    Quote –
    A lovely inspiring quote this month came from new member @Guardian
    "I hear you’re pain but I found what worked for me was not worrying about what I lost in time or money but what I have left to build on.
    It’s like the ship went down with my belongings and I have the clothes on my back to start again to be rescued
    Look ahead don’t look back"
