Elizabeth I is the source of so many wonderful quotes. How do you choose just a few to go on products? This one is apocryphally meant to have been uttered by her on her deathbed. Whether or not that's true, it's a wonderful sentiment that reminds us that we only have this moment, right now, and it's up to us to use our time as if the next moment wasn't guaranteed.
What a great reminder when you're filling up your bag, rushing out the door to get the kids to school, and get to work on time. Or when you're bagging your veggies at Trader Joe's, it's sure to remind you to be grateful for the time you have, right now. To me, this quote reminds me that we do have time, and it's up to us to use it well.
The image of Elizabeth in her coronation gown is by San Diego based artist David Brooks, who is amazing, and captured the essences of these women perfectly. Follow him on instagram at @brooks.doesartworx
Remember that every PURCHASE you make has a PURPOSE. I pledge 10% of my profits to be split between the local historical society in my hometown in Lancaster, PA; and distributed to women refugees who are also entrepreneurs through the Kiva microloans program.
