I accept the challenge graciously passed to me by renedith at Branching Out. I may be a bit late but I accept the challenge!
Challenge Rules: Write 3 quotes, for 3 consecutive days and nominate 3 new bloggers.
Day 1 – Quote 1:
One of my favorite quotes encourages me every day to persevere, it goes like this:
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do” Eleanor Roosevelt
This quote inspires me to keep going daily putting aside all the shoulda, woulda, coulda and move past my inner voice shouting “I CAN’T!” I’ve had this quote written on a little card that has been on my desk or on my cubicle wall for the last 20 years or more. I get used the card wherever it’s placed in my cubicle and no longer see it. But then something weird happens.
When I need the push or motivation, it stands out from the rest of the work detritus. Call it karma. Call it the subconscious becoming conscious. I call it the spirit. The spirit guides and encourages. It calls a siren song I cannot always hear but little reminders pop forward to pull me back on track. When I find my quote, I move it to a new spot to reminds me daily to push past what I think I cannot do. It’s a game I play with my spirit because eventually the note blends back into the background. When I need it again, I know it will pop forward. That is the way the spirit works

No worries. It’s a busy world out here. I’m still adjusting to the blogosphere myself. Been wanting to do this blog for a while but having trouble with the timing. So I completely understand. Thank you for the encouragement and the challenge. I did enjoy it. 🙂
