Say It With A Quote #4

This seemed rather appropriate given all the conversations I’ve been having lately about Lent and using this time to work towards becoming a better person.

Say It With A Quote #1

Rediscovered a favourite quote of mine today and wanted to share.  I also thought this might be something fun to do from time to time, so I’m calling this “Say It With A Quote #1”.

“There in only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

My mother made me read this book about a year back and at first I was reluctant to, but it ended up being a really inspirational story.  This quote really stuck with me as I was embarking on my weight-loss journey, and I scribbled it onto a notepad.  Coincidence that I found that notepad today as I take-off on this “Year of No Fear”?  Even more coincidence that I was looking for a notepad to sketch out a half-marathon training plan?  I think not.
