Motivation for a Monday

I love this quote from one of my favorite authors, Louisa May Alcott. She wrote Little Women, one of my all time favorites!!
What I love best about this quote and why it is perfect for Monday is because whatever challenges you may or may not know that face you this week, you have the power to take a hold and overcome them.

It's funny this quote came up. I have been thinking about getting a car, but in this weird world we live in, I have to get a license first. Yes, I do not have a driver's license. Now let me explain, I never had the need to learn how to drive and driving school was expensive in high school so I didn't learn. As the years past by and I lived on campus, I didn't have the need either. Now that I have a job, I can feel the need becoming stronger. doesn't stop there....say if I did get a license, I certainly do not have the money to buy a car right away. Soooo it's a long process and, quite frankly, a lot of excuses. 
I just know I need to get one to overcome a little twinge of fear. Yes, I am afraid. Drivers out there are scary! And I don't think I can handle the emotion of angry drivers. 

I should listen to Louisa and take her advice to heart. I am not afraid of highways for I am learning to drive. Thanks Louisa...because in the world of naysayers, I do need proper encouragement and not to be discouraged by already licensed drivers (who by the way are spending a TON of money on their car a year and contributing to the pollution of the air.) just saying.... 

Wait... Is that another excuse?
I'm just happy I am being environmentally friendly and economical for MY wallet. No seriously, I've done the math. Just saying!
