I love quotations!
The uplift me, they motivate and inspire me and they always make me think!
They resonate with me especially when they relate to whatever is going in my mind.
So I share here some quotes for different circumstances you find yourself in, in life, and hope that they help you to ‘change your mind’ if it’s not helpful right now, or remind you that you are on the right track if you recognise them as part of your life right now!
Motivational thinking …
