20 Inspirational Quotes to Motivate You Through the Rest of 2020

While scrolling Facebook last week, I found a meme that read:

“Anyone else concerned about the 2020 season finale?”

While the year 2020 has not ideally been the best thus far for many of us, that doesn’t mean the year has to end in a negative way.
Can I get an “amen“?
One of the things keeping me motivated is checking things off my 20 for 20 List. (Click to read more about my “20 for 20″list here.)  I would love to have all 20 items crossed off my list this year!
To start the month of October and my first post of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, below are a selected list of motivational and inspiring quotes to encourage you through these last three months of 2020.
Please use this graphic and repost or tweet if they have been helpful to you and encourage your friends and followers!
