“Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out.”

Every morning I try and read a few random quotes here and there. Mostly to inspire me, but sometimes just to write a nice quote in my agenda. I read the quote about by Karl Augustus Menninger this morning and it sparked today’s blog post. When it comes to my novel I find myself sitting […]

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

Okay. I know. I quote Steve Jobs a lot. And it’s always the same chunk from his Stanford Commencement speech. The full quote above is at the footer of my blog. But I can’t continue to tell you guys enough how much his words, THOSE words fuel me. Two night ago I read my Mr. […]

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

– Robert Louis Stevenson Thunderstorms are in the forecast for today. But for some reason I welcome them. The heat hasn’t been unbearable this past little while, but I never like going long periods of time without rain. I kind of feel like it brings a cleansing property to everything and everyone. Remember as a […]

Daily Inspiration – a break from the serious

“Writing is easy. You just sit down at the typewriter and open a vein.” – Red Smith Morning everyone! I took a break form the daily inspiration yesterday and from blogging so I could centre myself. I don’t want to be too in your face all the time and over-exposed when it comes to my […]

Daily Inspiration – Persistence

Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.” – Tony Robbins I am re-blogging this quote from the LadyRomp blog. It was this morning’s “Message from the […]

Daily Inspiration – Following your passion

“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
” – George Bernard Shaw Another day, another chance to continue on my journey. Waking up this morning felt different for me. I can’t quite explain it, […]

Daily Inspiration – Procratination

“By making writing a part of your daily routine–just like brushing your teeth–you’ll discipline yourself to work as a writer instead of a hobbyist who only writes when there’s some fun to be had.” – Theresa Grant Morning my lovelies! Man, does this quote not hit the nail on the head for me. For the […]

Daily Inspiration – Overcoming

“Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.” – Oprah Winfrey Morning everyone… Over on my side of things, the day is looking to […]
