I have a confession to make. When I am having a bad day, I visit the Quotes board on Pinterest.
I scroll through until I find a quote that strikes a chord with me, and I pin it.
I guess you could say, I love an inspirational quote. And I don't think I'm alone here.
Of course, not all quotes are created equal. Some are just silly or trite or both.
Like the saying, "Everything happens for a reason." I find that to be not only trite, but just not true. And not helpful.
But a quote like, “Let your past make you better, not bitter,” I am a big fan of.
It may be a little hokey, but nonetheless, good advice. These words say, move on. Do better things. Be a better person. Let all that bad stuff go.
It is good, if not necessarily easy advice.
Another one I am particularly fond of is, “Wake up. Kick ass. Repeat.” I find this phrase often floating around my head.
As a small business owner who also works a full-time day job, it sometimes seems like there is a never-ending to do list. This saying reminds me to put my head down and do the work.
Sand that dresser. Check out that new thrift store. Write that blog. And then wake up and do it all again the next day.
So whenever I am feeling overwhelmed or disheartened, I return to my “Well said” board on Pinterest. I scroll through my inspirational quote pins, and I start to feel better.
I mean, we could all use a little more inspiration in our lives, right?
With that in mind, I have been working with the incredibly talented Jeni Adkisson on a new project for the shop.
Adkisson created the logo for the Vintage Modern shop, so she obviously has some serious graphic design skills.
Within the next week or so, be on the lookout for some new inventory to be hitting the Vintage Modern shop’s shelves.
In the meantime, don’t let Monday or Tuesday or Thursday get you down.
Just keep kicking ass out there, friends. We promise to do the same.
