Most people keep a notebook full of quotes that pop out, inspire, or simply speak to them. I fill my cork board with a billion little pieces of paper with quotes scribbled on them.
Usually I use a piece of paper as a bookmark specifically for this purpose, and I’ve always planned on typing them up, or taking them into Canva.com to do designy things with them, but that just hasn’t happened yet.
Besides, I kind of like my haphazard collection of inspiration.
So today, for a little #mondaymotivation, I pulled a few of my favorites to feature here.
