I don't know about how most people are inspired to write. Usually I hear a song, read quote or learn some kind of lesson. Right away I think, hmmm, how could I build on that? How could I liken that to me? What can I learn?
Then the words flow easily, I am rarely at a loss for words. Believe me, I can out talk most people, except for my Valentina. As well, my David and I are pretty evenly matched when it comes to talking. Mainly I am the person that keeps the conversation going with most other people.
I'm not sure if that's always a good thing, I really try to be self aware of other people so that I give them time to talk too. I guess I just don't like lulls, so I fill them. Mainly I think this all comes from the childhood I grew up in where children were seen and not heard.
I carried that shy quiet nature well into my 20's. I was beyond shy, I almost wanted to curl up in a ball if someone looked at me or gosh forbid someone spoke to me. That was almost the end of the world.
Anyhow when I was 25, almost 26, I made a conscious decision that I was going to put myself out there and extend myself. No matter how afraid I was, I didn't even take baby steps. I just started talking to anyone and everyone that interested me.
It's amazing to me how I always seem to find a way to change my life on a dime and than allow myself to get into a state where I convince myself that life will never change. It always does, now is no different. Once I remembered the inspiration I had a few months ago, the one I never did anything about, I just put it all into motion.
