As you get settled into the new year, do not let yourself settle.
We all write resolutions and goals, yet not many of us actually accomplish or stick with them. Let’s make THIS the year that we all better each other, lift others up, and keep a positive mind to make 2018 the most impactful, life changing year yet.
Here are 15 quotes to motivate you and remind you just how badass you are throughout 2018:
1. “You can’t be hesitant about who you are.” -Viola Davis
