As we rush to complete our final end-of-year duties, we begin to become so entangled in those obligations that we start to lose sight of the important things. The end of the year can be extremely stressful for some — either it feels as though you still have a lot of work to do, or it may feel like you haven’t accomplished much of anything in 2010. Regardless of any anxiety you may feel about the end of the year, it is vital to sit back, relax and remind yourself of the opportunities ahead of you.
However, at only 20 years old, I honestly can’t say that I know all the answers; in fact, I’m equally guilty of spinning my own wheels and stressing myself out. Because of this, I thought I’d let the experts speak on my behalf. Anyone who knows me or is a friend of mine on Facebook knows that I’m a huge fan of collecting quotes for all occasions. Today’s post is no exception!
So take a deep breath and let these quotes uplift you as they have done for so many others.
