Today is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and we continue to honor his work and legacy in civil rights. This #MondayMotivation quote from the late leader is a reminder that taking steps forward towards your goals or ideas matter, no matter how small they are.

The quote from Dr. King is pretty straightforward. It is a push to keep going, regardless if you are able to fly or run fast towards your big dreams or if you have to walk or crawl slowly. We get so caught up in getting there quickly instead of recognizing that each step forward is still progress that should be celebrated.

This quote is timely for me personally because today, I have relaunched ImperfectlyBShop.com (shop for inspirational t-shirts, hoodies, and more!), and am also working on some other life goals. It can be EXTREMELY frustrating moving so slowly, but I know I’ve come too far to quit because I’m not getting there fast enough. So I really needed this quote today.

Are you here with me? Let me remind you to not despise small beginnings. Celebrate your wins, no matter how small they may seem. Learn from the path that you’re currently on. Keep getting better. Keep moving forward.


Today’s #MondayMotivation quote is in honor of the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’m sure this quote applied to his journey towards ending segregation with other civil rights leaders and protesters. They didn’t know for sure if and when things would ever change, but they had faith. They had hope. They had vision. Even though they couldn’t see the “whole staircase,” they had faith enough to take the first step towards it.

The same goes for us with our life goals. We may not be able to see exactly how things are going to happen and it may take a while for dreams to become reality. However, when you have faith and continuously press towards the mark, things begin to change. Growth happens. Progress is made. I know because I’ve seen it for myself. So take the first step…and then another…and another.
