Hey friends! This post is a a bit of a different one from the normal workout or recipe: it’s a collection of some of my favorite quotes and images that I have made over the last few years and shared either on my blog in various places or on social media.

WE decide if things become stumbling blocks or stepping stones!

I’ve always felt that motivation can be fleeting and discipline trumps motivation to get work done in the long haul, but I love motivational quotes. There’s nothing like a good quote from C.S. Lewis or Theodore Roosevelt to get my mind in the right place. Like Todd Durkin says, “get your mind right!” šŸ˜‰

It’s so easy to get sidetracked, forget where we’re heading, or forget our purpose, and sometimes we need that mindset shift or that path adjustment to get us back on the right track mentally. Refocusing on what really matters, and shifting focus away from the things that don’t matter.

I hope this post provides from encouragement through great quotes from amazing people like C.S. Lewis, Theodore Roosevelt, J.R.R. Tolkien, and beautiful images from Unsplash (one of my favorite places for free images!).

Personal growth can only come from stretching yourself beyond your limits of comfort. Whether you want to grow emotionally, spiritually, physically, or relationally, you must step out into the unknown to experience changes. If you want change in your life, change in routine must take place.

Whether your risks are successful or fall short, you will still gain experience and growth. Make a habit of trying something new or different each week! Find a new exercise to try, make a new friend, find a new recipe to cook, learn a new skill …the possibilities are endless!
