November's Quote

At the start of each month I pick a quote that applies to what I'm experiencing or focusing on at the time. You're more than welcome to join me on your own blog. If you do, please leave a link to your post so I can see the quote you choose!

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming...
- Theodore Roosevelt

A bit of a longer quote this time around, and something that's been on my mind a lot lately. So many times, I let fear get in the way of putting myself out there, of trying something new creatively, of reaching out to make a connection. Of course, there are always those people just waiting in the wings to shoot you down when you do make the effort, but in my experience, the positive experiences are usually so worth it. So I'm trying to keep that in mind as I chase some dreams over the next few weeks & months. 

Also, if you're not familiar with this quote, I totally recommend looking it up and reading the rest. Inspiring for sure!

  1. I really like this quote too! I like your idea of choosing a quote to start off the month. It is important to not let fear get in the way of our dreams, it really is hard sometimes but very worth it in the end if we do try and not let our self consciousness get the better of us.
    Thanks for sharing,
