“Never let success get to your head, and never let failure get to your heart.” – Unknown
I generally don’t watch a lot of movies but particularly liked this excerpt from the Tim Burton movie Big Fish:
EDWARD: My muscles couldn’t keep up with my bones, and my bones couldn’t keep up with my body’s ambition. So I spent the better part of three years confined to my bed, with the World Book Encyclopedia being my only means of exploration. I had made it all the way to the “G’s,” hoping to find an answer to my gigantificationism, when I uncovered an article about the common goldfish.
YOUNG EDWARD: “Kept in a small bowl, the goldfish will remain small. With more space, the fish can grow double, triple, or quadruple its size.”
EDWARD: It occurred to me then, that perhaps the reason for my growth was that I was intended for larger things. After all, a giant man can’t have an ordinary-sized life.
In life we all need to room to grow. If your bowl is too small for your life or ambitions, find a different bowl and grow to be happy!

“In January 2009, I made the decision to get a grip, get out of my depression, and do life. I started running and started a blog. 120 pounds lost, but much more gained. This is how far I’ve come.”
