June’s topic for our Blog-o-Sphere Think Tank is: “A Quote that changed your life”
I cannot think of one single quote that has been life changing for me. However I do have this one that has resonated with me for years thanks to Henry David Thoreau: “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
The first time I heard this quote, I was in my 30’s. It symbolized hope. I was working in the insurance field at the time and I was not very happy. I knew I wanted to do something else and one day the courage came to go back to school and get my degree in a field that I love. Throughout all of that, and even now, I know that if I take the necessary steps (advances confidently in the direction of my dreams), I will achieve that goal I seek (I will meet with a success unexpected in common hours).
Now that’s pretty darn cool!
