More and more, I'm finding myself reaching for a motivational quote or some inspiring words. Especially when the hills seem like monstrosorous mountains to climb!
But one thing I've found when the going gets tough, is that if I sit for a minute and try (capital T because it's not always easy to get myself to stay there!) to see it from a different perspective, at least my tension eases off - even if the situation doesn't.
So here I thought I'd share a few quotes I've used in the past and others I've read that have had me nodding in agreement.
