Monday mornings can be exciting or drudgery, depending upon your perspective to the upcoming week. Once in awhile, we all need a nudge or a strong shove to get back on track. No matter how disciplined or focused you might be, we all may stray from our mission at hand.

Today, I share with you one of my favorite quotes. All I know about this quote is that it is attributed to Japan and I like it very much! I hope it motivates you and reminds you to keep on moving forward.

“Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid of standing still.”

Bend in the wind! It is far better than breaking.

Bend in the wind! It is far better than breaking.

Okay, while the quote does refer to fear, and fear isn’t usually a healthy emotion except in times of sensing danger. I think the quote promotes the importance of keeping up the progression of doing our very best and maintaining a momentum in our lives. Please give it some consideration. Have a great week!
