My sister gave me a little desk calendar with daily inspirations. The theme is “Be Good to Yourself” and features a short quote on each of the Post-It-size tear-off days. (You get gypped, however, because it doubles up on Saturday and Sunday, which is silly because the weekends are the days when you’ll want to make notes of events and happenings, but whatever…)
In addition to the stupid quotes (“I love my money right where I can see it… Hanging in my closet.” ~ Sarah Jessica Parker), there are several that have really made me smile – either because they are things that are very true to my own beliefs or because they are truly inspirational.
And since everyone needs a bit of positive inspiration on a dreary Monday, I’m sharing a couple of my favourites with you!
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
~ Thornton Wilder
You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.
~ John Mason
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
~ E.E. Cummings
