Yesterday I opened the mini fridge in the new office and it made me smile. Not really sure why, I guess because it looked so like me. And just like that, for whatever odd reason, I was reminded why I work like a crazy person.
Another inspiring moment came recently while reading this quote from Emerson of EmersonMade:
The first thing is to decide on the deepest level that the thing you love doing is worth doing, so much so that it is worthy of obsession. That’s the fire that starts the engine. After that, you must promise yourself to work extremely hard and do good work everyday, and that you will never give up, no matter what. Just say, “I will never give up, I will never give up, I will never give up,” like the little engine that could. When you decide this, everything you want is yours —it’s just a matter of working hard and pushing through the hard parts with a grin on your face. The grin comes from knowing you can do it because you decided you would.
Now if I could just get my hands on that dress she is wearing.....
PS-Yes, that is actually V8 in the fridge. Turns out this mom-to-be developed an aversion to veggies once pregnant so I have to get it any way I can.
