Motivational Monday


OTHER PEOPLE AND THINGS CAN STOP YOU
TEMPORARILY.
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO IT
PERMANENTLY.
(Zig Ziglar)

I think this is a great quote to start off a new year, don't you? My husband sent it to me as a reminder that it doesn't matter what other people say or don't say, it doesn't matter what happens or doesn't happen, it's up to me to keep going, to keep believing.

It's always up to us to see our dreams and goals through. It's not always easy. Sometimes we might need to adjust the dream a bit or tweak the goal, but keeping the spirit of it alive, the essence of it strong, is all in our hands.  

Let's make this week - this year! - the one where we don't let anyone or anything stop us, where we keep hope alive, where even if we struggle and fall we get back up because we believe. If belief is our backbone, we may sway, we may bow, but we will not break.
