HOW TO FIND MOTIVATION WHEN THERE IS NONE

This morning I woke up to a message on Facebook. “I have been to the gym TWICE since I started. I need some motivational speaking.” It’s ironic that she messaged me. I am writing now in wry amusement. I love that she thinks my words will inspire her to hit the gym when I myself […]
