I love inspirational quotes. Sometimes when I am feeling defeated, I like to pull up quotes that speak to me. Inspirational sayings that push me past that defeated feeling, to remember why I am working hard toward my goals. Whether it is trying to be the best mom I can be, or being the best friend I can be, or sometimes it is even doing laundry for 4 little kids...I often need a little encouragement. I even made sure that the artwork I put around my house and office are encouraging. I want to be reminded that it is important to keep my focus on the goal. Of being my best. I also want to remind my children. I want them to grow up knowing that we get one life. That it's important that we don't take it for granted. And that they understand that everything they do is important. Every action and every deed. How they treat others. How they treat themselves. I want to remind my patients of that too. That I will give them my best. If I can do that for everyone in my life, then my hope is that they can take that with them and pass it on. It's the ripple effect. How we treat others ripples out, like small waves on the water. And even if I haven't seen with my own eyes the effect of those small waves, I still know in my heart that those waves spread far and wide, and they will keep going even after I am long gone.
