  1. I like number 9. Even the quote itself is so creative. It definitely inspires me to dream of the impossible.
    It reminds me of what my art teacher once said, "if it rains, we'll paint the sun on to the sky if we have to". I've always liked how that quote made me feel empowered, to control my own happiness.

    1. No. 9 is a creative one; I like it too.

      I really like what your art teacher said. It's funny how we remember some things and forget others.

      I think I'll keep that quote into my mind, too, if that's okay with you?
