I used to know a girl who used shoes. She had over two-hundred pairs. But it’s all the same thing, really. People, for some stupid reason, think they can escape their sorrows.”

    “I hate that word, CAN’T. I wish it had never been dreamed
    up, spoken, or defined. I wish the concept of CAN’T could be
    eradicated not only from language, but more importantly from
    the psyche of a girl who I know is filled with so much CAN it seeps out of her pores and scents the air.”
    Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects. One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
    Jillian Michaels
