"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control." -- By Dean Anderson, Behavioral Psychology Expert

I enjoy art of all types, music of many genres, travel, books, interior decorating, and ecclectic wabi sabi style decor. I like people watching, especially looking at people with red hair, beards, deep wrinkles, or who are eccentric! I respect scars, and try to remember that many are not physical.
I also like biking, Qi Gong, HIIT and Tabata style workouts, and Fitness Blender routines.
