Word Power


When I was about 12 or 13 I really wanted to be a writer. I just knew I was going to write some big novel or maybe write poetry. I actually had a book of my poems that I kept for that day when I became famous and they were worth something. Um, yeah.  Well then high school happened and then the whole grown up thing came along and the poems got shoved into a box somewhere. (I bet you saw that one coming!) But I’ve never quite gotten over my amazement for the power of  words.  Here’s some pics of sayings/quotes that have really inspired me lately.

This is just one of the really inspiring  signs from over at Red Letter Words. (Good luck trying to choose just one!) You can order directly from the artist’s website but she also has a shop over at Etsy. (Ever seen Etsy? If you like creative individualized items it’s the place to be!)

Don’t you just love all the removable vinyl wall decor everywhere? This ones from Right on the Walls-one of my fave sites-they have a lot to choose from.

This is a quote I heard/read somewhere a couple of years ago. It never fails to get me motivated when I need a good kick in the behind to get me in gear!

Here’s a message that’s been quite close to my heart (literally-I’ve worn  it on a necklace) for the last few months. It’s a great reminder anytime I start to doubt or worry about something that seems absolutely impossible.

Have any you’d care to share?
