“life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” – Charles Swindoll

meI have always had a fascination with quotes. Little bits of wisdom meant to inspire thought and action. As a child, I leaned on them to give me a conscience to make wiser decisions. Charles Swindoll’s quote “life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” is tattooed on my forearm as “X-XC” to permanently remind me that I always have control over my reaction whenever my world is becoming uncontrollable.

Life, Quote Unquote is a collection of quotes that have inspired me and how they moved me to action. There is always an endless supply of inspiring quotes from the greatest minds of our existence, to realize that there is an infinite supply of life experiences to go along with them, is what gives me the energy to live a full life and then write about it.

This blog is not my first kick at the can in writing. The Roaming Mind was a 3 1/2 year project of mine to rid me of pain caused by childhood abuse. That blog led me to write my first book of the same name and a TEDx talk. While I have no idea where this blog will take me, I am surely going to enjoy the journey, and I hope you will too.
