Inspirational Blogging

Weekly or monthly blogging events are seriously one of the best things ever. I love finding them, saving them for later, and reading the various tagged posts. I am, however, quite horrible at actually participating in them. Until today.

Today’s blogging event comes to you from Thistles and Whistles, a fun, inspirational blog about, as she puts it, “books, film, and life”.  Since February she has been hosting a weekly blogging event known as “Take-A-Step Thursday” that invites us to take a step back and look at what has inspired us this week, and what we were inspired to do.

So here’s my participation.  Enjoy.

I really, really love Wicked. Great musical – so many life lessons in it. I’ve listened to this song [Defying Gravity] for a long time, but this week, something in it struck a chord with me, and I’ve been pulling it up several times a day to take a listen, humming it under my breath at work, and even forfeiting the radio in the car to sing it at the top of my lungs (yes, I just admitted that).

I don’t know if I could tell you why, but something about the song and the situation that Elphaba finds herself in inspires me to do something more with my life, something new and different.

So, what have I been inspired to do?  Well, the biggest thing is that I really want to get back into the theatre, so I’m headed out to auditions tonight to see where I can be of some help.

In the little things, I’ve been inspired to pick up my productivity habits again – the ones that I dropped for a while due to being burned out in several areas. I’ve gotten more writing done in the last week than I expected, and I’m proud of it!

So, what have you been inspired by lately?
