Quote of the Day – Agnes de Mille on Living

Today’s quote, by Agnes de Mille, is really a simple statement on what we already know to be true. Sometimes we’re too focused on living our life “the right way” instead of living it. Just something to think about. Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment…

Quote of the Day – Barbara Jordan on Today

I love this quote, it really personalizes living in the moment, living day by day. You have to take life one day at a time. It’s worth it. I live a day at a time. Each day I look for a kernel of excitement. In the morning I say: What is my exciting thing for…

Quote of the Day – Gail Sheehy on Growth

Looking for today’s quote, I found this. It’s a subtle reminder that we all have things we hold onto, things we are unsure of, and things we have to embrace. In the end, the uncertainty is certainly worth it. 🙂 If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living….
