I love quotes and motivational sayings. They just bring a smile to my face. I identify with them. Usually I'm having a good day and they just remind me about where I was or where I'm headed. They keep me motivated and headed towards my goals. They refocus me. The keep me grounded. When I'm having a bad day, they remind me that everything is not that terrible. I'm just having a bad moment.

I love picking up display pieces at discount stores, motivational cards from greeting card stores, and one of my favorite places to stalk is online at Quote Garden (HERE). If there are other sites out there like that, I would love to hear about them. Please share.

Just like my blog, my new home is filled with tons of quotes and sayings. I have even printed some of my favorites from the web and taped them in visible spots, like my refrigerator.

Do you have a favorite quote?
How do you get motivated
or keep yourself focused??


  1. Ah, the Thoreau "go confidently" quote is my favorite of all time!

    I actually have a tattoo on my chest that has two swallows carrying a ribbon that says "Go Confidently"

  2. I like "You choose your hard" to remind me that everyone has something to overcome. When running, I often think "I can do this."

  3. Try Pinterest.com for some cute Quotes and Motivation!! But beware...It's very addicting! lol :)
