The Quote That Changed My Life.
Sometimes all it takes is a quote to change your life.
I'm reminded of a difficult time in my life. I had to move across country and away from all my family and friends. Away from all comfort and everything I had grown to know and love. I was going through some very difficult times and I was given the opportunity to start over.
I chose the new start. I was afraid of the journey ahead of me. I felt sick and fearful. I didn't know where this new path was going to lead me.
Right at the height of my fear and doubt my mother told me a quote that I'll never forget; she said, "Brad, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Tzu and my mom.
My moms opportune timing and wisdom combined with that simple quote saved my life that day. It completely changed the course of my life and I couldn't be more grateful. I wouldn't be where I am today if it were't for that one tiny moment in time.
Today I practice meditation regularly. I've found that it's been one of the most beneficial things to both my mental and physical health. My hope is that you will let one of these quotes inspire you and you will begin your thousand mile journey today.
