One of the reasons all of us like to read is all the wisdom and power messages we find in our books. They make us think about certain things we never new could happen or recognize some of our own thoughts.
Today I will do something little bit different. We usually post our favorite quotes from recent reads, but this time I want to share with you few of my favorite passages talking about identity. Who am I as a person? What defines me? Is my "normal" same as your "normal"?
"Don’t worry about wanting to change; start worrying when you don’t feel like changing anymore. And in the meantime, enjoy every version of yourself you ever meet, because not everybody who discovers their true identity likes what they find."

Saving June by Hannah Harrington
"Normal is an ideal. But it’s not reality. Reality is brutal, it’s beautiful, it’s every shade between black and white, and it’s magical. Yes, magical. Because every now and then, it turns nothing into something."
