    Your lifestyle doesn’t just make you who you are. You also make your lifestyle what it is. With a lot of love and a little effort you can be happy with both!

    Wow, thank you for some perspective, Alison M! I really like (and will use!) many of these mantras but that may be my favorite.

      Mary, me too. I find inspiration in so many of these but that one has special resonance for me. When I think of that sentence, it’s like everything shifts into a positive perspective. Thank you so much, Alison M. It’s a must-Pin for me!

    Just a few more ;-D

    If it is important to you, you’ll find a way.
    If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

    A year from now, you’ll wish you started today !

    When you feel like quitting, think about why you started !

    Thanks Jessica, you’ve brought a “tear” to my eye… (many in fact ;-D )
