Rejoice...for your soul is alive

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse, Italian actress (October 3, 1858–April 21, 1924)
I like this quote because so many things have the power to move me in a positive way. I know that many people who struggle with weight issues and lifestyle changes, also struggle with emotions, moods, and other issues.
I firmly believe that the key to successful weight loss is in our minds. Using visualization, maintaining a positive attitude, reading spark people articles, message boards, blogs etc., are all mental tools that can be used to keep us focused on our goal (and eating a healthy, balanced diet and daily exercise aren't bad ideas either).
