This week, my coworker sent me this quote, and I found it incredibly interesting.
“You learn a lot about someone by what they put on their walls, even when they have very little. What we surround ourselves with usually showcases where we look for inspiration, beauty, and HOPE.” -Ruth Simons, GraceLaced blog
So that got me thinking about what I have on my walls and if my walls really represent what gives me inspiration and hope.
These are my walls, and I'm happy to say that these paintings and pictures do represent my inspiration. Every one of these items means something to me. I've adored Audrey Hepburn for a long time, and I love Europe. And, of course, there's the Mesa, Arizona temple, which is where my husband and I got married.
And see that picture of Jesus looking up at the night sky? One reason I love it is because looking up at the sky is one of my favorite things to do. Plus, my husband bought it for me and had it signed by the artist for Christmas after he saw me admiring it.
But after seeing this, I think I might need more writing inspiration than just one piece of artwork with a typewriter. But check back later for a post about how writers decorate their houses because that's where I'll redeem myself. :)
Take a moment and analyze what you have on your own walls. What does it say about you? Show me in the comments!
I'm an adjunct creative writing professor and freelance writer, but I dream of being a published novelist. This is my journey.
