Everything has a meaning and a purpose. I have always enjoyed reading inspirational stories and quotes to help me look at the big picture–no matter what is going on in my life at the time. I seemingly happen to find the right saying at just the right time that fits my focus so I wanted to share them with you. If you need extra fitness motivation, or you’re looking to find clarity through a situation you’re currently going through, I hope you find something here. I certainly have.
Feel free to share some of your favorites with me! I’d love to post more intelligible sayings to help us all find additional encouragement!
