Last week my husband and I went to see Disney's Tomorrowland - my inspiration is always coming from movies these days  - and I loved its message.

Optimism can change the world. One person who never gives up can make the world a better place. We can have that attitude and be that person if we choose to be! 

I've always felt that optimism and positive vibes can get you far in life. I know through experience! When I have a positive attitude things always tend to work out. They're not always perfect, but they always work out!

Save/download this 8x10 graphic, print it, hang it, look at it often and remember how your tiny actions can make a difference. Focus on the good things in this world and worry less about the bad. Push forward through life with a positive attitude and a smile on your face! I'll be trying to do the same, because life truly is GOOD. There is so much to be happy about! 

Speaking of HAPPY things, I promised a giveaway after reaching 100 likes on my Facebook page and I'm thinking of doing it this week or next week! I'll be giving away some of my favorite things, so keep your eyes peeled for it! 

Let's give off positive vibes this week and share them with everyone around us!

Today's graphic I created is a quote from the movie Turbo. This movie is about an unnaturally fast snail who wants to race in the Indi 500. He ends up winning only to emphasize that "No dream is too big, and no dreamer too small." I found it pretty inspiring. If a cartoon snail can win a race, surely I can accomplish anything, too. In all seriousness, though!

How often do we have dreams that we never try to reach?  

I admit that all of my life I have been a dreamer. I have dreamed about the things I could have, the places I could go and the things I could accomplish. They almost never progress from just that, a dream. I've always thought I was too _______ or not enough _______ to accomplish the things I dreamed about.  I didn't know if anyone believed in me and, the most detrimental, I didn't believe in myself.

Since marrying my wonderful husband, I have started to realize that my goals and dreams are achievable. When you write them down, set up a plan and work your hardest you can accomplish anything! I'm starting to believe how possible it is for us to achieve all of our dreams! It's a wonderful feeling. I can truly say I believe in myself and that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to!

So today I want to encourage you to reach for your dreams, no matter how BIG your dream feels or how small you may feel. Anything is possible when you truly believe in yourself! Here's to reaching higher and dreaming bigger than we ever have before!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and that you enjoy this beautiful day as well!
Lots of love!

Motivational Quote || Designed by A Dash of Salter

For any of you who are feeling unimportant in a world of comparison and competition, I want you to know, you are capable of amazing things.  

I'm constantly feeling less than I am, questioning that I can accomplish my wide eyed goals, and wondering what others think of my trying efforts. Just a few days ago I was having one of those feeling moments. Those moments where I question if the things I want to learn and accomplish are even possible. I wonder if I'll ever be worth something to this world. If I'll make a difference. 

Then I watch my son, learning and growing. He obeys a simple request, and I start to realize that my work as a mother is so important. I say work because that's EXACTLY what it is. Constantly trying your best to be an example of good habits and teach your children new things is exhausting. It's also extremely rewarding. Nothing lights my life more than when my son shows me he understands a new concept. I want to be a good mother, but I know I am also capable of more than that. 

I can obtain what I want to become and accomplish. I can do the things I love. Writing, designing, discovering, uplifting, styling, sharing, documenting. Most of all, I know I can do amazing things. I can reach the potential I have yet to realize. I can have the perspective to see past those who judge, criticize, and hold me back. I am stronger than anyones words or opinions. I can rise above my doubts and the doubts of others. 

This quote is a reminder of that. Never give up. Never lose sight of your dreams. Be you and know it's the best thing you can be. It's what I want to be. It's what I want for all of you, too! Be yourself. Believe in yourself. You are capable of unbelievable things, and no one can hold you back! So today, push a little harder. Give a little more, and work for what you want to accomplish. You deserve it.

Pick the graphic you like best, pin it, print it, use at as your iPhone wallpaper, remember that you can do it and share it with someone you love. Let's lift each other up instead of dragging each other down.
