Inspiration

We all have those days when we look for some inspiration to get a jump start. For some it may be found in nature, books, art, conversations, solving a work problem, meeting a challenge or creating something new.
Today I had a conversation with a neighbor who just returned from taking an art class. She proudly showed me her completed oil painting. And it had been 45 years since she last attempted painting with oils. Since her project turned out so well it motivated her to take on a new project. And I might add she was so pleased with her success!
Inspiration can be found in a multitude of places. Sometimes when I read quotes the words spark a new idea or a new way to think about something for me. Perhaps some words inspire you to change your thinking, reshape your attitude or just be a reminder of your goals?
Today I am offering you some inspirational quotes I came across. A few have a humorous edge so hope to bring a smile to your face.

Motto to Live By
Life should not be a journey to a grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Whoo... Hoo... what a ride!"

Enjoy Your Day
