If you know me, you know I love a good quote. I'm the gal who has 2 quotes up on the fridge, 3 taped to the inside of my planner, and randomly picks a new quote daily. Oh and often gifts quotes for birthdays and Christmas. Ha! Almost forgot about THAT one.
Every time I hear a good quote it feels like the universe is speaking right to my soul shouting, "I know you needed to hear this Steph, now go do what you need to do with it!"
Blogging can be a long and lonely journey. I often sit on my couch typing away wondering if anyone is out there listening. I absolutely love it but often look for all sorts of inspiration to stay motivated. It can be overwhelming too. Where to start, what to write about, knowing the person I'm writing to. They are all a part of the journey but are some of the biggest reasons people never get started blogging or decide to quit.
Keep going my friend. Know that you're not alone and that every little thing you create is building this bigger thing that you will be proud of.
