Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! One of my favorite authors, Ralph Waldo Emerson has inspired me today. There are plenty of paths we can take in life, and many of them are paved with the blood, sweat and tears of those who came before us, those who dared to explore the unknown. We call those brave individuals trailblazers, innovators. And while those beaten paths are easy to walk along, perhaps you are being called to explore a new or different path, maybe one that does not exist without you? The world needs more trailblazers. Are you one of them? Let’s make it a great week!


Two Apples

A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands. Her mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: my sweetie, could you give your mom one of your two apples?

The girl looked up at her mom for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other. The mom felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mom, and said: mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgment. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.
