#MicroblogMondays 31: Inspirational Quotes

I’ll admit that I usually don’t read reviews of my books. I’m afraid that doing so will change me. And change is bad. So… I avoid it like an ostrich*.
But I was scrolling past a review the other day and this line caught my eye: “You’ll do well in the future so keep going.” This stranger managed to say the exact words I needed to hear at the exact time. I’m not ashamed to admit that I wrote out the words on a post-it note and stuck it over my desk. If that person is reading this post, thank you.
Maya Angelou was correct when she said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” That reviewer’s words made me feel grounded.
Two inspirational quotes for the price of one… post.
I do love to surround myself with well-written reminders, the sorts of words that get under your skin exactly when you need them to. So leave your favourite inspirational quote in the comment section.
*I’m aware that ostriches don’t actually bury their heads in sand.
