We all have a story to share. Don’t give up on yours.
Everyone needs inspiration at one point or another. We need the encouragement, stimulation, push forward... At times I am a purely selfish person. I seek after inspiration, encouragement, motivation. (Don’t we all?) When I don’t get it, or can’t find it, I struggle. I admit this is one of my weaknesses. So, in an effort [...]
