to discover which category suits me best and which topics I will continue to write about.
The words of others can be really powerful and can change the way you feel about a situation. One quote that I like is ‘Stop waiting for things to happen. Go out and make them happen’. This quote really encourages you to take charge of your life and confirms that you need to work towards your goals if you want to achieve them.
It is important to be creative to show your individuality. Whether you like to write, draw or make, it is fun to be unique. Writing a blog in itself is creative – I have set up a website where I write, edit and develop my ideas, and in order to stand out it is important to be different. At the moment I am into nail art, it is a fun way to make different designs with many colours and techniques. I would like to introduce more creativity into my life. This year one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to make something; whether it is a gift, something for the home or something to wear, I plan to make something.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my guest post today. I would love to know what inspires you and how you bring creativity into your life.
