    Just a note to say "Hello". I hope you will have a Sparktacular Sunday.

    "Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you."-Cheryl Strayed, Brave Enough

    Like your useful comments on the Hiker's Guide to the Perfect Backpack article. I could have used some of your ideas when husband and I hiked on what turned out to be a more challenging and time-consuming trail than expected.

    I appreciate your thoughtful comment on my blog. It is certainly not a "one size fits all" process. I hope you had a Sparktacular Saturday.

    "There are no excuses. You are not a victim. You are unconditionally accountable for your life. You create goals and you succeed or you fail. Failure is an opportunity for learning. Once you recognize a mistake or acknowledge a failure, you learn and move on. You do not hold yourself hostage with guilt..."-William Diedrich
