Writer’s, artist’s affirmation in trying times

Fire by andrew

Keep your creative fires burning with faith and affirmations

Bad economy, shrinking markets, dismal sales – these external events fall like cold rain, dashing our creativity.  Affirmations help, and I’m sending a “thank you” to Cher Gorman for this inspiring quote.  I’ve seen the last sentence quoted, but the entire message is powerful.  May it encourage you in trying times… Janet

“It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
—Theodore Roosevelt

  1. Great quote, Janet. These days we need all the encouragement we can get, even if we have to stand in front of the mirror and repeat our affirmations to our own reflections.
