My grandmother and I have always seen eye to eye on inspiring quotes. We love sharing ones we have found with each other. Whether some are ones she made up herself or ones that she found I love opening her emails to see what inspiring words she has for me. I decided to put the quotes here to share with you as well. So if you are in need of some inspiration feel free to check back here for updated quotes. I also sometimes take photos from my adventures and apply quotes to them because it just flat out inspires me. Enjoy! See more at MotivationOneDayAtATime.Tumblr
