What Inspired Me This Week

From timely writing inspiration to Greek gods, here’s a list of things that inspired me this week.

I’m definitely looking forward to a great week after finding these timely bits of inspiration over the weekend.

1. Writing Inspiration

I was feeling down a bit about the challenge of keeping my dream to write full time alive.

Here’s a piece that really gave me the boost I needed to stop beating myself up over my imperfections and just keep going.

You can check it out if you find yourself in a slump especially as a writer.

Or this article from The Writing Cooperative; Why You Should Write Daily Even If You Hate It

Or check out one of my very own articles that I rediscovered for myself at such a timely moment; Perfectionism or Self-sabotage?

2. Influence of social media in our lives today

Today we have Influencers leading the way in society instead of leaders and we continuously seek validation in the wrong places and things.

Widespread influence and amassing likes on social networks has taken the place of integrity and love. We need a paradigm shift to a time where we lived and fought for the right reasons.

Influencers or Leaders? Validation or Invalidation?

This is a short read about my thoughts on the wrong influences that’s swallowing up our core values as a race, inspired by a bible passage.

3. What I’m Reading. . .

I decided to get back into reading as I’ve always loved to read. What better book to start with than a potentially tantalizing fantasy – a modern retelling of Hades & Persephone no less!

About the book:

Society darling Persephone Dimitriou plans to flee the ultra-modern city of Olympus and start over far from the backstabbing politics of the Thirteen Houses.

But all that’s ripped away when her mother ambushes her with an engagement to Zeus, the dangerous power behind their glittering city’s dark facade.

With no options left, Persephone flees to the forbidden undercity and makes a devil’s bargain with a man she once believed a myth…a man who awakens her to a world she never knew existed.

Hades has spent his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of stepping into the light. But when he finds that Persephone can offer a little slice of the revenge he’s spent years craving, it’s all the excuse he needs to help her—for a price.

I’ve read works from this author before so I’m super excited to check this one out. Particularly since I’m a sucker for greek mythology themes. I’ll be sure to post a review after reading.

I wish you all a beautiful week ahead. Stay safe, remain blessed and keep fighting!

  1. I love reading articles to gain inspiration too, especially since I frequently write both blog posts and fiction pieces. Movies also play a big role in inspiring me. Thanks for sharing your inspiration for the week!
