The road to success

I am on this journey to better myself. I know that with support from family/friends/love ones and Christ I can do this! I have a desire to not only renew my body, but I want a renewed mind and a diifferent outlook of how to deal with the stress and drama that life brings my way. I know I can do this...and I'm taking it a day at a time. So today (10/25/10) I want a fresh start to continue this race. I am now convinced that this is not a sprint, but rather a educated jog to a greater understanding about myself, my abilities, and health. So I look forward to learning new ideas and information along my journey.
