“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

From Eat, Pray, Love

Oh and btw, I DID go running yesterday and I’ve managed to lose an inch off my waist! woo!

On that note, I’m sure anyone of any size can appreciate this essay on weight issues & weddings (read it, it’s good)

Have a good weekend, kids 🙂

    All you did is run and you lost an inch of your waist?! I. Hate. You. :-0

    PS-Have you read the book/seen the movie Eat, Pray, Love? I’m interested in it and was wondering what you thought.

      Haha, well, I just started running for the past two weeks and lost the inch (I am by no means an overnight success story). But the scale won’t budge 😦

      I haven’t read the book or seen the movie yet, but planning on doing so soon, and I’ll let ya know (I got the quote from a Self Magazine tweet)
