    So true… all of these words. I too have only just begun to see that change is good and necessary to feel like I am alive. It was lack of change that used to make me feel hopeless and stuck.

    Change is the one thing we can always rely on. Sometimes change is good and sometimes its scary but it nearly always leads us to where we are supposed to be.

    Romany Angel ~ I love the way you wrote that. That is so true.

    I love quotes and actually collect them. If that is yours, it is a very powerful one.
