The Power of Stillness

This gorgeous image was taken at sunrise on my last day of vacation. I set my alarm for 5:00 am and headed down to the beach by myself with a chair and my writing journal. The breathtaking colors, the sound of the waves and my stillness proved to be the perfect inspiration for a new story. An idea I’d written down months before, suddenly came spilling out in full sentences onto the page.

This was a great reminder to take time out of my busy life to sit still, calm my mind and breathe. Sometimes that is all our creativity needs to show up.
