Quote For Thought : Monday Motivation
Sometimes, I feel like all I come up on are defeats. A majority of the time things are not coming out the way I had planned them or expected them to come out. I use these times for me as motivation. It helps me turn in the right direction and get stated doing things correctly.
When things do not turn out the way that I expected, I have to take a moment and re-evaluate what I am doing and how I am going about things. I like to tell myself that if something isn’t going my way, perhaps that is not the way I am supposed to go. Exactly like Ms. Angelou’s quote, although I encounter defeats, I try not to let myself feel defeated.
Being optimistic most of the time is helpful. I stay away from negativity as much as I can. But there are some days when even I can not pull myself out of my own mind and I feel like I am in a slump (as they say). Those are the days I am very thankful that I have my wonderful husband. Every one has those times when having an extra voice of encouragement can help make the difference. I hate to say it, but sometimes optimism isn’t enough.
Those times we need to remember that once this road bump of a defeat is dealt with, we can continue down the road and hopefully never revisit this slump again.
It may not be a husband, It may be your sister, mother, brother,father, cousin, best friend. It doesn’t matter who the person is, just knowing that there is someone else who can give you a little encouragement when needed can help us ultimately not become defeated by our obstacles.
