Behind the quote… lies true inspiration.

Quotes are like little pockets of life all sewn up in a few words.  They remind us of our humanity, our potential, even at time our losses.  Sometimes the quote itself, just the words, is sufficient to inspire the moment.  But quite often, the true inspiration and value comes when we know the story behind the quote.   Over the years, there have been many times when a quote has crossed my path and has paused my step.  There have also been times when the words re-directed the next steps.  And there have been times when the words have kept my steps going.

One of those quotes showed up in my news feed on Facebook yesterday from a friend.  The timing was impeccable for my journey.  Here are those words:

“You never know what is around the corner. 

It could be everything. Or it could be nothing.

You keep putting one foot in front of the other,

and then one day you look back

And you have climbed a mountain.”

The tapestry of these words was so rich in color and texture I wanted to know more and did some research.  I found a beautiful video where the words are spoken.  The story is the inspiration.  The words mean more when you know what is behind the quote.  We cannot give up on our journey.  We must keep putting one foot in front of the other.  And one day we will look back and find that we have climbed that mountain.  And we are our own champion.
