Try something beyond quote poster

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote is a great reminder that you’ll never grow if you don’t try new things. It’s not easy learning new things, believe me. It takes dedication, determination, commitment, and time, but it’s worth the blood, sweat, and tears. Don’t settle for good enough. Push yourself to be better.

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

Shadows Sunshine quote poster

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote is a great reminder that your own negativity can get in the way of being a positive person. Be optimistic and positive – good things will come your way. Don’t get in your own way!

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

Independence quote poster

I did a search for quotes about independence since today is Independence Day in the US. I chose this quote not just for the independence day reference but because it’s a great reminder that you become a stronger person with ambition and self-determination, two qualities that are especially important when you have your own business.

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is such a great reminder that you can determine your own future and destiny. Don’t just do what others want you to do. YOU have the power to decide who you want to be.

Hope you are inspired by something or someone this week. Enjoy your weekend!

Be the best you can be.

This week’s quote was inspired by this post from calligrapher and illustrator Molly Jacques on Perfecting Your Skills. Perfecting your skills is what’s going to make your work stand out. Take a class from someone you admire. And practice because practice makes perfect.

You can fail at what you don’t love,
so you might as well take a chance on doing what you do love.
• Jim Carrey •

I was so inspired after watching this one-minute video with Jim Carrey giving a commencement speech. He gives such great advice:

  • Don’t choose your path in life out of fear disguised as practicality.
  • Dare to ask the universe for what you really want!

Hope you are inspired by something or someone. Enjoy your weekend!

Work hard quote poster

I was inspired after reading this article, an interview with Bari J. Ackerman, artist, illustrator, pattern designer, and fabric designer. I’ve always admired her beautiful work!

This quote reminds me of advice I often received from my mom as I was growing up. It continues to apply at any age, no matter what I’m doing.

Enjoy your weekend!

Find Your Passion

 

I read this quote by Michelle Kohanzo, Managing Director the The Land of Nod, in this inspiring article on Design Sponge’s “We Want Your Job” series this week.

Other advice from Michelle that inspired me:

  • Learn to be patient and slow down a bit.
  • Be creative – paint, sew, write.
  • Find your inspiration and understand what drives you – let that passion direct you.

Enjoy your weekend and kick–off to summer!
