Quotes for a happy Friday. One of the great things about life is that it always shows you situations that challenge you and force you to react. Quite possibly for you, it is the first time that you have experienced this particular emotion or activity. The best thing is that almost without exception, someone, somewhere in the history of mankind has had a similar experience and felt exactly how you felt about it.

The more I look for topics to write about and expound upon, the more my writing process comes clearly into my mind. I write best when I have someone specifically in mind to write about, because it is like I am explaining my thoughts or emotions to them, or that I am giving them advice. Often I know the advice would never be received directly, so I just give it on the pages of my writing. Read more...(525 words, 10 images, estimated 2:06 mins reading time)
