Monday Morning Motivation

Have you ever failed at anything?  I have.  Have you ever fallen down either physically, or figuratively and felt you did not have the strength to keep on trying ? I have.  Have you ever felt lost/confused and just did not have the motivation to even try to get out of the hole you have dug for yourself, or the energy to attempt to get out of the pit that life had placed you in?  I have. I guess most of us have been in these situations.  But there is good news!  It is a new year, a new day and we can get back up and keep on plugging, keep on trying to be the best we can be.  (I find this is only possible with God's help:-)  Here are a few sayings to help us pull ourselves up by our boot straps no matter what is going on in our lives.....

"This thing called failure is not the falling down but the staying down." 
(author unknown, at least to me:-)

(I happen to know the person in the above picture, and he did get up and had many successful sledding moments after this fall.  He could have given up but he tried again and was glad that he did:-)
Fall seven times, stand up eight. - Japanese Proverb

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."
Philippians 4:12-13

Happy Monday!
Enjoy your world everyone:-)


  1. I have too and you're right... the point is to get up and keep plugging along.. thanks for the great motivation! :)

  2. If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.
    Mary Pickford

    I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
    Thomas A. Edison

  3. Great words for the start of the week girl. Yes I have been there done that in all the circumstances you mentioned but didn't give up. God will find a way where there seems to be no way.

  4. If this shows up twice, I apologize...

    Great words to live by. I try to get right back up and {mostly} I'm successful. Not always, but I try to bounce back quickly.
