Living, Not Existing

I recognize, with great gratitude to the universe, that I am indeed very lucky to have the life that I have and to be able to do the things that I do. But sometimes I get stressed. I get sad. I get frustrated. It’s part of the human condition, I know, but I also get mad at myself for it from time to time.

Recently, though, I stumbled upon this quote and bringing it to the forefront of my thought has helped me to at least be a little less mad at myself when I’m feeling…for lack of a better word, blah:

I love it because of the word stumble. Soar and flourish are there too, yes, but this quote recognizes that it’s not always a perfect uphill climb. There will be pitfalls along the way, and that’s part of living not just existing. 

I hope this quote brings you a little motivation on your Monday! (Or, whatever day you’re reading this).
