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.


Quote of the Day Tuesday

"Just because you’re not where you want to be, doesn't mean you’re a failure." -Marc Churnoff


I came across this quote in an article titled 16 Reasons You're Succeeding in the Life (Even If You Don't Feel You Are) while looking on my Facebook feed for things to post yesterday.  I recommend that you read the article for yourself as it is very encouraging...and I'd just want to repost the entire thing here.  It hits a chord in me, especially right now that I'm trying to achieve a goal that isn't happening very quickly or easily.

I'll let the article speak for itself.  But for now, I'm doing what I can with what I have, and trying to get to where I want to be...even if it takes a little while.
