Sometimes life hits us up with a shit sandwich. Through no fault of our own we can get smacked upside the head and left reeling. I find quotes a helpful tool at a time life this, having one strong message to hang onto as I am scrambling helps me get my feet planted a little firmer, faster. It lifts me up to start dealing with what I can control and use to move forward. Here are some of my Go To quotes for various common shit-stormy situations.
