I am going to start compiling a weekly list of my favorite quotes, to share which ones I like, and to remind me of what I should be doing. I love quotes, try my hardest to live by them. They really seem to take complex situations and make everything clear, helps me figure out where I am at if something is not working right. If I am in a huge mess, one motivational quote can change my perspective and help me out of it. So I share with you my favorite quotes every week. I have been into quotes probably since freshmen year of high school, so I’ve got a bunch saved up 🙂
