There’s just something about summer that brings out a person’s inner sassiness. After a long bitter winter, I’ve watched everyone around me blossom in one way or another with the change of season. It’s as if summer wakes us, stirs our creativity and reminds us of what it means to feel alive again.

This past year has been an exceptionally difficult one for everyone I know. It seems that 2013 bullied and prodded at us all. Perhaps you can relate. But if I have learned anything after a year of such turmoil, it is to make the most of what we CAN control in life, for there are many unexpected glitches (to put it mildly) along life’s journey that are most certainly out of our hands.

I think that we often forget that we HAVE choices in life. I have been guilty of this myself. Recently, I have started practicing the habit of reminding myself each morning that the power of choice is within.

As for the sass,  it’s definitely time to bring it back – full force.

Not long ago, a friend of mine sent me the following video. It exemplifies a positive way of thinking that we should all strive to practice daily. I hope you find it as motivational as I do.
