Many of you who know me well, know that I’m a total sucker for quotes.
As this first month of the new decade comes to a close, I thought I’d share some quotes about optimism, and some other quotes that have helped me through hard times in the past. Even though I’m happier now than I was a year ago today, I still find these helpful! I encourage you to comment and add some of your favorites! …
