How Do You Row?

Today’s card is not a card. It’s a tangle. At work, my desk area is plastered with quotes. I find ones that speak to me then put them on unlined note cards. Then I pin or tape those cards all over my area.

“If there is no wind, row.”

It is a Latin proverb according to the little calendar I found it in. And it speaks to me. Sometimes I feel as if I’m not moving. I have to remember that I move myself. I cannot always depend on others to help me get where I need or want to be.

So how do you row when there is no wind? How do you invigorate yourself? How do you motivate? Or, as I am fond of saying, motorvate?

Today’s affirmation is:

Today I will focus on the bright things. I will acknowledge both sides but my focus will remain on the joy. I will move with comfort. I will move with ease. I will navigate today with a joyful outlook. I am loved and loving. That is enough for this moment. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

  1. I have a saying similar but different… Water doesn’t flow uphill.

    Sometimes we should coast instead of row and let life take us where it needs to. But I can also see how rowing is good. It is good for the muscles and good for making us not by lazy.

  2. I love that quote, and the zentangle! It’s not saying you have to work all the time, just that if you sense a lull then maybe you can be the one to bridge it…
