Quotes name

As you may have noticed, I love quotes.  I love coming across a quote that speaks to me, and says “Yes!  That’s exactly what I wanted to say!”   I find people who are smarter than me are able to articulate my thoughts and feelings into words better than I can.

Since I’ve started this blog, I have posted 20 entries. Wow!! So, I thought it would be fun to put all my quotes together. Here it goes:

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brené Brown
