You can't out-train a bad diet

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

We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson

Have a SParkling week.
Bring your Light wherever you go... and S H I N E !! emoticon
