Let's Talk- Be Inspired

Quotes are some of my favorite things to read and be inspired by.  It could be I like them because they are short and to the point (which is a desirable trait for my life at the moment), but mainly I just really love to be inspired.  So I gathered a bunch of quotes that I really enjoy and get challenged by.  I am sure there are a ton I will suddenly remember after I post this, but for now here are some great words of inspiration for your week.  Just remember, a quote is only a set of words- their weight lies in what you do with them.

Now go ahead and light up your facebook statuses today.
