5 Quotes I Live By

I collect quotes. I gather them close and bring in more. They aren’t all deep and profound and they are often with a wee bit of wryness or humour, but they keep me connected … to me. They all, on some level, inspire me. To keep improving. To stay grounded. To remember to laugh. To change my perspective.
