I really love rainy Sundays. It truly sets the mood for me to stay indoors with a nice cup of passion tea and a good read. Today, while indulging my bibliophile soul, I came across a lovely quote:
“Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.”
– Philip Larkin from The Trees
This line is part of a poem called the Trees from the book High Windows by Philip Larkin. The whole poem is quite a refreshing piece but this line particularly caught my attention. Despite what you may be going through, or whether or not things are going your way, you must always have the courage to begin afresh!
Just like the rain that refreshens everything it touches, we all have the ability and courage to wash ourselves and our spirits and begin again. Being a typical creative mess, I am always experimenting and starting over eliminating any traces of fear of failure. However, at times, that fear does manage to creep up behind me every now and then and stalls me from experimenting. This truly dulls my spirit and I end up not creating for days at times. This is why I always devote my Sundays to my creative soul and read. Reading helps me freshen up my being and start afresh, come Monday.
Thus, today, I created 4 desktop background images with the quote and decided to share with my lovely readers. I mean what’s better than being inspired and sharing that inspiration?
“Begin afresh, afresh, afresh…”

I am not gonna lie, I have this series set on a loop for my desktop background as it acts like a constant inspiration booster, reminding me to never be afraid of beginning afresh 🙂
I hope you enjoyed these and that they inspired you as much as they did me.
