I can't help it, I'm thinking ahead to my goals for next year. I know, I know it's not even Christmas yet, but... 
I have to say, even just thinking about my goals gets my undies in a wad (translation: stressed)   Yesterday, I stumbled upon this famous quote, coincidence? I think not. I pass it on to you. Sometimes you have to hear these things over and over until they stick.
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step", Lao Tzu

  5. Great quote, Amy. I was just thinking back on 2011 yesterday and realized I never thought I would get so far into my goal. The quote is so true. And what words of wisdom! Thanks for sharing them...Rae
