Journey to a healthier me

My name is Laurie. I am mom to 3 beautiful girls and wife of 20+ years to an amazing guy.

"There are admirable potentialities in every human being.
Believe in your strength and your truth.
Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, 'It all depends on me.'"

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli
