Quote for Inner Strength & Inspiration

Throughout the year, a quick glance over at my office wall during a grueling day of work (or in my life) to read one of the inspiring quotes that hang there would lift my spirits, reset my focus, encourage my mind, and change my attitude. These are words I have collected through the years that have brought life and light to my soul and my mind and, at times, awakened my muse, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have. Cut them out and place them somewhere close to your gaze.

What has inspired you? What messages do you have hanging in your office or studio that have helped you through hard times? Please share!

Love and hugs, Saturday Soul
