I've always loved listening to soothing piano music. When I first heard this piano music piece, it definately was relaxing. I had to find out who this pianist was. All of the rest of his music pieces are amazing. But Nuvole Bianche is my favorite. If you like his music Just look up his name on Youtube and listen to them all!

Only Hope - Song

Some people's voices are so amazing along with inspirational and meaningful lyrics. Listening to music like this can change your day.

There's a song that's inside of my soul.
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold.
But you sing to me over and over and over again.

So, I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope.

Sing to me the song of the stars.
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again.
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again.

So I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I know now, you're my only hope.

I give you my destiny.
I'm giving you all of me.
I want your symphony, singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs, I'm giving it back.

So I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I pray, to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope.

What You Say & How You Say It

What you say and how you say it can greatly influence your relationships; this includes friends, lovers, and co-workers. A few simple words, depending on how they’re spoken, can lift someone up or crush them. There is power in words!

Finish Strong

Finish Strong is more than a statement, it's an attitude. It's an attitude of believing you can do something and having the courage and determination to see it through. And of course, you can apply this "finish strong attitude" to your business or your life!
Finish Strong is filled with amazing stories about people from all walks of life who, in the face of adversity, against all odds...finished strong!
There is one thing that we all have in common. That some point in our life, we will face adversity. It's not a matter of if but...when.

The 10 Rules for Staying Positive

Most of us want to be positive. It's advantageous to possess a sunny outlook. Doors open to optimists. They make friends, earn respect, close sales, produce loyal clients, and others enjoy and want to be like them. The question is how can we do that consistently?
That's what Attitude is Everything is all about! It's filled with great stories, great quotes and many "a-ha" moments that will turn the switch from "off" to "on." Not only will you love it, anyone you give it to will love it too! It's a perfect gift for any occasion for friends, family and employees.

My Running Journey

So I did it! I completed my first full marathon! It was the most perfect weather for running. Sunny with yet a cool was almost meant to be because the next day was pouring rain! The experience running that distance was absolutely amazing with the scenic route, the crowds cheering, the volunteers and signs of encouragement really helped keep me going even though my thighs, calves and feet felt like they could go no further at times.

Running has become a part of my life that has inspired me in many ways. This running journey has yet to come to an end and probably won't.  It has improved my health, my strength mentally and physically, created ever lasting friendships, accomplished goals, motivated myself and others...and so much more but most of all, I've enjoyed the journey. Thought I'd document my running journey in a video to look back at my memories and maybe even inspire you in some way.

Special thanks to my running buddies who made it happen to acheive my first full marathon! 

Yvonne Huyhn
Mike Sato
Trevor Kwok
Denis Chen

To  Shaun Lockwood that made it special to be there on my race day and helped capture our precious
moments.  And to all of you who have supported me throughout my  running journey with
encouraging  comments on Facebook, Twitter , directly & in spirit. Its been absolutely amazing! 

I couldn't have done this without you all!

Finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind.
A state of mind says anything is possible.
 - John Hanc, running writer

I vividly remember seeing these signs in neon pink words on a black background that people held up in the last half of the run...

YOU seek
YOU dream
YOU commit
YOU train
YOU preserve
YOU feel
YOU inspire

Set No Limitations

Your have powers you never dreamed of.
You can do things you never thought you could do.
There are no limitations in what you can do...
Except the limitations of of your own mind.
