It's sunday and the weekend is disappearing way too fast. My plans of a carefree motorcycle ride today got rained out and now all I can think about is work, business strategies, and other monday-related things. I'm not exited.
So to pick up the mood I thought I'd share one of my all time favorite quotes for bit of inspiration. I came across this poem in a class taught by one of my favorite teachers, Sasha Pimentel Chacon (if you like poetry, look her up because hers is wonderful). I didn't understand the poem at the time, and I probably still don't get it completely, but this one line really stood out to me.
Some might find this a bit morbid. One of the main premises is that we are all going to die. But it also says that our bodies are not the mark that we leave on this world, our words and art are.
What this quote tells me is just how important it is to do something meaningful every day. It begs the question, if I were to die today, what would I leave behind?
This is my inspiration, but maybe something a bit more upbeat would work better for some of my other readers, so let's share. How do you find your Monday morning inspiration?
If your answer is coffee, I can already tell we'll get along just fine.
