Dear <<First Name>>,

I’ve had to work REALLY hard at believing in and holding high standards for myself! This quote from Kino MacGregor reminds me of what what my husband and teacher would say to me all the time: You have to believe in your strength and yourself!

The journey of Strength (Sthira) strength is about finding that spiritual awareness deep in the center of yourself. Strength is a calm and equanimous mind that remains peaceful and balanced in the face of the inevitable ups and downs of life. Faith and strength are equal parts of action. Being Strong is making a decision to never quit. Ask yourself what action can you take to make one small step toward accomplishing your dreams? - Kino MacGregor
