A Friday of Phrases: Quotes of Motivation and Inspiration

It was brought to my attention by a few readers that it has been quite a while since I have done a ‘Friday of Phrases’ segment. I have been so busy with preparing my oldest daughter for college that I had forgotten to do one over the summer. I know I vowed to do one regularly~ my sincerest apologies!


So without further ado, here it is! I hope that these quotes of motivation and inspiration encourage you to stay strong, keep your head up, and continue going after your dreams full throttle!


Enjoy! 🙂
