3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

Thank you for the Quote Challenge, Vikram! Sorry I’m a little late. 😉

This challenge entails providing a quote and nominating 3 other people to participate–for three consecutive days! It’s a way to encourage connecting with other bloggers and share inspiration at the same time!

Here is my quote for today:

“Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded.” – Unknown

Personal thoughts:

I though that this quote was pretty cute. It’s true though. With an increasing scale of hard dedicated work, there are less and less people as the rungs get climbed. With less and less people surrounding you, there is more leg room, less intake of recently exhaled air, more elbow room, less pushing and shoving, and–last but not least–a better ability to stand out.

In a crowd of a million people who are at the same place as you, it can be hard to stand out. But when you work on improving yourself and stay focused on achieving your goals step-by-step, you end up in a smaller crowd… and smaller yet.


It says to nominate people to partake in the challenge but I don’t want to put anyone on the spot! I encourage anyone who comes across this quote to share an inspiring quote of their own!


Small Wins | Intro to New Category

Small Wins | Intro to New Category

This week was pretty hectic for me, but I’m glad to say that the worst is over.

I’ve decided to start up a new category of posts called “small wins”, where I will be posting about small battles I have overcome or gold nuggets of blessings that come to be.

Sometimes, when you are swamped with things to do, it can feel like you aren’t getting anything done, or that you have fallen behind and need to catch up.

Sometimes, you may even get mad at yourself for not being productive enough, efficient enough, or determined enough. These thoughts can really bring you down, as I have experienced. Every time I rise up above the mass of broken armor and blood, I realize the importance of remembering the small wins. They remind you that all your brain power and physical efforts were not for naught and they provide you with encouragement too.

“See how you were able to succeed in ____? You are capable. What’s next on your to-tackle list? You can do that too!”

Some days, I go through the whole day thinking that I haven’t done anything productive but it wasn’t until I started recording them, that I realized it wasn’t the case.

Let’s all remember the small wins!
