Empower yourself and realise the importance of contributing to the world by living your talent. Work on what you love. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.
When I find a good quote, I like to print it out or illustrate it to tape it above my computer. On days when I feel tired or uninspired, I take a breath, look at one of my quotes, and try to embody the essence of what it is that I liked about the quote in the first place.
For the same reason, I’ll also print out emails from friends, teachers, and family to help keep me motivated. Kind words are a reminder that what we’re doing is useful, whether it’s related to your blog, your job, or your family. With writing in particular, a good quote can help get you writing when (you think) you’d rather be watching TV. It can also jump start your own story. How many times have you looked at a quote and thought, “Okay, now’s my time to write something memorable”?
Where do you find inspirational words? Better yet, what’s your favorite quote that you’ve written yourself?
