Dropped at #dukegardens#durhamnc : Maya Angelou's "Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now". From the reviews: "In this small gem of a book, Angelou shares her thoughts about humankind: how to respect others of different cultures, opinions, and values as taught by universal philosophies. Annie Johnson in "New Directions" and Aunt Tee in "Living Well, Living Good" are just some of the characters Angelou uses throughout to illustrate with precision and color the respect and perseverance she values. The narratives are carefully constructed with exhilarating assurance as the reader makes the transformative journey from what she is to what she must finally be. Angelou's prose is brisk, fluid, and entrancing. This work will provide a taste of wisdom to all who read it. Highly recommended."

A wise woman once said this..... Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass💪💕 While I could have slept in, rushed around, and used the excuse of "how busy" we are this weekend and skipped my workout, I know that mindset won't get me any further or any happier in my life.
Yup... I am tired, but I was even more tired of complaining all the time about why my life sucked, how I hated my body. THAT... was more exhausting every day than moving for 25 minutes a day.
Alarm set. Workout about to go down. I'm about to kick ass today.... and every day.
