"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies growth and our freedom."

I've seen the above attributed to a couple of different subjects, but the sentiment is just as good.

...

Performing feats of fitness (in fits) since 1998.

And

Zen swimming since 2011.

....
Things I've learned:
"If you are not here, you are nowhere."
"Help is everywhere."
"Do. Now."
"Pretend you are not afraid."
"Making long term happiness does not always feel good in the moment."

    What I like about YOU is: that you are striving to be the best that you can be. I admire that you are pushing yourself to be a better swimmer & to get your certifications. I admire that you are going back to school to be able to move forward with your plans to teach. I admire that you were willing to stand up for yourself and do what was best for you, even though it was scary to quit your job. I find you to be amazing & am glad to get to know you better and better. You inspire me to try harder.

    The Dragons are caroling!

    Just hear those sleigh bells jingling
    Ring-ting-tingling too
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Outside the snow is falling
    And friends are calling, "Yoo hoo"
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up
    Let's go, let's look at the show
    We're riding in a wonderland of snow
    Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up
    It's grand, just holding your hand
    We're riding along with a song
    Of a wintry fairy land
    Our cheeks are nice and rosy
    And comfy cozy are we
    We're snuggled up together
    Like two birds of a feather would be
    Let's take that road before us
    And sing a chorus or two
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    There's a birthday party
    At the home of Farmer Gray
    It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day
    We'll be singing the songs
    We love to sing without a single stop
    At the fireplace while we watch
    The chestnuts pop; Pop! Pop! Pop!
    There's a happy feeling
    Nothing in the world can buy
    When they pass around the coffee
    And the pumpkin pie
    It'll nearly be like a picture print
    By Currier and Ives
    These wonderful things are the things
    We remember all through our lives!
    Just hear those sleigh bells jingling
    Ring-ting-tingling too
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Outside the snow is falling
    And friends are calling, "Yoo hoo"
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

    White Christmas

    Lyrics
    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know
    Where the treetops glisten and children listen
    To hear sleigh bells in the snow

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know
    Where the treetops glisten and children listen
    To hear sleigh bells in the snow

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white
