Who Inspires The Creative Minds?

by Alex Garrett

Every day, on podcasts, on Tik Tok, and on Instagram , the creativity is exploding!

I’ve blogged about this before, the idea how creativity has lifted us up during this pandemic. Yet, who lifts up the uplifting minds of social media?

It’s a question I’ve been wondering since I found a photo by Ben Ko (@benkophoto) that really inspired me. Now , I don’t open up about being inspired because I just want to spread a positive message and not make it about me.

Let me take you behind the curtain though. I firmly believe God has given creative brains to everyone, and so many take advantage of it! I believe God can and does inspire us!

He does inspire us through others . I may smile, I may have fun, but I do have down days (shocker , right?)

This pandemic sometimes ‘kicks the teeth in’ to my mindset because I do want to believe there is an end in sight, and we will see each other again!

When reality sets in that it will take a while longer, I just start remembering the ‘good old days’ in 29 years . Yet, there are moments where I find others keep going that tells me I TOO CAN KEEP GOING. YOU TOO CAN KEEP GOING!

So, creatives and anyone reading this, who inspires you? Who uplifts you? For me, the fact my immediate family are all here through this pandemic is inspiring and uplifting! It’s amazing how close I’ve become with my mom, dad and my stepdad Vic!

Let’s stay inspired as we hope and look to inspire!
