Keep Calm and Carry On

The following poster was inspired by words which I have been reading every day lately. Please see some of those words quoted beneath the image.



The single most courageous act that anyone can perform, is to take care of the day-to-day, moment-to-moment, sometimes-monotonous tasks of living. Taking care of business requires discipline, consistency, delaying of pleasure, and having faith that it is all worthwhile. The amazing leaps of risk and passion reward us instantly. The small, faith-filled steps of daily maintenance of self, relationship, community, loving and teaching take, at times, enormous discipline and generosity. A daily rhythm of joy and sacrifice must be maintained for life to be complete.


More significant than profound visions and realizations or striking moments of good fortune is the ability to elevate the mundane tasks of existence to their proper place as the supreme acts of creation. — Laura Day, Welcome to Your Crisis
