    This is just what I needed to read this morning. I’ve been stressed searching for new jobs and considering a career change. The quote by Barbara Pletcher really hit home!

  2. “It doesn’t matter where you are, you are nowhere compared to where you can go. ~ Bob Proctor” resonates with me SO much. I feel as though I’m going through a transition year that will ultimately lead to some big changes in my life next [school] year. Going to pin this so I can refer back to it and I’ll probably also add some of these gems to my planner.
