  1. I’m just about a week late! I like these quotes — very inspirational. I think self-discovery (on purpose, or by accident) is an important part of dealing with chronic illness/chronic pain. Self-discovery can illuminate the past, present and future.

  2. Since I had a problem with Yahoo mail (ads appeared in my version of my blog when I clicked on links back to it, I’ve “unlogged” out of all sites.
    So, I always forget I have to sign into my blog on wordpress before I can leave a comment.
    So, of course, I’ve now forgotten alot of what I had to say about your quotes and self discovery, lol. It only takes an instant! And because I’m not staying logged in, I keep forgetting passwords (and/or forgetting where I wrote them down — if I remembered to do so!).
    I do know I said something along the lines that self-discovery can illuminate the past, present, and future.
    As usual, I love the quotes — they are always inspirational and often just what I need at the point in time!
    Thanks for sharing!
