Free Printable Quote // “A Set Up”

"A set back is a set up for something better." I’m mostly stopping in today to let my most faithful readers know that I am, in fact, alive because let’s be honest, my posting schedule this month went out the window. The more days I skip, the harder it seems to get back into the swing of things. Do you ever experience that feeling? Maybe when you skip a workout and can find a million reasons to skip the next one, too?

The good news for you guys is that I really really miss this blog when I’m not posting, so I hope to find a way to get back on track. Just stick with me!

Each day in February felt longer than the last — not in the “summer is coming and the sun is staying out longer” sort of way, but in the “will my to-do list never end??” sort of way. There are some big changes happening over here that I’ll be chatting more about in a few weeks. And through those changes, I’m reminded how tough and exhausting change can be, no matter how wonderful you know it will turn out in the long run.

The point of today’s post is not to wax poetic about the meaning of life and how to find happiness amidst the crazy { although I am reading a great book related to that right now }, but just to share this amazing quote from one of Jess Lively’s podcasts last year.

“A set back is a set up for something better.”

One of my mantras has always been that “things happen for a reason.” I really do believe that, but it’s often hard to understand what that reason is and lately I’ve felt myself begging for the answer to “WHY?” I love that Jess’s quote isn’t overly esoteric, but gives the reason behind “things happen for a reason” — there is something better around the bend and your challenge, hardship, whatever you want to call it, is only serving to lead you there.

When I find myself in a funk, a little creative time usually cheers me right up and this time, playing with fonts and designing something pretty did the trick. If you’re in the same boat, I encourage you to download this free printable quote design here (it’s a 5×7). Hang it at your desk or by your bed as a reminder to focus on the amazing things that might be SETTING UP in your life right now.
