Ahhh… it’s Monday again! This weekend went by too fast and I have a head cold so I did not get near as much accomplished as I needed to. However, I am ready for the new week though. I am working to not procrastinate so much and to be more on top of things. I’m also getting ready for Valentine’s Day this week.
Here is my motivating thought for this week. There are always going to be obstacles that get in your way to success and happiness. They may come in the form of failures, disappointments, missed opportunities, mistakes that you make, physical ailments or emotional trials, or even mean and rude people that try to hurt you. We have to learn to keep our eyes on the prize, on the goal and vision that we have for our lives though. We cannot allow those little stones to turn into stumbling blocks. Focus on what is good and pick yourself up when you are feeling down or when you get knocked down.
“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.” - Andre Maurois
