I rarely talk about my full time job, but I spend a lot of time (at least 40 hours a week) in my little office. Most of the day is spent in front of a computer typing +80 page appraisal reports; I often describe myself as a technical writer. Sometimes the monotony gets to me, but I’m usually pretty content to spend my day in my own space surrounded by my choice of music & my own little trinkets & my post-its of quotes I adore.

And today I’m going to share my quotes with you. These words get me through the hours or the weeks or the months.

    1. I haven’t read anything by C.S. Lewis other than a few book from the Narnia Chronicles. I definitely keep putting his name on my mental to-read list, but I haven’t picked anything up yet! I’ll go add that on Goodreads, though! Then I won’t forget!


  1. I have the scripture from Philippians right on my white board in front of me at work 🙂
    I am a quote NERD – I cant ever get enough of them. Words have power.

    I also keep on my desk at work the words “Whatever you focus on increases”… keep an eye on the positive!


    1. I told my grandma that was my favorite scripture and THE NEXT WEEK she gave me a gorgeous black and white plaque with the verse. It was totally my style and I was so impressed by her efficiency and generosity! I like that little reminder about productivity!!


    1. Ha, I feel like the Tina Fey quote is so brutal and crass, but I just really love the point she makes! Every once in a while one of these quotes catches my eye and it ends up being JUST what I needed to read in that moment 🙂


  2. i don’t have any quotes up around my office / desk womp womp. sometimes i change my desktop one though. love the lion king one, and the maya angelou & tina fey ones are spot on!


    1. Your desktop counts! I’m so obsessed with keeping things neat and tidy- I’m constantly re-writing the quotes I have around or condensing and moving them. Haha!
