“Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.”
– Luke 9:23-24

“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.”

Smile and wave boys. Just smile and wave.

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.

Drama does not just walk into your life. Either YOU create it, invite it, or associate with it. Don’t complain about it if you are the one driving the drama bus.

The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off. Be yourself. Be Happy.

You either live a self directed life OR a God directed life. Your choice. There is no in between. There is no almost. Don’t convince yourself otherwise.

If WE don’t support OUR community – what will happen to it?

Nutrition Tip: Gym time is important. Kitchen time is just as important. Don’t miss the benefits of your hard training by neglecting your nutrition..
