Be Bold




I was working in my sketchbook last night on some new designs, and I came across something I had written in it a few months ago. On the very first page of my sketchbook, I wrote the following:


Be Bold

Be Thankful

Be Quiet

Be Original

Be Spontaneous

Be Punctual

Be a Star

Be Young

Be Loving

Be Crazy

Be Loud

Be Random

Be Adorable

Be Unique

Be Daring

Be Obnoxious

Be Yourself




I don't know who the author is. I even did some googling last night to see if I could find who the quote is attributed to, but no such luck. I happened to come across the quote in (of all places) one of those airline catalogs while I was on my way to NYC for the Quilters Take Manhattan event back in August. It was on some sort of plaque as I recall, and as soon as I read it, I grabbed my brand-new-at-the-time sketchbook and scribbled all of it down. Jeff thought I was crazy, but I'm glad I did it.




I've looked at those words a few times since then, but when I saw them again last night, they just struck me for some reason.







They are definitely, for me, words to live by.

Isn't it amazing how something really hits you when you need it? It's like the quote on my "everyday" blog. It really made me change direction and move forward with a new outlook.

Love your list. Especially "Be Obnoxious." As they say, nice women rarely make history!
