I love quotes. And I love finding the perfect quote to inspire me when I need it.  So I’m going to share some of my favourites here on the blog.

“You can’t change the direction of the wind, but you can adjust your sails to reach your destination”

Versions of this have been credited to Jimmy Dean, H. Jackson Brown Jr., Bertha Calloway, Dolly Parton and as a proverb.  Regardless of who said it first (probably a sailor!), I love the reminder that some things are out of our control.   And that by focusing on the things within our control we can still achieve our goals. So next time the wind changes and life throws something unexpected at you, take a minute to figure out what you can do to readjust your sails.  Don’t let those outside influences and disappointment stop you from getting where you want to be!
