Each month I look forward to the FTFCommunity blog event because it always makes me think and get creative! We had a lot of freedom with the August’s theme because our host, Kristy Eléna (of Full Time Fabulous), selected “inspiration” as the focus. What inspires us?
I had this idea in my head that I was going to do a variety of collages, as usual, focusing on different things that inspire me. Things like the beauty all around us. Editorials. Bloggers I admire. The textures and colors that are found in nature. My photography. Tom Ford. Traveling. New experiences. The things that you can see in the collage above.
Then I thought I would focus on my heritage. My family. My friends. The people I love and admire and that inspire me every day.
But when it comes right down to it, my biggest source of inspiration is this:
This photo of my brother and I was taken sometime in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Many, many things have changed since then, but one thing that hasn’t is our relationship. I often wonder if we would be as close as we are today if it wasn’t for his autism. I like to think yes we would be… because he is my hero.
He is my strength.
He is my inspiration.
What inspires you?
