There was no change in the amount of snow that came falling down the sky. It was the same as last week. Huge snowflakes and miles and miles of snow everywhere you looked. The cardboard box roof was so full of snow now, NOM feared it might come crashing down any minute.
To distract himself he checked his e-mails for the hundreth time today. He hadn’t received any new messages for two whole days which was depressing since he sent some to about 10 different people. Then, when he checked a final time in the evening he was lucky. There were 3 new messages in his inbox. He opened the first one:
We apologize for the delay of your weekly quote. Our computer broke due to the amount of snow and the next day after we finally fixed it the internet was down. We apologize again!
That’s why we have two quotes for you this week.
Enjoy and let yourself be inspired!

ps: The next quote will come just after Christmas. 🙂
you are already awesome
NOM smiled at that. Yes I’m already awesome:)
you choose how you live your life
Wow and that’s another great quote, NOM thought. What do I not like about my life? He thought about this for a while but couldn’t think of anything.
I’m quite happy with my life right now…apart from the snow maybe. He didn’t know what better choices he could make to change that though. But once he thought for a little while longer, a little voice inside his head whispered: Well you could move somewhere else.
It had been a really busy week for NOM. Busy and productive. He had cleaned his whole cardboard box, planted about 40 flowers in the garden, made a vegetable patch next to the cardboard box, called his old friend, wrote a new sesame seed recipe and ordered a camera on e-bay. He really needed a new one. Now all NOM had to do was to write an e-mail to the oven company to ask for a new oven because his old one didn’t heat up anymore. And of course he had to check his mails. That’s what he did first and surprise, surprise: there was an e-mail from the goodquote team!
We hope you had a great week and achieved the things you wanted to achieve. This weeek’s inspiration for you is of course another quote.
Enjoy and let yourself be inspired.

NOM smiled. Funny he just ordered a new camera. The quote was so true; life was indeed like a camera and all the people were the photographers. When he got the new camera he would do just that.
Like always NOM printed out the quote and stuck it onto his ‘quote wall’. He printed out two copies because one was going to go on the camera itself once it arrived. NOM sat back and realxed for a minute. What an awesome life he had!
Any thoughts about this week’s quote?
Another week was over and it was time for a new quote! NOM was excited as usual about reading another good quote. After his bath he raced over to the laptop and checked his e-mails. And there it was: the quote e-mail! NOM quickly opened it:
Here is this week’s inspiration! We hope you like it. Get inspired!
the goodquote team
‘Hmm’, said NOM after reading the quote. ‘Looks like I’m going to have to think about something I want to achieve that scares me…’
And that’s what NOM did. It was a long night and he brainstormed things that he dreamed about that scared him. After what seemed like forever he still couldn’t think of anything. It was then that he decided to wait until that dream came along.
Do you have anything that you dream about achieving, but scares you at the same time?
It had been a very uneventful week for NOM. All he’d pretty much done was to read magazines and books about cooking and occasionally he’d taken a trip to the top of the hill to catch some sunlight.
It was early morning and NOM had just woken up. He got up off his bed and went over to the laptop hoping there would be another quote in the mail.
And there was! When NOM opened the mail program there were 2 new messages. One from his turtle friend Smart and one from the goodquote team! (https://kathialf.wordpress.com/2012/10/13/quotes-and-how-they-inspire-you/)
He opened the quote e-mail first:
This is the second quote and we hope you enjoy it! Let yourself be inspired!

That is true! NOM thought. “And that’s what I will do for the whole of next week…I will subtract all the negative from my life and make room for many positive thoughts and feelings!” NOM printed out the quote as usual and stuck it to the wall. He then opened the other e-mail. It was from his turtle friend Smart.
What’s up? I found this really cool photo and I immeadiately thought of you. I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw it (you have to read the speech bubble, then it’s more funny). And I know how much you love quotes and all. The quote is very true for me too by the way. It happens to me a lot.. (the ‘turtle lying on its back’ part :P)
See ya (and enjoy)
from Smart 🙂
NOM laughed at that. Smart was right. This was funny…He laughed for 5 long minutes and that totally made his day.
Optimism; it’s the best way to see life.
PS: In case you can’t read it, the turtle says: “Omg I’m flying!”
