12 Quotes About Strength And Courage

2020 has been a year. Many times I come across a quote that resonates with me. Quotes can mean something different to each of us as we’re living our own story.

Have you heard of Byron Katie’s The Work? This method of questioning my thoughts and worries and then asking myself if it’s serving me or creating suffering has helped me manage anxiety this year.
