A little inspiration from Helen Keller…

| January 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is one of those rare months where we have more than 4 Mondays in a month – so – we have a week break before our next adjudicator post (looking forward to our next installment from Cheryl Myers next Monday!).

For many of our readers this may have been your first competitive weekend of the season, so this quote jumped out at me today as timely and appropriate to fill the void.

“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.”  -Helen Keller
