I see me in this quote. After a stroke and my husband dying, I am not motivated to do my art. I will copy this quote and put it in my art room.

I am carrying my heart~I am carrying my rhythm~I am carrying my prayers~But you can't kill my spirit~It's soaring and strong (Paula Cole's Me Lyrics)***We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We ARE spirtual beings having a human experience.(T.deChardin)***There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. (Albert Einstein)

Is this quote from The Awakening? I haven't read that book since high school.
