Wisdom Jar Week Seven

I can't believe I am already half way through with the quotes.  I haven't really been slowing down in finding them.  It is truly amazing where you can find inspiration.  Most of the quotes I have been adding have had the theme of change and finding inner peace.  I guess that is what my main focus has been lately.  I think my goal for the remainder of  quotes should be to find quotes and sayings that would be fun for others to read as well.  Funny how I have to be reminded that it's not all about me.
