Need to re-ignite your spark?

Anyone else feeling blah and overwhelmed from all that is going on with this COVID-19 pandemic? I know I have felt a serious information overload. Seriously, the Coronavirus outbreak is on every channel, every media platform and has changed our way of life.

There is sooo much going on.

As a blogger, I found myself feeling overwhelmed and lacking creative inspiration. It’s hard to have creative juices spilling over when I’m seeing content virus updates that aren’t good.

I had to watch videos and listen to podcasts to ignite my creative fire.

The time had come to pause and think of the things that has consistently inspired me in this past. So, I started reading various Maya Angelou quotes. Guess what? It worked. Maya Angelou’s legacy and wisdom lives on.

Maya Angelou Quote

Keep It Fresh

As a blogger who LOVES to write content, lately I’ve struggled with WHAT TO POST. Prior to all this outbreak stuff, I had pre-scheduled (automated) blogs and social media posts with interesting and funny write ups but now I decided to delay the postings. Why? My reason for delaying the posts are to be sure I’m being sensitive to those directly impacted by the outbreak in any way.

Inspirational Topics

When I have writer’s block or need added substance for a writing project, I go to YouTube or Google to search topics like inspirational leadership, journaling, self-care, mindset habits or similar keywords. Several videos gave me a little inspiration, but something I saw reminded me of a Maya Angelou quote that has consistently encouraged me over the years. The thought of this ONE particular quote is the leading inspiration behind THIS post. It was difficult to post a few Maya quotes. She left us with so much of her profound wisdom. So, I just wanted to share a few of my favorites to help fulfill your inspirational needs.
