2020 was the worst year. Ever. I do believe 2021 will be much, much better, but I am not feeling it, just yet. With lockdown and no clear idea when to get the vaccine, I need some motivation.
Hence this collection of motivational quotes. I hope they will help you too, to get a spring in your step. It’s more than 3 weeks since we had the winter solstice and the evenings are getting brighter.
Happy New Year!
