Motivational Quotes to Empower You
I believe that motivational quotes empower you and your life. Do you agree with me?
The greatest thing we have is life. And life holds so many things that are important to us – our dreams, our family and loved ones, the work that we do, fulfilling our purpose and meaning, remembering our divinity as we honor the Divine and so much more.
Yet sometimes things can be overwhelming and we long to retreat and burrow our head somewhere due to exhaustion and tiredness. Sometimes we need an inspiration to keep us going and stay motivated. I share these inspirational quotes which I hope will help motivate you in one way or the other.
What do you want out of life? What dreams lie in the deepest core of your heart? Each of us is free to dream, to fly, to spread our wings and soar as high as the eagles in the sky. Keep your dreams alive…

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” - Henry David Thoreau
