Right now, I could do with all the pep-talking I could get. I feel pretty low – emotionally and physically. I am fighting a tummy bug as I am trying to cope with the sadness that seems to have settled at our place, temporarily. Life WILL go on, we will accept the way life is. Because, you see, nature intended us to move on. And as humans, we have the wonderful innate ability to filter the good parts and allow them to fuel us as we stumble on.
My love for inspiring quotes started during my childhood when my Mom would leave little notes of encouragement all over the place. I confess I follow her habit with my son and am always rewarded with a positive response.
Today, I felt the need to spend some time with these wise words and I’d like to share some of them with you.
