but you can change the little things and sometimes that’s enough!


Below are 7 Inspirational Quotes from professionals from all walks of life (author, artist, actress, psychologist) or should I just say people…because we are all just people.  We have our strengths, we have our weakness…and that is what distinguishes us.  It forms our path.  Our path may be warped and bent by our circumstances but we need to perservere to find our own way.  It is this struggle that often gives our existence vitality and meaning.  It is not the destination but the journey that defines our being and determines who we are.  If we knew all of the answers life would be simple yet meaningless.  It is our quest for our place and understanding that gives our life meaning.
