Mondaze.

Mondaze.

Happy Monday!

“Ability has nothing to do with opportunity.”

“Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

“Victory belongs to the most persevering.”

“Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.”

“Imagination rules the world.”

-Napoleon Bonaparte

Breathe, let it sink in.
