I’ll admit, I’m a pretty wound-up person. Keeping stress at bay can be tough sometimes, so I try to remember these words when I’m juggling a million things. They help me remember to breathe and to keep plugging away. (You can find the above print, and a zillion other cute and motivating sayings for your office or home here.)
Also, at some point in high school, I came across a quote from Goethe that stuck with me, and still rings in my ears: “Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.” These words have been the spark for many of my big dreams—writing a novel included.
