Set Yourself Up To Be Inspired

Recently I went outside my comfort zone. I didn’t just step my toe over the line. No, as an introvert I would describe it more as bungee jumping. Yeah, I do Tiktok lives. Multiple times a day! Boy, have I learned a lot about myself. 

I get this question often, “Where do you get your inspiration?” I always start with…. I saw this post on Pinterest and thought “I can do that!”. Well, that was the start, but I’ve taken this tire upcycling adventure to a whole new level. After creating something new I kinda feel like a female version of Rocky running up the steps and lifting my fist in the air doing a little dance. Then I have to run back down the steps and create something different and exciting so I can sprint back up those steps to dance yet again.

As I kept answering this question on my Tiktok lives, it finally hit me! Yep, I designed my space with purpose. I set my space up not just to work in but also to inspire me. I SET MYSELF UP TO BE INSPIRED! 

Yes, I am surrounded by color. I have inspirational quotes on my walls, I have my fabrics and trims displayed. My paint cans sit side by side and look like a mat from the game Twister. My doors are bright colors. My supplies are kept in bright containers and my tools hung on a turquoise pegboard. The walls are white so the colors pop. Tires are stacked in front of a glass-paneled garage door to let the light shine through. I have a large whiteboard to write down my ideas.  How can I not be inspired in this space?

So, you want to set yourself up to be inspired? Try this……

  • Paint your space with colors that make you feel good.
  • Keep your supplies exposed so you can SEE what you have and it stays in your mind.
  • Do you have quotes that inspire you? Post them somewhere so you can see them.
  • Play music that motivates you.
  • Install a whiteboard so you can jot down your ideas and thoughts as you have them.
  • Keep a binder with things in it that make you feel good. It can be pics from a magazine, a recipe, a color swatch, or a joke. Glance at it before you start your day in the shop.

Go on now, it’s your turn. Set yourself up. Set yourself up to be inspired!
