Pin It Wednesday: Words to Live By


I've been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting about my life and my blog lately, so the theme of "words to live by" really spoke to me when I sat down to put this week's Pin It post together. I think we all need gentle reminders from time to time. Here are this week's pins...


3. Speak Kindly print by Studio Mela.
I have two prints from Studio Mela. Make sure you check out her other stuff... fantastic.

4. Make Time for Your Art print by Artsyville.

I think sometimes we need to step back, stop beating ourselves up, and treat ourselves as we would treat others or would want others to treat us. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Hopefully today's pins will inspire me (and some of you) to turn that around.

I really enjoyed the inspiration today. It has been really hot here so this morning I was able to open my windows and breathe. I am a happy person today. I love the quiet of the mornings.

Every single one of these is lovely! And each has a powerful message. I love having wise words surround me I'm trying hard to not let my house look like a book threw up all over it with quotes hung everywhere. ;)

Hi Gwen..words are very powerful aren't they? They have the power to create or destroy, to build or to break down. These are lovely 'building' words! By the way your bapron would make a lovely top for a child on a hot summer's day. That blue fabric you've used is very cool.

Love them all. And I agree, we definitely need to give ourselves a break and treat ourselves better. Thanks for the reminder!

Love all of these quotes. But, I think I love the most what you said at the end..."I think sometimes we need to step back, stop beating ourselves up, and treat ourselves as we would treat others or would want others to treat us." Wow. I think I needed to hear that. I am always trying to treat others how I would want to be treated or at the best that I can...but, myself? Hmmmm. This is definitely making me think. Thank you Gwen.
