    The quote that resonated with me today is by Phil McGraw, Sometimes you just have to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you. One of my favorites is, “The unexamined life if not worth living.” Aristotle, I believe.

    • Hi Penelope,

      I’m glad to hear one of the quotes resonated with you. I can always find solace in a quote when I need some inspiration. Thanks for sharing one of your favorite quotes as well.

  2. Gladys,

    I especially love this quote on courage: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” —Mary Anne Radmacher

    That’s often how I feel! I don’t resonate as much with the push to have a “bold” life. I think bold can be quiet like this.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    • Sandra,

      That’s one of my favorites too. It helps me to remember that when fear temporarily stops me in my tracks – I get another chance to try “tomorrow”.
      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comment.
