I finished the second two Little Reminders today (see my last post for the first two):
These were pretty fun to make, and very important ideas to me—in fact, I think I accomplished all four actions in making them.
I can’t stress “dream” enough. I think I would like to hang an entire wall of the word “dream” over and over again (now there’s an interesting home decor choice). What is the point of this life if we aren’t dreaming and striving to make our dreams happen? Even if your dream is as simple as “take a nap two afternoons a week,” that’s worth fighting for.
“Breathe” is about living in the moment—stopping to take a deep breath. I know I am always trying to remind myself to do this more often.
Then the other two, “make things” and “live creatively” are perhaps a little more personal, but I think making things is beneficial for everyone because it gives you an outlet, and living creatively can mean so many things.
What little reminders would you add to this list? I’m not talking about reminders like “lose weight” or “stop biting my fingernails.” I’m talking about reminders that talk about how you really want to live your life. Consider writing or drawing up little signs or post-its and hanging them in places you see multiple times a day.
As I said last post, prints of these little reminders will be for sale in my shop very soon, that is, if the scanning and printing gods are on my side. Also, I am always available for commissions, so if you have a little reminder, a quote, or even a word you would like drawn up in my style, drop me a comment.
