Inspiring myself

Monday, April 22, 2013

I love all the "fitspo" and other motivational graphics out there. My desktop background right now is simply, "Yes you can." It reminds me that, even though it can be tough to accomplish my dreams, I can. I can finish my homework. I can say no to a piece of cake. I can go to bed at a reasonable hour. I can take it all one step at a time.

I have often thought it would be neat to design some of those myself. Tonight, I tried for the first time. The background is a photo I found online; I did not see any copyrights, so I borrowed it. I then tried to come up with a short, positive phrase I could repeat to myself until it become engrained in my brain. One I felt could help guide me if I used it regularly. This is the result.

(Please don't tell me if you don't like it... I am not confident in doing things like this and am nervous like crazy just to post it. emoticon Do tell me though if you find a copyright for it. I don't want to steal someone's work.)
