i saw this on entry on one of my most favorite blogs in the world, Diane Pernet.
Paul J Meyers' and C. Phillips' words on www.astrologyandbeyond might be a good mantra for us all for 2009:
"Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses on your powers, instead of your problems."
"Destiny is simply having the vision to realize your dreams and the perseverance to keep working toward them."
