Magazine Wisdom

I've been doing a lot of spring-cleaning, and my current task is ripping out articles I want to keep from old magazines that are gathering dust in my room and on my bookshelf. This forces me to at least skim the magazines that I was complaining I didn't even have time to read anymore. Turns out you can get some pretty good stuff from these glossies too! I've compiled dozens of recipes now, for example, and I'm really inspired to host another dinner just to try them out.

Also, I found this great passage from Fitness magazine (I'm a sucker for good quotes, can you tell?):
Think about the times in life you've really succeeded at a personal goal. Chances are, you focused on it with intent, shutting out distractions and doubt. Focus is knowing what matters to you and committing to it. It's choosing to ignore the white noise in your own head. When you truly target your mind, your actions will follow - and that is the surest way to write your own future. What are you going to focus on today?
