Pause and Revitalize #1

I’m offering you a moment to pause and revitalize.

Sometime before Christmas I signed up for Melanie Duncan’s The Power of Pinning training  because I needed to learn about Pinterest. I created an account for Iris Abbey and set up my Pinterest boards showcasing our company’s interests.

Of the several boards Melanie recommended, I jumped at her suggestion for a Quotes/Wise Words board to post encouraging — revitalizing — statements.

In my previous life I would print out business-card sized motivational quotes and hand them out to my students. I usually had 3 or 4 available, depending the kind of advice needed.

After posting several quotes designed by others, I realized I could design my favorite quotes using Canva. Easy. Fast forward and I hope to offer a few of these quotes each week, in the hope they offer you strength and grace.
