#MotivationMonday: On Hard Work

Can you believe another #MotivationMonday is here again? This summer is blowing by!

Today I am writing to you from Tybee Island, Georgia on a much needed beach vaycay. Jealous? Don’t be! Trust when I tell you I worked my TAIL off to be here! Working a full time job and trying to get my design business off the ground has lead to some serious double-ended candle burning. Late nights, lack of sleep, and things falling by the wayside. It certainly hasn’t been a perfect year and I’ve had to prioritize and compromise more than I ever imagined. There were definitely times when I thought about throwing in the towel altogether. But, here I am, plugging away, because I firmly believe in today’s #MotivationMonday message:

“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.”


I know it’s hard to see the end of the tunnel right now, but I have to believe that all this hard work is going to pay off.  I feel that the path I’m on right now will lead to the kind of life I want to live. It will come for me, and I am sure it will come for you as well.  So, let’s take a minute today to step back and see the forest for the trees.

Yes, it’s muddy and gross in the muck and mire, but that magnificent view could be just around the corner if we stick it out a bit longer. 

Are you right there in the trenches with me? Do you feel the weight bearing down on you? Are you a weary traveler on the road of life right now? I know, I feel you. It totally sucks, but we can get through this together. Share your journey with us in the comments below, and come see us next week for another inspiring #MotivationMonday.
