In A Day

Cheesy quotes kept me company while I began work on the backyard today.  They’ve also been my pedestal while I contemplate a soon-to-be-revealed major life change.

Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. 

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

They help all of my five-foot-three self trim a tall overgrown bush in the backyard.  They remind me to breathe when the fish I’m cooking for dinner isn’t going to be edible, even though everything else has been made and we’re both hungry (thank goodness for grocery store rotisserie BBQ chicken).


Those slogans remind me that even when the thorny tree I’ve spent two hours trimming looks no different from before, I am making small progress towards a larger goal.

It also reminds me that I should invest in a good quality electric trimmer to work smarter, not harder.

What’s your favourite cheesy quote?
