Happy Labor Day! Hope you’re having a wonderful one. I came across this quotation by George Addair over the weekend and can’t think of a better sentiment to kick off the Fall season: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Working through fear is such an important part of growth and of living the life you dream about. I’ll be printing this quote out for sure.
ANYONE ELSE DO THIS?
I saw this quotation on @kelleywithlove’s instagram account a couple of weeks ago and took a screenshot. Does anyone else do this?

Then the truth to this statement really rings true.
What does it mean to be powerful? When asked, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (the man behind the Bird’s Nest stadium — site of the 2008 Beijing Olympics), offered this.

It’s March!! We’re three months into 2014 – can you believe it? Time is flying fast, so today’s Monday and March motivation? “Just start.” Sometimes these two words make all the difference regarding things that we’ve been putting off. There’s no time like the present, right?
