Motivational Quote - And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Changing your lifestyle may be uncomfortable at times, but remember the end result: a happier, healthier, fitter you. A year from now, do you want to be in the same place, or do you want to be able to look back on how far you've come?

You have to start somewhere sooner or later. Opening the bud wasn't easy but once it was open there was no stopping me . Thanks for the Awesome quote.

I love this, and I do understand that sometimes it is just easier to stay where you are.

I've always had a butterfly kind of self image. This really speaks to it

Reminds me of the caterpillar/butterfly story. You have to push with determination to blossom.

Very true. This very effectively sums up what eventually got me to go back to school. Going was terrifying, but it got to a point where not going was even more so.
