10 Inspirational Quotes 

1. We become what we think about. -- Earl Nightingale

9. Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you are willing to close your heart over it. When your heart starts to close just say, “No. I’m not going to close. I’m going to relax. I’m going to let this situation take place and be there with it.” Honor and respect the situation, and deal with it. By all means deal with it. Do the best you can. But deal with it with openness. Deal with it with excitement and enthusiasm. No matter what it is, just let it be the sport of the day. In time, you will forget how to close. No matter what anyone does, no matter what situation takes place, you won’t even feel the tendency to close. You will just embrace life with all your heart and soul. -- Michael A. Singer

10. Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist when he grows up. -- Pablo Picasso

Today I thought I would switch it up and share these quotes that I have found some inspiration from lately. I just got back from New York and was feeling especially encouraged to share. Getting to travel to my favorite city for work is one of the best gifts. It's a city of anxiety, anger, bitter cold at times, but the amount of creativity, hope, ambition, imagination + opportunity will aways trump any negative views for me. Putting together some NYC posts for you guys soon. Stay tuned.  Hope you enjoyed. :)
