slip on your boots and step outside


  Just do it - Nike's motto resounded in mind; I was stuck, empty and uninspired. So I clutched a cup of water and gulped it down, threw on my coat and shoes, draped a scarf around my neck twice, pulled on a pair of gloves, slipped on boots and swung my camera bag over my shoulder.  I ran; my heart quickened as my feet slapped the dewed pavement and my hair whirled and flew and danced behind me. I practically gulped in the hushed, heavy and crisp winter air and my heart thudded a little faster.

After I got home, I clasped my favourite mug brimming with steaming water and plopped a mint tea bag in; and as steam unfurled and pushed against my rosy cheeks, I admitted within my heart, ''the world outside is a fountain of replenishment.''  And honestly? I really did feel so much more refreshed + inspired after that walk.


where are you most inspired?

  4. Wow! You are such a gifted writer. I absolutely love the way you make stories come to life with your words.
    I'm most inspired on rainy days, or when I step outside for a while and look at God's beauty around me, and also when I watch a movie with a really great message. :)

    Blessings!

  5. love this, Acacia. :) so beautiful... inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes, doesn't it? i'm most inspired with my camera in my hand, outside snapping pictures, cuddled next to the fire with a mug of tea and a good book, or sitting in my rather chilly room scribbling in my journal. :)

  6. Woah boy! These are fabulous. I just went outside today to try and find something to take a picture. I took a whole bunch. I do feel more inspired. But goodness, my pictures were of dead branches and mud and everything looks ugly outside. How do you do it? xx | Natalia.
