This #MondayMotivation quote from the late, great jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald is one that we should all remember.

The gist of the quote is that, no matter where you’ve come from or started, you still have the opportunity to be someone great. No matter where you are right now in your life, your career, your relationships, etc., that doesn’t mean that you can’t and won’t achieve more. It’s not about where you start but where you’re going.

One of the many lessons I’ve learned from my own life and others is that you can be at the lowest of lows and God can pull you out in addition to you being willing to change your circumstances. I hope that this encourages someone today. It’s definitely encouraging to me!


Good morning all…another Monday, but I’m actually in a great mood this morning. Feeling optimistic about this week! This quote from the late legend Ella Fitzgerald is definitely helpful for me.

I’ve been getting a lot of great compliments about Imperfectly B, which I’m grateful for. Not because I need them to validate what I’m doing, but it’s just good to hear that my words are helping people in some way. That’s what I wanted all along. I’ll be honest. I still tend to doubt myself somewhat in this new direction. It’s not easy in the least bit. But, at the end of the day,  it’s so right. I feel so inspired and at peace every time I start to write here. It doesn’t feel like a chore. It just flows. I’ll make mistakes (I already have), but I feel like I’m on the right track overall with this site.

Listen. Wherever you have that same love and inspiration, that’s where you truly belong. Don’t give up because the road gets hard, or you don’t know if you can make it happen for yourself. Whatever you really want to do, go after it with everything you’ve got! You may hit some bumps in the road, and you’ll get some things wrong, but keep going anyway. Don’t stop trying.
