    Thank you for compiling these quotes. I needed to acknowledge the elephant in the room. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’ve been at war with myself for far too long. Today, Calamity Chaos (Me) was ready for a standoff. Sheriff Shine stepped in and put the cuffs on. From this day forward, I refuse to let Calamity run wild and free. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’m taking control and running (Forrest Gump style) all the way to a victorious life! Thank you Shine Staff, for the uplifting words, dedication and countless hours of research that have, no doubt; contributed to the healing and success of your readers!

    Sincerely,

    Cali
