Here are your words of wisdom quotes for today:
“Every day that we wake up is a good day. Every breath that we take is filled with hope for a better day. Every word that we speak is a chance to change what is bad into something good.” – Walter Mosley
“It’s time to start living the life you imagined.” – Henry James (American writer and author)

  1. I can definitely relate to the idea of trying to be all mums. I guess we, do what we feel needs doing most often than not. It has felt in the past that there has been little choice in the matter!.
    Still, I love Walter Mosley.. and I love that quote. I'm trying to live that life I imagined... :).
    ..feels good when I do that too
