Mid way through February! Where does the time go? In my part of the world, we are dealing with colder than average temperatures and higher than average accumulations of snow. Moods and motivation are also dropping for many that I know. The kids are enjoying snow days, but what they don’t see is that for each snow day, they add a day onto the end of their school year. That will be an eye opener, when the end of May arrives and the year has stretched out longer.
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Sometimes, especially with the way this winter season seems to be dragging, it’s hard to find the motivation to get up and get going. The to-do list is impervious to the temperature or the snowbanks, I’ve found. What I’d really like to do is go somewhere warm; unfortunately, my life and work have other plans for me.
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
~ Walt Disney
Over the years, I’ve collected inspirational and motivational quotes from websites, books, cards and elsewhere. Sometimes, a favorite quote can provide the pick me up needed to keep plugging away.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
At Nygren-Kearns Photography, we are keeping busy with shoots and edits and having a good time networking and meeting people. Getting out and about keeps the blahs away for us. Do you have any tried and true methods of keeping your spirits up and motivation strong? What is your favorite inspirational or motivational quote? Do you have a saying that sticks in your head and keeps you on track, or something that you return to when you feel yourself dragging?
