Keep Believing

Recently I was given this lovely little book for my birthday by a very good running friend.

I just love books where you open the pages at random and read the messages in no particular order. I believe that the universe opens the pages for you and you read what you need to read at that particular moment.

Day after day I read different excerpts but somehow I keep coming back to this particular passage, (and no, I haven't dogeared the page, nor spilled margarita mix or used a gooey peanut buttered finger to mark the page!)

I thought I would share it with you and oddly enough, it is the title of the book!

Keep Believing in Yourself and Your Dreams

Every goal that has ever been reached began with just one step...and the belief that it could be attained.


Dreams really can come true, but they are most often the result of hard work, determination and persistence.

When the end of the journey seems impossible to reach, all you need to do is take one more step.

Stay focused on your goal and remember that each small step will bring you a little closer.

When the road becomes hard to travel and it feels as if you'll never reach the end...

Look deep inside your heart and you will find strength you never knew you had.

Exactly what I have been saying for years. We make our own dreams come true and create our own luck.
