One of the main things that I love about the New Year is that feeling of promise and optimism and the belief that anything is possible. To keep the momentum going, I like to have an affirmation of some sort at my desk to remind me of this. Nothing too deep and meaningful, just a few words of encouragement for when I'm not feeling so inspired!

Here are a few of my favourites -

Simple and to the point. Available from here.

"High Hopes" jar from the amazingly talented Dottie Angel. I love it!

It isn't hard to get moving if you have this lovely reminder!

 So simple and beautiful, as is all of her work. Available from Paloma's Nest.

My mum always told me that Scrabble was educational! Get your special message from here.

Proof that repetition can be fun -

Available from here


Get yours here

and finally,

 this one just makes me smile! Available from this great Aussie shop, Blacklist Studios.

Some wonderful messages I do believe. I hope that there is something there that inspires you.

As the great Muhammad Ali said -

      "It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen."

I am going to put this in to practise myself this year. I hope you will too!

May your weekend be full of belief in possibility,

  4. I love these, especially the "Breathe and Smile, it's a Brand New Day" photo!

  5. Dottie Angel rules! Have a great weekend!

  6. So good to hear from you all and thanks for your lovely comments! Hope you all had great weekends - why don't they last longer?!

    I love the "Breathe and smile" print. They have some other really good ones too Victoria. There's one that says "Free Your Mind" which I quite like.

    Brit, I love the egg but I think the "High Hopes" jar is my favourite. Tif has just reopened her shop so I hope that she will have some more of these soon. Deb, you are right, Dottie Angel rules big time. She is so inspiring.

    Hugs to you all,
