"quotes" - 2

Here is another quote that I really liked from my planner. It's not this week's but I didn't really love this week's so I looked at some of the quotes that came from before I started using the planner.


I really like this one. I can't exactly put into words how it makes me feel. Hopeful maybe? I like the message that you can chose what kind of person you are and what you want to do with your life. And I like that it says "creating", it makes me thing of making things :) Like you are creating yourself the way you would create a work of art...a little bit at a time.

How do you guys feel about this one?

  5. I like the idea of, rather than going out in the world to find what it is that makes you YOU, you get to create yourself from scratch. You don't need to find it, you get to form yourself out of bits and pieces from inside and out. And you can always change it/yourself.

  10. i like this one a lot... i tend to always wonder "who i am" and when i'll "find myself" but i really come up with anything good. creating myself sounds so much better! esp because i love creating things, too!

  13. I LOVE this quote, thank you for sharing it! It feels SO appropriate that you shared it today (for me) because on my drive home I was having thoughts along the same lines: I was thinking that recently, I've been letting my current situation in life define my being, instead of inventing who I want to be, and forcing situations to adjust to the me that I want to BE. I've been eagerly waiting for my hunny to get home so I could discuss the idea with him (he loves such conversations) and I have to share this quote with him -- I think it'll really speak to him too.

  17. I think that's an awesome sentiment. And so true... That you have the power and ability within you to be whatever you choose, and as artists, crafters, makers we have a vehicle through which to make manifest our world. What we make and how we make is a reflection of ourselves that is more truthful than maybe some other forms of self-expression. Maybe then by visualising ourselves this way we do actually 'find ourselves' in the end...
