Sometimes we need to be reminded

It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were… But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something.
— Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

I needed to read this today:

I've been holding on to a dream. I've kept going. I've been faithfully planning and building business muscles for nearly two decades. I've become really good at managing myself in respect to time so that I could build something that is important to me. And the time is coming when I get to share it with others. Pinch me!

We are co-branding a product launch for Kilometer 66 with artisans in Thailand. As the photos come in and I see it coming together I stand in awe. It is worth it to push through the darkness.

Thank you Samwise for reminding me that a new day does come.

I'm not gonna lie. It's not been easy. But vision propels.
