    I love this topic! I save quotes for me to read later when I need something to keep me going. My top three favourites at the moment are:

    "The bravest thing I ever did, was continuing my life when I wanted to die" ~ Juliette Lewis.

    "We must be willing to let go of the life we've planned, to have the life that is waiting for us" ~ Joseph Campbell.

    "A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it" ~ Jean de La Fontaine.

    Hi Livinia, great quotes! I can see why they resonated with you.

    "There is and never will be anyone quite like you. You are unique, can't be imitated or replaced if you cease to exist. This uniqueness alone means you are valuable, a precious "one of" never to be replicated." ~ Starwolf.

    Hi Liv,

    I LOVE the 1st quote!

    Thank you for:

    The bravest thing I ever did, was continuing my life when I wanted to die" ~ Juliette Lewis.

    Liv, if that reflects your current state of mind then you are indeed very brave.

    When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The Eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storm of life....may your heart soar like an Eagle.

    Hope Springs Eternal...

    I've written this on every post I've done today. I'm in a heart inspired mood and want so much to pass on the love I feel. When I'm like this, hope is eternal...like beautiful peaceful music caught in a loop. Don't want to get off this round-a-bout.

    Sara xoxo

    This one's from the musical Hamilton which I have been listening to on repeat over and over again:

    “I am the one thing in life I can control. I am inimitable, I am an original.”

    There ain't anybody coming

    There's no one coming to put all your broken pieces back together

    Putting my 5yr old to bed. I said I love you. He said I love you more than there were dinosaurs. I said I love you more than stars in the sky. He said

    "I love you more than the last bicky in the whole world "
