All Quoted Up!!

I thought I would start this blog for a variety of reasons, to rant, rave, as my online sort of diary, an imprint, a memory of who I was, what I represented when I would finally leave this temporary world, basically, everything you would think a blog would be for. But the moment I actually decided to sit down and write my first post, it all came to me; the name, the idea I wanted to pursue, I mean everything seemed to just fall into place. I was super excited and putting my thoughts on paper chased all my fears and anxieties away. For me it was not some fad that everyone seems to be doing but for a greater purpose; to remind you and me that our destiny is not a matter of chance but a matter of choice.

This particular post has no sense of inspiration per se but to let you know i have been and will continue to be M.I.A for a minute. I’m having my exams in the next couple of weeks and I’ll be hella busy hence really won’t have any time to post anything. With that said, im going to leave you with a couple of my favourite quotes. For me a quote is a well-crafted word that leaves a lasting impact; a phrase that resonates in my mind and provides compelling answers to old age questions. Here are a couple of quotes I have collected over the years that that spoke to me and inspire me to be a better me for future me!!
