Monday Mottoes – #76

edccb3833f1bec0a7a94f3e4a590a90bWhere there’s life, there’s hope. That’s not the motto for the day, yet it bears repeating because, oftentimes, we give up on ourselves, and we really shouldn’t.

Look at the people who have extreme challenges, whether paraplegics, those who have war wounds, or are missing limbs since birth…. They learn to type tumblr_m8epgpD0Zx1qastsxo1_r7_250with a stylus in their mouth, own a dog who provides assistance, buy a motorized wheelchair or custom-made clothes. What’s our excuse?

Most of us possess two arms, two legs, a brain that functions normally or even semi-normally, a body that serves us well, a pleasant demeanor and personality, the ability to learn new skills. As they say, we’ve got it goin’ on.

Which brings us to today’s motto:

“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.” ~Robert C. Gallagher

There can be a fear about trying new things and ultimately, we have to give it our best shot. Try it. Step out. You’ll never know if you don’t try.

And why shouldn’t you succeed? You may not win a marathon the very first time you go out for a jog, but that doesn’t prevent you from starting. Every step forward is another building block in your life, and yes, even tripping counts as forward movement.

There’s a path before you and the sooner you embark on it, even if not in the exact right direction, it’s still progress. So get going.

Happy Monday, everyone!
