  1. Hallo Mirjam,

    Geen quote, maar wel een compliment, je hebt prachtige waardevolle quotes bij elkaar gebracht. Fijn om te lezen, te laten landen en me door te laten inspireren. Dank je wel!
    lieve groet, Mariska

    By going outside my comfortzone over and over again, life showed me its beauty, the wisdom in others and in myself, it dared me to show my strength.
    I love to grow, to learn, to share with others and to find out how far my potential can stretch!!
