I’m not a fan of inspirational quotes. Way too rah, rah, cheerleader for me.
Truth be told, I find most of these tiny slices of wisdom annoying.
I read quotes like the ones below and think:
“So … this is my fault?”
“Right, like it’s that easy.”
“You’ve heard of depression, right?”
I’m skeptical as to whether these facile bromides help anyone, but the I Can Do This attitude they tout … to borrow from Martha Stewart, “It’s a good thing.”
As a writer, before you ever open a Word document some part of you has to believe I can do this. In my case, it was more like a maybe I can do this … baby steps 🙂
If you tell yourself you can’t, you won’t.
Attitude is everything.
