While we are preparing for our group discussion on our process for creating the radio show, our task is to get inspired! And I think this is a great topic for this week. I always enjoy reading other people’s work within the course and I really think I’ll have a lot of fun this week. I am definitely feeling inspired, and I actually took that inspiration and created a little Instagram Inspiration Collage on my personal blog, on Sunday night.

If you aren’t feeling motivated or inspired to do something you won’t want to do it.
Sometimes this is the hardest part to get to.
So its just a matter of starting something. And that’s okay if it doesn’t work out, you can at least say you tried! Anyway, this is what inspiration means to me! And I’ll leave you with one last little GIF from the movie The Help! Just a little motivation for you! See ya later!
