Day 17 #QuotableQuotes
“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” Perhaps less of a quote and more of a question, but it has stuck with me because it forces me to respond.
There are so many quotes that inspire and motivate me to be my best. But this is one I have chalked onto my door to be seen as I leave the house. A reminder to not let fear control my life, to not be scared of opportunity or failure, to go after what I want, to be brave, to follow my heart and to just live! It inspires me to be fearless!
By fearless, I don’t think we need to negate the fear just don’t let it control us. Do not let fear stop you from doing great things or living a life without regrets.
This is an old photo courtesy of my son who at thirteen decided he wanted to learn to fly, and then did so!! No fear, no overthinking, no self doubt. I’m learning a lot from my kiddo. Wish I could be as fearless as he is.
Life is a lot sweeter when you DO, rather than just THINK about what you could do.

Day 17 of the #GetToKnowMe challenge, the topic is #QuotableQuotes
I always have a big poster of this cartoon up at the #ooak_toronto show, and I'll likely have it up for #ooakx18 as well because it stops people in their tracks. They tend to stop and then quote it to each other, followed by, "I do that all the time!".
#QuotableQuotes .....this is the #gettoknowme challenge today. My Mum is British and so, seems to have a number of weirdly funny quotes that, I assume, are based on her history/childhood. My all-time favourite quote of hers is...."Worst things happen at sea!". I guess the premise is that as bad as things get, they would be much worse at sea.
Another related quote I like to remember is..."It is what it is". I see both of these having to do with factors outside of our control...whatever happens could be worse and that sometimes you just have to accept this and build a plan to move forward. This becomes relevant to my art career when I am embarking on a new adventure and something goes wrong. I try not to get too stressed and remind myself that I am smart enough to find a solution even if that was not the original plan because....it would be worse if I was at sea!
