After delving into the stories of my ancestor-women, I saw that these stout-hearted, independent souls had given me the gift of their practical wisdom. I think of it as “moxie.”
Use your head.
Lean into the longing.
Never be a martyr to a mortifying situation.
Throw your arms around uncertainty.
Don’t listen to fools.
Trust your noble heart.
Move your feet — get going!
Turn discontent into action.
(A word to the wise is sufficient.)
I’ve been wanting to incorporate words into my designs — maybe these will work. I brought my sketchbook and black pens to the auto shop this morning and put the long wait time to good use.
