Mondays, Maggie Muses: Success vs. Fear


Jack Canfield

I’ve always considered myself an optimist. I believe that positive thinking can help you succeed in life. But, unfortunately for me,  I am also a worrier.  Sometimes the worrier in me needs to keep in check, so I turn to my favorite quotes to keep reminding me to just lose the fear. Because fear is where the worry thoughts come from, don’t they? Fear of trying, fear of failure, fear of what people think. Training your brain to be positive is hard work. So my resolution this year is to stay positive, lose the fear and let success in.  How about you? What helps you stay positive?

Mondays, Maggie Muses: New Year and Inspirational Typography

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.

Hello!  I’m back.  I hope you all had a great holiday season!  We had a quiet, simple one and that was perfectly fine with me.

Usually around this time comes the opportunity to reflect on the year past but also to look forward toward the new one as well.  It is a great time  to remind yourself of what is important to you and to affirm your aspirations. I have collected my favorite quotes and sentiments on Pinterest and decided to share a few with you.  Here’s to wishing you an inspiring 2013!


Loose your fear.


Work with your hands.


Be grateful.


Live simply.


Collect future memories.


Believe in yourself.
