from one anxious mind to another

Over the years I have collected words of wisdom that relate to mental health and spirituality. Scrawled across my painted journal pages are these sacred quotes and words. Some have authors that I have documented, other drift along my notebook anonymous, wisps of something I saw or heard but never took the time to ground them to their creator. I share these divine messages with you, hoping that one of them or more will resonate so deeply within.
