Life affirming. That was my thought leaving yoga on Monday. I saw two people walking in to their power vinyasa class and their bodies appeared to radiate to me, "we are life affirming." I think that's what yoga, exercise, sunshine, and vegan food are for me- life affirming. I just can't seem to say it enough.

What is life affirming for you?

My friend Roz Savage is very life affirming and a gift of perspective each day she shares her adventurous life on her blog, rozsavage.com. The other day she posted this poem and I hope she doesn't mind my passing it along. Please visit her blog too, you'll love it.

So here's the poem. I had a bit of it going through my head as I began my run today and it got me energized. xoxo

If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win, but don't think you can It's almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you've lost, For out of the world you'll find Success begins with a fellow's will. It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are. You've got to think high to rise. You've got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But sooner or later the man who wins Is the one who thinks he can.
