My Favorite Quotes That Resonate #BeTheChange

Something hit me this weekend, what was it? It dawned on me that I was longing for a pick me up. Something other than my hikes with Murphy, something other than creating a new recipe. Something other than what I was doing. I think I am in a COVID state of weariness.

However, it soon passed when I gave myself a little talking to. There is so much to be grateful for, there is so much to strive for and there is so much to give to the world if you just let go.

I am sharing a few of my favorite quotes today. Be happy. Love always wins.
