I love encouraging others!
Since I love encouraging others so much, I’m sharing Creative Encouragement Memes for this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge. The quotes are from all over, but I took each photo with my iPhone. Here’s today’s featured letter:
J is for Just Keep Going
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius
I like this quote because it’s so simple and obvious and yet, if you slow down and roll it around in your mind it can stir up a lot of feelings. For instance, in my case it stirs up thoughts about deadlines, missed opportunities, piling my plate too high, feeling rushed to create, not enjoying the process, and comparing my creative progress to others.
Pretty good for a wee little quote by some ancient dude! Guess that’s why we still quote Confucius in the 21st century…
How about you? When you stop and think about this quote for a minute or two, what emotions bubble up for you?
Follow me on Instagram & I’ll follow you back!
If you are on Instagram, I’d be delighted to follow you. Simply follow my photo feed (@TuiSnider) on Instagram and I’ll follow you back! Isn’t Instagram fun? I’ve gone from turning up my nose at the idea of cell phone pictures, to being an avid iPhone photographer. I even had my first gallery show last summer!
What is the April A to Z Blog Challenge?
Each April, bloggers from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.
To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then visit as many other bloggers as you can. In addition to my personal blog here, I’m also writing A to Z posts for the the Story Dam writing community. You can check those out by clicking here: Story Dam’s Writing Quotes & Encouragement
