So, apart from celebrating the finalisation of my newsreel essay I’ve been thinking for the rest of the day who actually inspires me? A question I’m going to attempt to answer.
At a glance I look to celebrity figures like Lady GaGa, Beyoncé or even my very faithful Mr Taylor Lautner. All of them inspire me in completely different ways, but what I find so unique is that they all stand for what they believe in, especially GaGa.
I’ve seen both Lady GaGa and Beyoncé live on stage and seriously, I’ve never seen anything like it in my entire life. In the few hours that I spent in the same room as them I’ve never been so inspired and been able to achieve whatever I want to. When you put everything into retrospect you realise how tiny the world actually is, as if you’re holding this tiny grain of sand between your fingertips. It’s those kind of moments that make you suddenly stop and go, hold on a minute, I can actually do whatever I want to do.
Reading is another thing that has inspired me. It has been people around me who have encouraged me to pick up a book and read, my Nan most prominently. When I was younger the only kind of words I was concerned about where those coming out of the mouths of people on TV. Now, the words I care about most, are the written ones. It’s taken me about 6 months to get through the Twilight Saga, and never have I felt so attached to a group of characters in my entire life. Another one of my favourite authors, Lindsey Kelk, also proved to me that reading can actually make you stop and think.
Yet, the most important inspiration I hold is the closest people around me; my family and friends. Every day I wake up and want to write about something new, and it is them I look to for inspiration. When you write a blog, a piece of fiction or even a tweet I’ve learnt it should come from the heart, the written word is certainly more powerful than the sword.
So there you have it, I’ve been inspired and I hope you have to!
