I'm positive!

I'm no Stuart Smalley, but it is nice to be reminded that you are good enough and smart enough and doggone it people like you!

Of course, you don't need Mr. Smalley's book on your coffee table to get this kind of daily affirmation. Here are some pick-me-ups that are pretty enough to be out on display!

First up, the beautiful art of vol25's shop on Etsy, a unique blend of graphic design and collage. The saying on this print should make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside:

The next print is by Dylan Fareed. Even though the artist made this print after a break-up, I think the affirmation transcends relationships. It actually makes me think of my friends and how good I feel when we are together!

You will find quite an assortment of feel-good prints at laurageorge's Etsy shop, my favorite of which is this print. This affirmation is something I think everyone needs to hear every once in awhile, even if it's not entirely true! You can also find a 4-pack of adorable prints in the same theme here.

The next print is by artzink and is a reminder to do quite possibly the hardest thing in the world:
If that $40 price tag is hard to swallow, I imagine it wouldn't be hard to make something like it in true DIY fashion. Maybe change up the message to something that makes you smile, like "just keep swimming" from Finding Nemo!

Another of my favorite Etsy artists, theloveshop, makes the list with this modern and to-the-point print:

I'm sure I'm not the only one who needs a little pick-me-up when faced with the morning mirror. This fun vinyl decal can be stuck to your mirror to give all your days a fairy tale ending -- or, in my case, beginning!

And, of course, this list would not be complete without the effortless "Keep Calm" print:
No matter what the art you choose says about you, make sure it means and says a lot to you!


  1. Keep Calm and Carry On! :) Words to live by.

  2. I was looking for a birthday gift. You helped me find it. Thanks. :)
