Earlier this year, I spoke at the New Year Inspirational Media Brunch organized by fellow blogger Tamera Sutton. I presented this photo of me, gazing optimistically, with a quote by Nelson Mandela.
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”
The words cover me like a suit of armor.  Hopeful words that could fight my fears. I flourished in those words and also realized they were meant to be shared and help others flourish. Words can be powerful and often imprinted on T-shirts to test their power. With all the graphic tees out there, I still wanted to design a few myself.

With the help of some inspiring women in Memphis, here are three other quotes as three imaginary t-shirt designs that personally keep them motivated.

 Melissa Sweazy - Filmmaker, Writer, and Photographer.
"I like this quote from Anne Lamott. Boiling down a larger quote on having confidence in your writing to this that applies to everyone - "Don't look at your feet to see if you are doing it right. Just dance."

What would your T-shirt say?
