    Hey Evelyn .
    Impelling quotes . For a new start a good attitude is must , a positive attitude seems obvious but new beginnings are intimidating and scary and can be overshadowed by negative thoughts and doubts . Loved the read .

    We all have to start somewhere. I would love to hear your results with the alkaline diet. I’m going to go read it now.

    HA! Nice! All the points you listed are good, but this on stood out to me: If all you can do is crawl, start crawling. – Rumi

    Change is not easy, everyone please just accept this. But change is possible and just takes work. It took work to do what we are doing now, so it will take work to do something else.

    I think the biggest challenge may actually be in believing that we can change, and we can. We have to develop new routine which can be hard, and have to let go of things that interfere with the new routine.

    Congrats Evelyn on starting your new routine.
