To all people of the world who like to run, I have something to tell you!

When the road stares at you - Be Bold and stare back.
When the hills hit you - Fight back.
When the pain tries to stop you - Fight back.
When the miles become long - Hold on.
When the heat becomes unbearable - Hold on.
Focus and remember:
You are a runner and you are a warrior - Always Fight back.

"There may be a thousand reasons not to do it, but if there is one reason in your heart to do that something you only dream about, that others may laugh at or tell you it is impossible, then make the decision to do it. That one decision...that one idea, that you never thought possible, is planted inside of you for a reason. Go beyond yourself and make the invisible...visible. Believe in yourself and what is in your heart. Once you do that, anything you believe in will become a reality."

"Have you ever been intimidated by someone? They don't have to be doing anything intimidating... just someone whom you envy? You find yourself secretly wanting to be like them? STOP IT! You would be surprised at the things that person has to do, just to be who you THINK they are! They probably want to be like You! Be yourself! Nobody does it better! "

Life is a string of moments
Millions upon millions
Not one less precious than the other
Each significant in their own way
Some...more significant than others

A quick thought I sketched on paper as I waited for my husband to come out of surgery...the night he told me he had cancer.

"I will blanket you, my friend, like a warm towel wrapped around your shoulders after a cold swim."
Written in 2010 by Rita DeCelles --- Kentucky
I was recently thinking about the secure and comforting feeling I felt as a child to wrap a warm towel around my shoulders after a swim. I thought of this after visiting my daughter and decided to share it with others. We need to let the ones we love know that we have their backs always.

"Remember... nothing is final. Every day that you wake up is a new opportunity to paint something new on the "canvas of your life". If you do not care much for the picture you started yesterday, start a new one; it is yours to paint. Just remember that when it is all said and done, and you are "done" with your picture, make sure it is pleasing to the eye and you are smiling because that is how people are going to remember you for eternity."
Written in 2010 by Becky Ritz --- Florida
I believe that life can get people down; I know it does me some days. Any day that I can inspire or motivate someone to smile, remind them to focus on their goals, and keep their eye on the "big" picture is a good day for me.

"We do not fall in love with beautiful people; we find them beautiful because we love them."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by J.M. Manchanda --- India
The quote suggests that we do not go just for a beautiful face. It is the inner beauty, which matters, in the long run. Relationships based on love and trust last longer and are thus more valuable.
