Such a beautiful quote! I believe that every one of us has a talent- find your gift and use it to make someone’s day ❤
She said, “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that you are born of faith in yourself and others. May you see the gifts that you received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” ST. Therese
