Don’t worry if you’re making waves simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time. – Scott Stabille This one spoke to me. I’ve been forever told not to create waves, thankfully, I never got the hang of doing that . I still stir up things, but that’s okay…I’m just being me! 🙂
Haha.. I loved that one too!

Writing a quote a day is a great practice, Corinne! It seems like it would be a daily treasure hunt for you!
Quote resonation: 2/2 Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space. Invite one to stay. ~Maya Angelou reflects Gods word of either living in God’s love or in fear. 7/2, 12/2, and 14/2 speak of sharing/reflecting God through us to others – beauty, light, and kindness. Thanks for sharing!
