Motivational sayings have always been a part of my life.  Whether it was my dad saying "you better get motivated or else" or my mom saying something like "dream big son, the sky is the limit,' I have used motivational sayings for many reasons.  Life is truly short and the only chance we have to do something is right now.  Unfortunately, holiday season is a time that many people fight depression. If you or someone you know is fighting depression there is help.  Call 988 and anonymously talk to someone that can help.  I have posted various saying throughout my house to remind myself as well as give my kids something to think about.  One of my favorites that I put in my hallway is:

“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn

Another great quote is:

“If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.” ― Regina Brett
