signs


One really has to work in order to know that inspiration indeed exists.
There are signs, one just has to look for them.
Some messages are hidden on purpose, like the words inside a lucky fortune cookie.
...or inside a bureau. Notes and quotes pinned in a spot serve as gentle reminders or signs to carry on.
Do you have any inspirational notes posted about?
Any notes or signs that you treasure and keep posted about to keep you motivated?

be back shortly to list the sources...

Lovely post. I have one up from our buddy Sue:
Talk less about your identity and Do more to Define, Live and Believe it.
I love that one.

A great lists of hidden messages. I really like the last one. xo

What a good way to get yourself on task! Posting sayings inspire, but fortunes in cookies don't work for me. I've had some pretty un-inspiring cookies. Good for a laugh but not much else. So I guess I will just stick with Quotationaries. :-)

Terrific inspiration. I think I'll leave myself a few notes to find later. One of my favorites is "You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt.

We have so many posted inside cabinets, in drawers, in wallets, in the car, on desks. Much like your notes.

I leave little notes for myself all the time - my own issue is that sometimes I can't find them!!

I don't have any. They tend to make me nervous for some reason. But I do love that Picasso quotation you have there. Quite a lot.

PVE,

The one I live by is "Inquire Within" works all the time. Enjoy learning what motivates others as well as some others I may adopt myself.

i love things like this. I have some reminders on my desk: "Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never have enough. I also like: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." -Colossians 3:23

I keep a journal of inspirational quotes. One of them is currently sitting on my desk. It reads "live life on all four burners." Love it.

That first Picasso quote is fantastic. I'm writing it down now to post in several parts of my house. That was just the lift I needed today.

Haughty by Nature said...

I like to put up thank-you notes, quote, and magazine tears on my bathroom mirror. It give me a little something to read when I'm brushing my teeth, and even just glancing in that direction puts me in a better mood. (And reminds me not to rush in the mornings.)
