I follow this philosophy no matter who said it first.
My office is a goldmine of inspirational quotes, artwork, pictures, and such. I spend most of my time there, so why shouldn't it be the place that houses my inspiration, right?
Right. I'm so glad you agree.
Sometimes it surprises me how much it works. I'll be staring out my window (I'm easily distracted), thinking about what project to tackle next, and BAM! Solution to all my plot problems hits me. I give credit to the plants and the gorgeous sunshine that floods my office every day.
Another day, another hour, I'll be sitting at my desk frustrated by paperwork or some other necessary task and I'll look above my computer screen where this hangs:
"Why, yes. Yes, I will," I think, and carry on my task with a lighter heart.
I have a lot more of these in my office, but I won't bore you with pictures of them all. The point is that if you surround yourself with positive inspiration, it makes it harder to be discouraged.
Do you do this? Do you have quotes or pictures that inspire you stashed around your living space?
Write on, lovelies. Have a wonderful weekend.
