Here at The Novel Turtle, we want to help you find and create the life that you’ve always wanted. We want to help you navigate and understand the inner world that we humans all share; our hopes, our dreams, and all of the emotions and feelings that go along with them. We want to encourage you to live your happiest life.

When you are doing what you love it shows, people are drawn to it, and they are inspired by it.

We hope you will join us. Some of our posts are designed to simply make you smile. Others are to help you get your creative juices flowing; to make you more aware of yourself and the world around you. Opening our creative channels allows us to learn more about who we are, to see more of what we like and don’t like; it allows us to open our minds to a world of possibilities. Many of our posts are designed to help you search within yourself, to find your strengths and weaknesses, and to use those to make the world a happier place. Take what resonates, leave what doesn’t.

When we meet others that inspire us, we’ll do a Q&A Session with them to pass that inspiration on to you. In this way, we can all learn from one another.
