If you follow along on the Script Notes Instagram, you’ll see that I occasionally like to share quotes from BrainyQuote (which is a fantastic site, if you’ve never been). Usually they’ll have a quote of the day, you can select a random quote, or just search for quotes related to a specific category. Today I hit the random quote feature and the above appeared.
Given the history surrounding the events of today, as well as a potentially catastrophic hurricane headed for the East Coast, I wanted to use this space to spread some positive vibes for anyone who may read this. Granted it’s hard telling if it may be one person who might read it, several hundred, a thousand, who knows. However, one of the goals I have always had for Script-Notes has been to make an impact for positive change in whatever size or form, and I am hoping this can take off.
Not many look forward to Mondays, so usually we can always take whatever sense of positive news and stories we can get. With so much negative in the world anymore, I’m hoping to start sort of a little Motivation Monday series around here. Today’s is a great story about someone who was able to knock out $35,000 worth of debt in two years. Hopefully it can equally inspire you.
