In the Middle of a Storm

"No one would have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten off the ship in the middle of a storm."
                 - Charles F. Kettering
This quote really resonated with me today. Sometimes when I am in a "storm," my first response is to put my head down and ignore the bigger picture. I just think, this will pass.

But maybe I should work harder to get to the other side...maybe there will be amazing things once I cross the ocean and the more effort I put into succeeding in the middle of the storm, the better off I'll be.

I'll try to enjoy the storm :)


  1. Sometimes it's hard to focus on the good. We learn and grow more through storms if we can only make it through. Thanks for the great quote!
