There is no finish line

"All you need to achieve your goals and your dreams is your mindset." - Rosie Swale Pope

I recently learned the story of Rosie Swale, a 68 year-old woman running from New York to San Francisco, inspiring all those she meets along the way. And if the run weren't challenge enough, she is pulling a 300 pound load - essentially all the supplies she will need on the nine month journey.

A runner all her life, Rosie took solace in her sport when her husband passed away from prostrate cancer in 2002. Instead of turning inward, she made it her mission to raise cancer awareness through extreme challenges. In fact, a year after his death she undertook a five year run around the world in his honour. 

Rosie is a reminder that each one of us can make a difference. Each one of us has a purpose, often it's a matter of taking life by the reigns. And when in doubt, opt to help others. Happiness lies in creating happiness for others.

Rosie shows us that it's up to you to live a big lit…

What do you see in the mirror?

We all know them. People who people blame others or circumstances for the challenges they may face, complaining about everything from their job, to their partner, their family and friends, and anything else they think isn’t as it should be.  And of course we are all guilty of this to varying degrees.
Complaining is so much easier than making a change, or practicing gratitude for that matter. But consider this: much of our life is simply a reflection of our actions and because of that, you can do something to change what displeases you. That starts with your attitude.
