So here it is again the 15th of the month and time for my series, Quote of the Month.
I usually don’t have a hard time finding a quote that inspires me. But this last month has kicked my ass. In too many ways to list but one of the major things on my mind is this blog. I love this website and everything we are trying to do with it. Sometimes it feels like I’m not doing enough or its a travel blog, are we traveling enough?
So today when I ran across this little quote by a favorite author I knew it was meant for me.
Short, sweet and to the point.
Sometimes that is just what I need to remind myself…………. Little by Little, One Travels Far.
In fact I’m going use it as my mantra for this month. When the little voice of doubt bubbles up to remind me of all the things and ways I could be doing better.
This is what I shall say as raise my figurative Gandalf staff above my head and slam it into the ground
“YOU SHALL NOT PASS”. FYI-that is a favorite quote and move of all the children in the house, especially when we get new walking sticks. It is the test of all walking sticks- to pretend to be Gandalf and see if that stick was meant for you. Goodness I love my kids- they never cease to put a smile on my face!The short and sweet poetic sound of this quote is one that I just might end up using for longer than the month.
It is also an all encompassing quote, you know one that can be applicable in many areas.
For instance, I can use it when I feel upset that I’m not doing as much as I should with OTR, or when I find a doctor that is just full of it, or when I find a good doctor where another piece to the many medical unicorns puzzle falls into place or even when facing that huge pile of laundry , you know-the one that vaguely resembles Mount Moria…….
The great thing is its not just a pick me up when I’m feeling low, but also a reminder when something goes right, or close to it, that even though the path is bumpy we are making progress.
And that I feel is the biggest challenge, feeling like anything done is progress.
So remember today and every day this month……….Little By Little, One Travels Far.
