a different kind of inspiration

Monday, October 04, 2010

Time to inspire myself.
I have a bathroom in the basement, I started to paint it this funky orange (thanks Habitat for Humanity restore- shameless plug) and have now decided that I am going to paint or write motivation and inspirational thoughts on the walls. This is no dream bathroom that I am "ruining". This is my kind of teenage dorm basement camp bathroom.
Now, every day when I'm getting ready for work, getting ready to go out and face the world, or just changing that cat box, I can look at some words that will give me instant inspiration.
Do you have a poem, saying, or something written that motivates you? Let me know and you just might "make the wall'!

    I saw this one today :D “Failure is success if we learn from it.” - Malcolm S. Forbes

I look forward to seeing your finished project, it sounds fun! :) I wonder if you will be better off using paint pens instead of regular Sharpies? I didn't know what your total idea was, but if you were going to use Sharpies, you might want to see if that's going to be an issue to paint over. I know some things show through paint, so just for the future if you wanted to paint over it, you might want to try it on a scrap of wood or something first. Good luck!

    Thank you!
Consider your quote added- I think it will look good in sharpie, just need to pick the color

    What a fun idea! emoticon My favorite is probably too long, though:

There is a choice you have to make in everything you do and you must always keep in mind the choice you make makes you.

We will, of course, need pictures... emoticon
