Thought for the day...

" All stress comes from resisting what is."
                                          Oprah Winfrey


I had to share this quote that I just read. Isn't this true? If we could only just live in the now moment and accept what is, how peaceful and stress free our lives could be.

It is natural to always resist. We resist change, circumstances, even the weather. I can't tell you how many outdoor parties I stressed out about due to the weather forecast. Guess what, when it rained, we hovered under tents, danced in the garage and still had a great time.

Don't resist....just accept....breathe....and give in to the here and now!! XO!!

  3. Beautiful post from a beautiful woman! My mind doesn't know how to function when I don't have any stress! I am quite blessed right now and my biggest stress today is all of the food I have eaten and need to get out of my system! Time to get to BFC'in again!
