Journey to a healthier me

“How would your life be different if…You didn’t allow yourself to be defined by your past?
Let today be the day…You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny, and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self.”

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."
