Your Paper Believes in You

Being a visual artist, I get to buy sketchbooks. Being in what I have taken to be the stationery capital of the world, I get to buy Taiwanese sketchbooks with Hello Kitty and the Eiffel Tower and questionable English on the covers. My most recent sketchbook purchase was for a new project, and I needed sturdy paper that could handle water media and my nervous ambition. The one I bought had excellent paper, but also this quote on the cover:

Never forget

Your presence is a gift to the world.

You’re unique and one of a kind.

Your life can be what you want it to be

Take it one day at a time.

Focus on your blessings, not your troubles.

And you’ll make it through what comes along.

Have belief in your ability.

Persist, have courage, be strong.

Right proper sketchbooks.


So keep writing, I guess. Your paper believes in you.

  1. Maybe I should decorate the outside shell of my laptop PC with Taiwan-esque positive quotes like this. Or decorate the frame around the monitor so that it looks like a cute monster with watery eyes saying, “When you write it’s like a tummy rub to me!”

    Great post, Hannah. Love the cartoon. Love the inspiration.
