"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
-Karen Salmansohn

"Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”

“When was the last time you woke up and realized that today could be the best day of your life? Participate in your dreams today.
There are unlimited opportunities available with this new day. Take action on those wonderful dreams you've had in your mind for so long.
Remember, success is something you experience when you act accordingly. Success is not something you HAVE, it’s something you DO.”

Believe in your strength and your truth.

Roses are red, yoga is great,
Who needs a Valentine when I can bench my own weight?
Violets are blue, and peanut butter is heaven,
I'll save you a kiss after rep number seven.
Bananas are yellow, and yogurt is Greek,
Squats are gonna be the only thing to make my knees weak.
Oatmeal is perfect, and veggies are divine,
The dream to be strong is what I'm making mine!
-Unknown
