Until halfway through the article, I actually loved the quote this author was dissecting. And then I got it. This is where my life has gone so wrong for so many years. When we chase God, excellence often creeps in. But perfectionism is a quick slide to a hellish existence. Wish I had known that years earlier. Sigh!
I think it’s pretty evident by now, but let’s just say, I’m a sucker for a good inspirational quote.
Case in point: Just check the early days of my IG profile. I made those quote art images like they were going out of style.
The kids I nanny for got their school planners the other week, and me, being the school supply junkie that I am, of course wanted to flip through them. Fondle the crisp pages. Smell the freshly printed ink. I geeked out a little.
But let’s be real: the best part of the planners is hands down…the cheesy inspirational quotes.
You know what I’m talking about – the images of a hang glider with something about “soaring;” or a weathered mountain climber boasting about perseverance.
And just for the record, I always tried to be as minimally cliched as possible with my images.
But I digress.
