Day 11: Believe You Can Do It

Part of focusing is believing. 
 If you don't believe you can do it,
you won't be able to focus to do it.

I love this graphic which came from an 1876 Wide Awake Pleasure Book for kids.  This was a collection of stories and poems and illustrations for kids.   It has a treasure trove of fun old drawings. This graphic is from a story appropriately called, "How Miss Chatty Earned A Living."   I couldn't scan this - engravings do weird things on scanners, so I had to take a photo and then I edited it.  Here's the original that I started with, so you can see the full frame.  For you doll collectors, do you see some examples of dolls you own?

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."
