Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

The End of Over Eating by David Kessler: describes how people, places and environment influence our eating habits. Also delves into the mysteries of food science and marketing and their influence our preferences for taste and quantity.

    Let today be the day you embrace your beautiful spirit and shine a light for those living in the
    dark. Light their path so the road traveled will be seen more clearly. A person whose heart
    is saddened by the troubles of this world, the loss of a friend or family member, a hard days
    work, or the struggle of provision can experience joy through a simple act of kindness. Be
    that candle for someone today and shine bright. -Amaka Imani Nkosazana 💕

    Everything we make happen in our life is a reflection of what we believe about
    ourselves. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to
    ourselves more than we think we are worth. -Iyanla Vanzant.

    "When things don't go as planned, we can either fall into destructive behavior Or use the
    experience to find our inner strength. Our lives aren't determined by what life brings us,
    But the Attitude-We-Bring-to-Life. A positive attitude is a catalyst... a spark, that creates
    EXTRAordinary results." ♥♥ Make every day, Extraordinary!
