I started the #DailyInspirationChallenge¬† on Instagram in October of 2014. I wanted to design a project that would open up my creativity again. I initially committed to posting at least one photo every day for 40 days. I was so inspired by this project that I just kept on going. I found that posting a photo every day forced me to look at the world differently. Instead of focusing on the negative, I learned to search out beauty in my everyday surroundings and to share that beauty with the world. It was an eye-opening project and even though I don’t post every single day anymore I still find myself very engaged with the project, both in looking for beauty in everything around me and in finding joy in sharing that beauty with my friends.

Inspired? I encourage you to start a 40 day challenge of your own. Join me with hashtag #dailyinspirationchallenge
