How are you doing? It feels like I’ve put in a lot of effort lately without much to show. Just spinning my wheels with nothing tangible to hold in my hands. Today I talked with my college friend, who always cheers me, despite her dealing with a horrible cold.

So, as Barb did for me, I want these encouraging words to make you feel better. Today’s messages all come from women. Let the ladies reassure us, now and always.

I wholeheartedly ascribe to their calls for more enthusiasm, risk-taking, and imagination.

Colette, French novelist nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature. 1873 – 1954
You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm. — Colette

Erica Jong, American novelist and poet. 1942 –
motivational quotes

And the trouble is if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. Erica Jong

Lauren Bacall, American actress and singer. 1924 – 2014
inspirational quote
Imagination is the highest kite one can fly. Lauren Bacall

Thanks for stopping by,
