Quote Challenge-Day 3

Once more I would like to thank Grateful Single Moms for the nod. At first I was like ahhhhhh I don’t have any quotes and than found that I did. Today’s was going to be  ‘Tomorrow is another day’ but I was scrolling through Facebook and found a different one.


  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

My quote today is:


I stopped living the life I wanted before it could even begin. I have been existing for so long. This last bout with depression has re-awoken the desire, the need to write the words and stories that are floating around in my head. (I nearly said tiny little mind but K and DD would be after me about that-no negative thinking)

Also I can honestly say that I am falling in love with myself. I am protecting myself and being who I was meant to be. And that means being brave and letting go of past hurts and wrongs. It means forgiving myself. It means letting go of the toxicity I find in parts of my life.

Of late a lot of things have been making sense to me suddenly, as though the universe has finally had enough and is giving me a broad kick in the butt to wake me up. And I am awake now, ready to chase and find my dream and love myself.

My nominees are:



Sara in LaLaLand

I am hoping that they will join in the fun and I look forward to seeing their quotes and why they are special.


Quote Challenge-Day 2

Again, thank you to Grateful Single Moms for the nomination. I find that her blog resonates with me all the time. I easily relate to her material (save for when she is complaining about how cold things get down in Fl-lol) and have been inspired by her.

Today’s quote is again one that I have posted in my home. It is on the mirror in the bathroom so that every time I go in there I see it. And remind myself that I can reach for and accomplish my dreams. 20180312_110649761392783.jpg

I spent a long time thinking that my dream of writing was dead. That it was a footnote in my history. Yet I find that it is not, it merely went dormant for a time period during which I have accumulated ideas and experiences to write from. Never give up on your dreams.

Today I nominate the following three bloggers and hope that they will accept the challenge. I look forward to seeing what they find inspires them.
