For my last writing assignment I had to write an essay about my hopes for the future. My writing tutor wrote some lovely things back about my writing and the progress I made during the course.
She advised me to start a Quote Book and fill it with things I pick up on my travels so I have something to reference in the times when I need some inspiration. Plus it’s a good excuse to buy another notebook!
I find I can never have enough notebooks, I have them dotted around and keep them for different things as the mood takes me. Sometimes I find the only way I can process things is by writing them down.
Today I was feeling kind of flat so I thought I would have a look online for some inspirational pick me ups to perk me up ready for a new day tomorrow so I thought I would share a couple I found interesting on Goodreads:
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
― Bernard M. Baruch
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey
“So many books, so little time.”
― Frank Zappa
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
― Albert Camus
“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”
― Elbert Hubbard
