Thanks for sharing the words of wisdom. You know how I love quotes! That Ann Landers was pretty smart and I love the Thomas Edison quote, by I’m going with Goethe today … because I’ve been dreaming for way too long and NEED to be BOLD … finally!
Hugs and blessings,

Great quotes. I think the one by Thomas Edison sums up my problem. I am not focused enough to accomplish a big task which is why I have a ton of little projects in progress.
