Did you ever have one of those days when nothing was going right? You woke up late. Your favorite pair of pants has a hole in them. You spilled coffee all over your shirt. Oh, and of course it's pouring outside. You're down. Everything (seems like it) sucks. Audrey Hepburn's famous character Holly Golightly called it having "the mean reds..." because it's so much worse than just the blues. 

So what do you do? Sometimes you just need to turn to the wise words of others to pick you up... and get you going again. These motivational quotes are sure to do the trick. Dive in!
