LOTD | Quotes That Changed My Life & Perspective

Hello, I'm Cynthia.
 .....and I'm a Quotes Addict

Seriously, if I ever come out with a book someday, that is how I did it. Because, you know.... 
"You become what you do everyday." 

And this is partly what I meant by Rabbit Hole in this post.

Words really are powerful. They can change how you live your life & make you 
see things in a different light.

That's why I wanted to share my favorites in a blog post. 
Well, they're really just a few of my favorites!

*Please note: I don't know or remember the source of most of them.

Ziizayne has been waking up multiple times in the night these days - asking for water, 
or dangling his leg on my neck, or crying coz of a bad dream where I'm not giving him 
what he's asking for! Once, he even said "Skittles"
And I'm not one who can go right back to sleep!
