PS. I have missed sharing quotes with you!!
Love these quotes!!! For me I’ve accepted who I am and become which is a cream puff girl who likes to wear women’s clothes/bras/d and dd breast forms/ panties/lipsticks/perfumes/lotions/leggings/ankle and knee high boots. I could care less if I have girl friend as I’d rather dress up as girl and become one instead of trying to get girlfriend.
I like the Jack Kornfield quotes. And you come across as a person with a strong sense of mindfulness, I think. I will try to find some good quotes and thoughts to share with you when I get a chance. Have a great August!
I am so glad that you love them, Petey!! And I’m really glad that you’ve accepted who you are. That is such and important and helpful piece as you try to be mindful and present in your life! 🙂
Thank you for saying that, Princess! You know just how very much I value you and your opinions! Jack does indeed have some pretty awesomely inspiring words! I would LOVE you to share those that truly sing to you!!! 🙂
