Hold my hand

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.

The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter: 

“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.”

The little girl said:

“No, Dad. You hold my hand.” 

“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father. 

“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl. 

“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.” 

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in it’s bind, but in it’s bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours.

I THINK I CAN, I THINK I CAN!

“Mind is the master power that molds and makes and man is mind, and evermore he takes the tool of thought, and shaping what he wills brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. He thinks in secret and it comes to pass. Environment is but his looking glass.” – James Allen

…It’s your choice. You can positively change your life today simply by changing your thoughts. All it takes is a decision.

You can do it!

“Set your alarm for 6am. Don’t groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head, get up and start your day. Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt. Add some granola. Now go outside. Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it. When you’re done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? If you do, good for you. Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you don’t like what you see, do this every day and pretty soon you will. Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run. How badly do you want it?”

… I want to be this strong.
