When I was a little girl I used to be able to fly, sort of. I would skip and then jump -- and stay in the air longer than I should have been able to. I never thought of it as weird until I was twenty or so, when I showed off my skill for a few people and saw their jaws drop. As soon as I registered that it was so out of norm, I stopped being able to do it.

"When you choose to only live in the past, you are subconsciously building blocks against growth & happiness in the future.

"Health is something we do for ourselves, not something that is done to us; a journey rather than a destination; a dynamic, holistic, and purposeful way of living." -Dr. Elliott Dacher
Worrying... It's like a rocking chair- it gives you something to do but doesn't get you anywhere; it's like walking around with an open umbrella incase it rains; it's like adding poison to your own food incase you get run over by a bus first. Sound ridiculous? But isn't that exactly what we are doing?... poisoning ourselves?
"Never regret anything. You can't change or undo what happened, but you can control how you deal with it in the present moment and use your experience to shape the future". - Tanya Alekseeva

When you feel stupid, someone else will give up anything to take on your mistake instead of theirs...

When you feel like a failure, someone else will give up anything to have the life you live...
When you are grateful and know how to count your blessings, you create an energy field around you, which improves the lives of everyone that comes near it... near you."
- Tanya Alekseeva
