Read. Dream. Believe.

Just wanted to share this beautiful and true quote. If you ever feel like you don’t matter, just remember: “…your fingerprints can’t be wiped away from the little marks of kindness that you’ve left behind.”

(P.S. I always like to give quotes the proper attribution, but I wasn’t able to find a reliable source for the author of these wonderful words. If you know who wrote the above quote, please let me know and I will update this post with the author’s name. Thank you! β™₯)

pexels-photo-301694.jpegOkay, it’s almost the end of January, I guess it’s time for me to make some resolutions! One of them, without a doubt, is to read more.

I guess it’s pretty obvious that I love books (smile), but like a lot of folks, my time for pleasure reading is often limited. So this year I vow to treat myself to more reading time!

I’ve started a list on Goodreads of the books I want to read in 2018, and I’ll be adding to it frequently. If you have any book recommendations for me I’d love to hear them!

Not sure if this has been evident to most people, but I have been in a rut for quite awhile. Personally and professionally, I’ve been rolling a little ways forward only to roll right back again. It’s become apparent that in order to get out of my rut and get back on the road, I am going to have to take some big steps – maybe too big for comfort.

The idea of these big steps has been on my mind a lot, to the point that on a recent morning when I woke up, my first thought was: “I’m not ready.” Then I went on to Facebook, and the following quote popped up. Okay, Universe, message received. There’s no such thing as ready, there’s only now. Let’s see what happens from here! (And if you want to share any good thoughts, experiences or advice on self-rut-ejection, I would be more than happy to read them!) β™₯

The above quote is from this interview with the wonderful Hugh Laurie. I snagged the graphic from the Writing About Writing page on Facebook.
