It’s that time of year again when students are sitting exams, getting ready to leave home later in the summer, heading off on their travels or preparing to start new jobs.
Fresh starts and adventures aren’t just for young people of course, it’s important to be open to new experiences and challenges throughout our lives. I love David Weinbaum’s quote ‘The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings‘, to me it sums up the importance of staying curious and pursuing our goals, no matter how scary they sometimes might seem.
The thing that unites us all though, no matter what age we are, is the anxiety we can feel in the face of change. Fear and excitement are two sides of the same coin and when a big change is coming up we can swing from one extreme to another.
At times like this a few words of encouragement can make all the difference. Personally I love searching for quotes on Pinterest, I could spend hours looking at all the inspiring words on there.
This is what motivated me to start a new range of ‘quote’ cards. They’re designed for all those occasions when we need some words of reassurance to help us to stay on track. I’ve started off with these four, there’ll be more soon in different colour schemes and some of them will be available as prints too.
I hope you like them, and if you’re considering making a big change in your life remember this quote by Suzy Kassem ‘Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will‘.
