End of year quote

We always have the opportunity to make a change at any time, but it feels good to leave the bad things behind in the previous year.

 

Quote

“Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” – John Wooden

This quote is spot on.  It can be easy to get caught up in everything we can’t seem to figure out.  Which can lead us to do nothing.

Recently I have been focusing more on what I can do and getting help for the things I can’t do.

Yes! Getting started can be the hardest part of a journey.  As an over-planner myself I have to remember it is better to just start.

Again live for the present moment.  This quote makes me think of my children.  It can be sad to watch them grow because I miss the younger version of them, but I have to remember that if they didn’t grow I would never have my current aged child.
