I am feeling encouraged and rather surprised. Surprised at myself. Although I will not go into details I do want to say that I discovered that I had reached a small yet significant goal. I am not quite sure how I accomplished it but I did! Yay me!!
So on that encouraging note I am posting a few quotes about travel and adventure, for a boost.
