Now that I am an adult I absolutely hate being ill. Why? For obvious reasons:

Motivation and Inspiration Day

Hello and Happy New Year!

Today is Motivation and Inspiration Day, which is timed perfectly to talk about keeping up with the New Year’s resolutions.

The hangover is gone, so it’s time to get motivated and inspired for the coming year. I would like to share my resolutions with you. These aren’t the practical ones (I have a long list of them!), these are to keep my head up and stay motivated.
