Thank you to the person who submitted these quotes to my site. I'm not sure if they're original to the submitter or their favorite quotes. But, thank you for submitting them.
I'm not totally sure of the first one though. I find that on days when I've been working hard and have been inspired by what I'm working on, I'm filled with energy and joy even though I may be tired. Or sometimes, if I have energy left at the end of the day, I like to use it to enjoy it just relaxing or being in the moment. If you're too tired as in being overtired, sometimes you can't do that.
Also, if I think back to the days when I would come home completely exhausted from work, it wasn't that I'd worked excessively hard, it was that my work environment completely drained me. I also wasn't doing what I really wanted to do with my life so I always felt tired, bored, and frustrated.
I also know that I have higher and lower energy times during the day and I work with them rather than trying to force myself through them. So, I'm not sure I would consider that I'd cheated myself if I still had energy left at the end of the day. There's just a natural flow of energy to my day.
But, that's just my 2 cents worth. I could also be reading the quote wrong. I do definitely agree with the thought, "Never Give Up" though. You just have to keep moving forwards.
Thanks for the quotes. Always lots to think about with quotes.
