Motivational Monday – BRING IT, week!

Sometimes you just need a ‘get-going’ mantra or inspiration…especially on days like today where I’m sick as a dog (what does that even mean? But I am producing enough snot to coat my esophagus and slowly suffocate me to death) and I don’t even want to get out of bed.  When I have a billion things to do but not enough time. When I just want to say “Fuck it,” some of these make me say “Bring it.” Take your pick.
