Just write!

Brilliant!!

Cristian Mihai


Odds are that one day you’ll start working on a story for longer than normal. Odds are that you’ll try to make it perfect, even when it’s clear that you’re just afraid to let it go. You’ll fear rejection and bad reviews. You’ll think you’re not good enough to write the story the way it deserves to be written. You haven’t lived long enough and stuff like that.

Maybe you do so because you feel this story’s the “one.” This is the story where you actually say something no one else can, where you leave behind more of you than you’ve done before. It’s the story that defines who you are more than anything else ever written.

Good Morning!!

Welcome to Monday, the start of a new week full of possibilities, adventures & puzzles…

Had a great week in Saint Louis… One of my personal favorite memories of the trip was 3 ladies, jumping out of vehicles in a parking lot & doing the Hokey Pokey. We got a little turned around 😉 (You can believe I was right there in the thick of it!)

So now that I’ve tattled on myself, here are this week’s Positively Thought Provoking Quotes

“The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side.” ~Margaret Carty

“It is one of man’s curious idiosyncrasies to create difficulties for the pleasure of resolving them.” ~Joseph de Maistre

“Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute.” ~Gil Stern

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” ~Edward Everett Hale

Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect whether he chooses to be so or not. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Feel free to forward this on to those you know who might need, or want a little Monday morning “pick me up”… They can also send me an email asking me to add them to my ever growing list if they so desire! 

You can find more inspiration to get you through a tough moment on my Positively Amazing You!(TM) Facebook page.

Wishing you a week that is filled with an abundance of adventuresome moments,

“I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.”  

~Johnny Depp

 I don’t know about you, but confusion is not a place that I find comfort in. so when I read the above quote I thought ‘say what?’  I pictured for an instant the joy of sticking one’s tongue out smiling at the same time and thought how confusing THAT could look to somebody. 

Maybe that quote is just Depp’s way of embracing the silliness within…  and confusion does resemble silliness sometimes…  perhaps…  maybe…  I could be wrong…  What are your thoughts?!  Are you as confused as I by the thought?  If so, my mission is accomplished, I’m now in good company!  😉

Anyhow, back to the task at hand…  Here are this week’s Positively Thought Provoking Quotes.

“An idea is salvation by imagination.” ~ Franklin Lloyd Wright

 “Nothing right can be accomplished in art without enthusiasm” ~Robert Schumann

 “The very things that hold you down are going to lift you up.” ~Dumbo

 “Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.”

 “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” ~Judy Garland

Wishing each of you, a Splendiferously AMAZING Week!!

“Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.” ~ Charles F. Kettering

The Awe-Manac, one of my favorite quote sources carried the above quote a bit further with what I might call a challenge…. “Go on, Get Your Mind Out. Explore a New Frontier without Leaving the Dip in Your Hammock! Grab Your Mind by the Brilliance!”

Personally speaking, I absolutely love the amazing potential that those words provoke and am getting more and more excited about the “New Frontier of sorts” that my husband and I will be leaving our proverbial hammocks for!

Ok, so back to the task at hand… Here are this week’s Positively Thought Provoking Quotes to see you through to Friday…

“Wisdom begins in wonder, be as you wish to seem”. ~Socrates

“Confusion is the welcome mat at the door of creativity.” ~Michael J. Gelb

“Time cools, time clarifies, no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours” ~Thomas Mann

“Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.” ~Bill Moyers

“Follow you inner moonlight, don’t hide the madness.” ~Allen Ginsberg :: side note:: picture me, singing along as “Dancing in the Moonlight” plays on my internal radio 😀

May your week be one that is sprinkled with uncontainable joy.
