Quote of the Day Tuesday

"A strong person is not one who doesn’t cry; a strong person is one who cries for a moment openly, and then gets up and fights again for what they believe in." -Marc Churnoff


I was struggling in finding a quote for today.  And then Marc and Angel did it again.  This quote came from another article I wish I could just put here for all of you to read.

Many of their articles hit home for me, as did this one.  I had a moment relating to this quote late last week.  I was overtired from working, and nothing felt like it was going right.  I had to cry and get it all out of my system, and then go to bed.  I do feel stuck, but that doesn't mean I'm not on my path to my end goal.  This is all just a stepping stone.

I woke up to the rain this morning.  Instead of working, I wish I was at home with coffee and knitting and art.  But just because I want that, doesn't mean I ought to disdain what I'm doing now.  Soon I'll have the time to do just what I want, but for now, I have to sacrifice my time to get there.  I've started trying to get a little more art into my day by doing the Spoon Challenge from Spoonflower.  I really want to get better at drawing things and using my Wacom Tablet so I can start making designs for fabric to put on there.  I also think it might be time to revamp my goals list.  But that's for tomorrow.
