A bit of gratitude!

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier” Mother Teresa

I am pretty sure I have quoted this before on this blog, but it’s truly one of my favorite quotes. I just wanted to take a little bit of time tonight to say how thankful I am for all of you who have taken the time to stop by this blog. Your support is truly amazing to me, and I am so thankful that I have had the chance to connect with so many people.

My goal for this blog is to make it so that when people come here they feel uplifted and perhaps find a little bit of insight as well. There are so many things around us that work to easily bring us down, and I think it’s important to have a place of refuge that we can return to lift our spirits up when we want. And I hope that when I write, I write things that do just that. I want the words to be places that can be returned to for moments of encouragement and inspiration.

And when I started out deciding to make a blog like that, I didn’t realize that it would be returned. That I could come here and see such support and such encouragement. It’s overwhelming the community that has formed here sometimes and I am honestly grateful beyond words for it. So I humbly thank you all, for stopping by, and I hope that as you do, you leave happier.

Thank you!

I also wanted to say thank you to the following people for nominating me for awards. Again, it’s incredibly kind of you to take the time to do so!






And a very special thank you for taking the time to read and review my book! It really means a lot to me!! Thank you so much!

  1. You speak with so much feeling of uncertainty. Always know who you are and expect others to not tread over you. Truth can weed out the uncertainty and bring focus to any situation.

  16. Thank YOU Lauren for being so open and heartfelt in your posts. Each one is a breath of fresh air 🙂


  17. Thats actually a great quote, I may actually use it for my next blog post! Your posts really remind me of so many lessons I’ve learned from others but mostly myself. It’s so refreshing to see other people with this knowledge , I love sharing it as well but it’s so nice to see people who have learned it themselves as well. I plan on getting your paperback book soon. Love the blog.
    And hey, don’t forget to smile!


    • Thank you very much. And I appreciate the “don’t forget to smile” reminder! Because it really is an important thing to do throughout the day everyday.

      And I love seeing others who feel the same as well. It’s nice when I know that there are others who know the same things to be true and to have been helpful. It makes me feel like sharing it is important, because it does have the capacity to help others. 🙂
