The quote on the cover image is from Eleanor Roosevelt. Pretty impressive!!! Vision statement: To live a long life, to look and feel better around others and feel better about myself, to make long term changes to have a more productive and enjoyable life. I can do this by being more active physically through exercise activities and opportunities like bike riding , swimming, and walking nature trails. Visit parks and walk at a pace where my heart rate isn't going wacky, having a sexy body and remembering, "...the body is the temple of the Lord...". Also, to learn not to be self-critical when things go wrong but to pick up the pieces and move on. To remember laughter and venture in the great outdoors to lift spirits, to find hobbies that promote healthy habits and to seek comforts outside of food. Most of all, celebrate life and embrace its treasures.

    "The past doesn't define you, your present does.
    It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes.
    Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen."

    Just LOVE your profile image. I started a cross-stitch of that painting about 18 years ago and always intend to get back to it someday. (Not coincidentally, my eldest just turned 18 this year.....lol!)
