Hello, hello and happy Friday! Today I want to share with you a post I came upon while doing some blog reading. The Book Raven is a blog I have been following for a while and I absolutely love it! The post I am reblogging today is about trust, signs, confidence and finding courage 🙂 Check it out!
I see this a lot on the inter-webs. Posts, images, and descriptions saying this is your sign! Your sign to go out and do that thing that you’ve been procrastinating about. Your sign to ask out that certain someone that has caught your eye or to reconcile with someone you thought you lost.
