These are great for times when you just need to get away from the project for a short while.

However, on those occasions when I reach a point where I don't feel like I'm making progress, I stop and walk away from the project for a while. Days, weeks, months, and some times even years. I always have multiple projects on the go, so I switch gears and tackle something else for a bit. It changes my mental energy and keeps me productive.

“Unconditional Love is a perpetual emotion machine. It inspires us to include others. The longer I am bathed in its radiance, the more I find myself looking at others with an open heart. I can look past their faults and love them. I can say, “I may not like the things you do, but I love you.”
Rosa Arcade, Notes to My Younger Self

“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.”
Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah
