Resilience! One of the character traits I most admire in my real life heroes… and often, I don’t have to look far for reminders that when life throws us an occasional “No!”, it’s really alright. A comforting perspective I hold is that perhaps, that was not meant for me anyway or something else better is around the corner!
Life’s not meant to be a struggle… it’s can be rather effortless, really, if we understand that rejections and obstacles are part of the journey. Accepting and allowing are powerful verbs to soothe the mind and ditch unnecessary stress.
This is one of the easy-to-remember sayings I hope will stay with you for a long time…so you see chances everyday, throughout the day to do right by your body. It is trying its best to do right by you – striving for balance, repair and strength – for you.
When you view what’s on your plate with a new lens…you assert your choice to take control of your wellness!
“The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”

I really like this quote because for this race, I had no time to train and wasn’t sure I could complete it. Though I am suffering (physically) a little now after the race, I’m glad I pulled through and got my finisher’s reward! 🙂
