This week has been one of THOSE weeks. It seemed that for every step I took forward, I fell back two. Getting words on the page was a constant battle. Getting things crossed of my to-do list was frustratingly slow.
I found this quote and tried to apply it every day. Just begin.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it, boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now…
… attributed to Goethe –
I found I couldn’t look beyond the task that was immediately in front of me or I felt overwhelmed.
Inch by inch
Life’s a cinch.
Yard by yard
Life is hard.
And dare I add?
Mile by mile
It’s downright vile.
But I survived. The sun is shining. The birds singing and the flowers still blooming. The petunias are looking fine–a reminder of staying the course–persevere. They’ve survived summer heat and fall frosts. I’m hoping they last a couple more weeks.
