I am trying to choose my next project…I was thinking it would be something for Em’s room. I want to add some wall decor, the only thing hanging in there is the canvas collage I made from her birth announcement pictures. I searched for inspirational quotes (on Pinterest, of course), but as I chose my favorites I realized that they did not only apply to Em…the boys could benefit from them, too.
This Oscar Wilde quote is simple and right to the point. I never want my kids to be afraid of being themselves. I am going to give them a double-dose of this lesson.
Dr. Seuss was so wise! Just about all you need to know about life, you can learn from Dr. Seuss.
I want them to choose happiness…it is pretty simple, you can choose to be happy. It took me a while to realize this, I hope they pick it up faster than I did.
Happiness is contagious! I want to foster in them the ability to do what makes them happy…these days your options are really limitless, you can make a career out of anything…so why not what makes you happy?
Now, I like to decorate with an odd number of items…so I have one last lesson that I will use. E learned this in preschool, I find myself reminding all of them quite frequently 😉
This just might be the centerpiece of the arrangement! I have a couple of pretty large blank spaces to fill upstairs. I have an image in my head…now I need to get to work on making it happen!
Please feel free to suggest more inspirational quotes that would be good little reminders for my babies.
Today’s secret revealed…I could not get a good source on most of these, I am not trying to steal them…I like to give credit where credit is due. Most were added from Tumblr.
