Life is very stressful for me right now and I am feeling the effects in the core of my being. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will get worse over the next week or two as I finish up my time at the office and leave my lovely home behind in the hopes of a brighter future. And I hope that once that part of this journey is done some of the stress will fade away.

To get me through to that, however, I am in need of inspiration. So I’m back to finding wise words to ponder.
