Lori's journey

I want to be the same inside and out. Inside I'm adventurous and active. My weight makes that hard to be, so I'm working on it.

Thanks for the encouragement and the bottle of bathing suit.

Good morning, Lori... 'RISE' & 'SHINE'!

Each day is a new chance to find joy and to dance. If you let it pass or think it useless, the chance is gone and you’ll never get it back. When was the last time you played? Or just did something for the sheer fun of it? Joy is not found in the world around you, it’s within yourself. You can make your own joy, especially during those dark times when you need to really feel alive again. So do your favourite dance. Sing in the shower. Learn a magic trick. Watch a cartoon. Challenge your kids to a game. Don’t let today go by without a little 'rise' and 'shine'.

How's your 'Rise & Shine' attitude today? Never forget that, despite your imperfections, you are a light to others, and that you need to be just as much a light for yourself.

1. To what challenge will you 'rise' today?
2. How will you 'shine' today?

“We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.” NIEZTZCHE

May today be all you need it to be. May an all abiding inspiration and peace fill your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears. May JOY and LOVE manifest itself today in ways you have never experienced. May your desires be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your cares be lifted and your needs be answered beyond your own imagining. May conviction and determination reach new heights within you. May your territory be enlarged, and fulfillment just one step closer.

...And come tell us on our team thread how you are 'rising' and 'shining'!
