You may have noticed I often use those words in my social media posts and wonder “Why does she do that?” I have a passion for vintage type and ephemera; I often use antique elements like old maps or illustrations in my designs.
I discovered this stray sample of hand lettering that someone was practicing and the phrases spoke to my own practice of art – and life. And, for a scrap of paper that came from the 1900s, the words are so relevant today.
If you look closely, it’s not perfect: you can see where it’s been touched up and reworked, but that’s just like life. Imperfect but we keep persevering.
Here’s how I strive to put those words into intentional actions:
Think and plan with intention.
Bring passion and heartfelt intention.
Create intentionally and with purpose.
For our community wherever needed.
For our future.
Keep grinding and going forward.
