"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Christopher Robin

My personal trials have also taught me the value of unmerited suffering. As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways that I could respond to my situation: either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course..." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    "In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

    Hi Okie! I have a huge variety of foods that I eat, and I think that makes my life easier because I'm never bored. I eat alot of fruits and veggies. Some of my favorites are plums, pluots, bananas, watermelon, pineapple, baby carrots with greek yogurt dip and asparagus sprinkled with parmesean. I drink ALOT of water. I also make sure to try and have protein at every meal, and if not, I snack on greek yogurt often. I recommend, Dannon Light and Fit. Very delicious. When I first started out, to increase my exercise, I made small changes like taking the stairs or walking to lunch instead of driving. I slowly introduced running and ended up running a half-marathon in April. Just trust your body and don't push yourself farther than it wants.
