I'm starting a new project - it's call #The100DaysProject. You can read more about it here.
My friend Beth turned me onto it. Thanks Beth!
As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted my project to involve quotes. I pretty quickly settled on using a title I used for a Postcard Swap a while back - #100DaysOfWordsOfInspiration. You can check it out in my Instagram Feed.
All that was settled in my mind about three weeks ago. As I thought about how to begin I started to look up quotes. I can lose myself for hours reading quotes, cruising quote boards on Pinterest, and reading a good book looking for little nuggets of wisdom. I quickly realized that where I would need inspiration in the messy middle of this project was on the art and display of the quote - not on finding the quotes. So, I actually started writing down a list of all the different creative ways that I could showcase a quote. That's the part I'll struggle with later on - when the newness wears off and the project loses its excitement for me. Any effort of 100 days - any effort at all that's more than a simple little task can turn tedious quickly.
Starting with the hard part is a tactic I'm using a lot lately - get the most important things - the hardest things - the things I'm dreading the most done first. I write that now, realizing today that's not even remotely what happened. I ended up working on something I personally find quite easy today - not on the thing I planned to do which is the hard stuff.
As the quote says..."Keeping together is progress..." I am a continuous work in progress.
Do you have a quote you'd like me to showcase during this project? If so - leave it in the comments. Feel free to leave more than one.
