present and let it in…and move.
Then watch how it with each thought your body moves and how each
movement becomes easier and more a part of who you are. And the more
you move, the more vibrant and alive you become, and the more you want
Simply stated, movement begets movement like success begets success. The more you do, the fitter you get, the fitter you get, the more you do.
