Monday Freebie: "Now Is Your Time" Modern Calligraphy Desktop Wallpaper

I posted these words to Instagram a few months back, after reading the excerpt from Shauna Niequist (which is in no way a rare occurrence as I love her work). I've been wanting to create a desktop download for some time, and this is my debut freebie for you! I don't know about you, but I'm prone to letting my desktop fill up with files waiting to be sorted. When I have a clean color with a simple design (some favorite words and a good reminder are a plus), I find myself automatically keeping things a bit more organized. I hope this provides some inspiration for you, too, with these meaningful words from one of my favorites:

Stop every once in awhile and go out to coffee or climb into bed with your journal. Ask yourself some good questions like, am I proud of the life I'm living? What have I tried this month? What have I learned about God this year? I feel more and more like myself with each passing year, for better and for worse, and you'll find that, too. Every year, you will trade a little of your perfect skin and your ability to look great without exercising for wisdom and peace and groundedness, and each year the trade will be worth it. I promise. Now is your time. Become, believe, try.

And in case you're interested in the behind the scenes tools, this modern calligraphy lettering was created by yours truly with a Nikko G nib on my favorite Strathmore everyday paper.
