Everyone has a passion and a purpose in life, and it’s up to each of us to discover what exactly that is. No one can tell you what it is or who you are. That’s a journey you must take for yourself…Are you bold enough to start?
I was inspired recently by a Katy Perry song. Laugh all you want, sometimes the silliest and most simple of things are what can ignite the hottest flames within ourselves.. For me, a lot of times, I find my solace in music and others, it’s the wisdom I find in inspirational quotes, books and stories of those who have lived and learned before me. (For those who are curious which Katy Perry song that was, it’s called Rise! Look it up! Good stuff!)
I’ve put together a list of my top 30 favorite inspiring quotes (in no particular order) that have helped me in all areas of my life during the highs and the lows…ENJOY!!!
