The Poster Post
I’ve spent a lot of time in the guidance counselor’s office. Oh, not because I was in trouble – I was just enrolling the kids in their new schools. While I was there I made a few observations.
Have you ever noticed that in school and government offices there seem to be an abundance of motivational or inspirational posters? Raise your hand if you haven’t seen the poster of the cute kitten hanging on a clothesline by its claws with the caption “Hang in there!”. There are a whole bunch of these posters and some of them can be fun and/or cute. I’ve taken the liberty of compiling some of my favorites. So here we go.
The first poster gives me hope. If the monkey can get it, we can all get it, right?
There’s nothing worse than a family outing when someone is in a grumpy mood (OK, I’m working on my attitude, give me a break, will ya?)
After years of feeling left out, I finally embraced the message of this poster.
Being a parent will drive home the message of this next poster real fast.
Too bad I didn’t realize this one when I was young and had lots of time. If only I could have saved time in a bottle. Jim Croce said it best.
When I was in school I couln’t seem to get inspiratation to do my reports until the night before. I still have that same relationship with deadlines.
I’ve got to remind myself of this next one every day!!!
Notice the Kitty’s clueless face and the bandage on its paw in contrast to the grin on the fish’s face? I don’t want to be that Kitty! In fact I put a lot of effort into not being that Kitty on a daily basis. (Whether or not I succeed is another matter)
As much as I am a skeptic, have an irreverent sence of humor, and don’t like to take anything too seriously, I still am an incurable romantic and hopelessly optimistic. Therefore, I had to include the final poster.
If you have any favorite motivational, inspirational, amusing, or wise sayings… please do share!
All posters can be found here (Sorry about the poor resolution)
