I keep finding inspiring quotes…I should really start writing in my poor journal again, but for now I will share with you guys.

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.

I think this quote is rather inspiring…it reminds me when I didn’t quite get the A Levels I wanted. I was put onto a diploma course and if I passed the first two years, I could do the final year which would give me my degree.
What also spurned me on was the fact that in the final year we got to go on a placement as part of the course. I was desperate for this chance, I wanted to learn and be inspired and I was.

My placement was with The Sunday People on the sports department working alongside Lee Clayton. I had read lots of Lee’s work whilst he was at The Daily Star, I’d even written to him about an article.
What an experience that was and still to this day that was one of those moments in life.

Everything happens for a reason.

I don’t always believe or agree with this statement but sometimes it’s true.

      Yep, not an online one though. Plus the poor thing has been neglected again.
