Today is the 30th of the month and as part of my commitment to myself, it marks one of the three days each month I publish a blogpost. I have so many things that I want to write about, but find myself totally uninspired. My wife picked up on it and seeing that I wasn’t in a mental state to inspire others, she shared this nice list of quotes to get me out of my funk. It worked! Hope it helps you get your mind right should you be in need of drawing inspiration from others…
