Creative folks are familiar with inspiration’s fickle nature. How it chooses to come and visit whenever it wants. I think they are dead wrong.
I think we choose to be inspired. Or, at least, we choose to look for inspiration.
Inspiration comes in many forms. People inspire. Nature inspires. Life inspires. Music can help you find the painting in a canvas. A flower can lead to a dress. People can show us what we need to find within ourselves.
Inspiration is a skill you need to practice. You need to practice hearing a painting in a concerto or capturing the light as it dances across the floor. If you are listening for it, you can hear the music on the wind. Every moment is filled with inspiration, you just have to be ready to find it.
