AWESOME AUGUST!! July 31 & aug 1

Thursday, August 01, 2019

Wednesday’s Pear: Most of us think we don't have enough time to exercise. What a distorted paradigm! We don't have time not to. We're talking about three to six hours a week - or a minimum of thirty minutes a day, every other day. That hardly seems an inordinate amount of time considering the tremendous benefits in terms of the impact on the other 162 - 165 hours of the week.~Stephen Covey

Happy National Avacado Day, National Mutt Day, Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day & World Ranger Day!

Thursday’s Beach: Self-esteem is the result of recognizing our personal power; awe and wonder come from recognizing our lack of it. Both are true, and in an exceptional life there is no conflict between them.~Victoria Moran
