Hi Corinne – I’m always amazed at how other people’s words speak to our hearts in different ways at different times. I’m going through another change of direction atm and I see so many quotes popping up on FB and Pinterest that speak to that intention. I like that it makes me feel that I’m not on this life journey alone. Your quotes were all so meaningful and obviously are speaking to your heart at this time of life too.
Isn’t it strange how these quotes seem to pop up seemingly randomly, Leanne? I guess we have our eyes and ears open for words that confirm what we are going through at the time. Thank you for your visit.

Hi Corinne, Your words seems as you were reading my mind! wonderful and be blessed. Every night has to bloom in a daylight and it WILL come , no matter what…… great to read you Corinne
Thank you for stopping by, Sapna. Do you have a practice of collecting quotes too?
As usual Corinne, you inspire me again. In this mundane existence, we can feel lost & at sea for meaning in life. Your writing feels like an anchor to bring me back to myself, my purpose & significance.
I love seeing some of my favorite authors’ words here: Susan Jeffers, Pema Chödrön, Tara Brach, Gretchen Rubin, etc. I appreciate these word roundups, Corinne!
