    “Beginning in itself has no value,
    it is an end
    which makes beginning meaningful,
    we must end what we begun.”
    “Whatever it takes to finish things,
    finish.
    You will learn more from a glorious failure
    than you ever will from something you never finished.”

    HAPPY 7th YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY to Brandon & I
    “It is not a lack of love,

    but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
    Our relationship started as a friendship,
    3863 km or 2400 miles away.
    Brandon Best in Memphis
    & Me in Surrey, BC, Canada.
    Our friendship started on Dave Palumbo's ****************** ....

    DAWN & BRANDON OUR STORY:
    for those who don't know we were married 7 yrs ago TODAY September in Las Vegas


    on the Sunday of the Olympia Weekend...

    we planned & paid for the wedding before we ever met each other in person.

    We met not on a dating site,

    but on a Online Bodybuilding website ****************** owned by my then Coach Dave Palumbo.

    Dave started RXMuscle Feb 2009

    and gave me my own thread on the Forums.

    Brandon had been a Moderator on the Official Muscular Development Magazine forum

    where Dave was working when I hired him then got fired.

    So Brandon along with alot of Dave's loyal followers left MD and came to RX.

    Brandon & I struck up a friendship as we would see each others posts,

    and we would respond both on the forum and private message...

    after awhile we both got "Blackberry" cellphones with BBM instant messaging,

    so we would message each other throughout the day every day.

    Early in 2010 I said "I'm going to the Olympia this year" (I had never been),

    Brandon said "i'm going to the Olympia this year too".(he’d never been)..

    more time passes...

    i said "I booked my flight"

    Brandon says "I booked my hotel"

    I ask "Does it have a kitchen?"

    He said "yes a full kitchen"

    so I booked my room there also sharing it with Vicky Lee.

    More time passes

    and that year I competed twice in 2 Canadian National Shows.

    Brandon helped me alot

    and I noticed how he had a calmning effect on me like no one ever had in my life,

    I can be quite a livewire

    and he had an uncanny way of calming me down

    which i'd never before experienced...

    then one day he messages me and asks "would you like to go to this Olympia After Party with me?"

    I reply "Well you better be careful or i'll get you drunk and marry you !"

    he says "You don't have to get me drunk to marry me"

    I thought to myself hmmmmmmmnnnn....

    more time passes...

    one day we are talking and I message him and say

    "Hell why don't we just get married on Sunday after the Olympia?

    " he said "Ok"...

    so we did...

    we met for the 1st time at the Las Vegas Baggage claim on the Thursday

    (see video of it all here:http://youtu.be/4GnMACnQv6Q)

    we went straight from the baggage claim,

    to get the marriage license,

    to get the Olympia VIP tickets

    to the grocery store,

    to the Hotel..

    then Friday & Saturday was all day and night Olympia events,

    and Sunday we were married.

    His flight was Sunday night,

    when I took him to the airport for a late flight,

    cried all the way back to the hotel,

    not long after I arrived there he called said he was on his way back to the hotel,

    they had overbooked the flight

    so he got off and was to fly out Monday instead.

    So we had our wedding night together after all...

    Monday he went back to Memphis, TN, USA

    and me back to Canada.

    He moved up here to Canada Nov 21st, 2010

    and we have been together ever since...

    HERE'S TO MANY MANY MORE YEARS TOGETHER,

    LOVE YOU ALWAYS, Dawn xo

    “Some of the most valued things we have in life
    come from changes or mistakes.
    Don't be afraid if you failed
    or if you lose someone you love,
    there is always the rainbow after the rain.
    And remember that all change is hard at first,
    messy in the middle
    and gorgeous at the end.”

    “You never change your life until
    you step out of your comfort zone;
    change begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
    “Believe in yourself.
    You are braver than you think,
    more talented than you know,
    and capable of more than you imagine.”
    “Only those who dare to fail greatly
    can ever achieve greatly.”
    “Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do.
    Don't let the limitations of others limit your vision.
    If you can remove your self-doubt
    and believe in yourself,
    you can achieve what you never thought possible.”

    “The reason people fail to reach their goals is
    because they give up too early.
    They don't understand that most successes are built upon
    foundations of multiple attempts.”
    “When the fear of failure triumphs over
    the repugnance of mediocrity,
    we must resign ourselves to the status quo.
    Every change,
    every opportunity
    to do something different
    will send us running to hide beneath a cover of excuses and complacency.
    Those few courageous souls who delve into the lands where they risk failure,
    will be soundly ridiculed.
    They will be condemned not because they dream,
    but rather for making their dreams real
    and destroying the illusion that all that can be thought has been thought,
    all that can be done has been done,
    and all that can be felt has been felt.
    In their enthusiastic insolence,
    they see life filled with infinite possibilities
    and they know they must chart their own course,
    even if they must go alone

    The purpose of life, after all,
    is to live it,
    to taste experience to the utmost,
    to reach out eagerly
    and without fear for newer
    and richer experience.

    People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
    Love them anyway.


    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
    Do good anyway.


    If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
    Succeed anyway.


    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
    Do good anyway.


    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
    Be honest and frank anyway.


    The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
    Think big anyway.


    People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
    Fight for a few underdogs anyway.


    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
    Build anyway.


    People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
    Help people anyway.


    Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
    Give the world the best you have anyway.”

    The saddest summary of a life contains
    three descriptions:
    could have, might have, and should have.
    There’ll be two dates on your tombstone
    and all your friends will read ’em
    but all that’s gonna matter is
    that little dash between ’em.

    “Safety is an illusion
    and perhaps it's better to challenge it sometimes,
    to see how far we can go,
    to learn about the stuff we are made of.”
    “Everything is a risk.
    Not doing anything is a risk.
    It's up to you.”

    no success!
    The strongest thunder strikes often
    bring the heaviest rainfall!
    The weight of your fulfillment depends on
    how wide you cast your nets!”

    A man sooner or later discovers that
    he is the master-gardener of his soul,
    the director of his life.
    Work on yourself first,
    take responsibility for your own progress.
    The willingness to accept responsibility
    for one's own life i
    s the source from which self-respect springs.
    “Today I am in control
    because I want to be.
    I have my fingers on the switch,
    but have lived a lifetime ignoring the control I have
    over my own world.
    Today is different.”

    “Life will break you.
    Nobody can protect you from that,
    and living alone won't either,
    for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
    You have to love.
    You have to feel.
    It is the reason you are here on earth.
    You are here to risk your heart.
    You are here to be swallowed up.
    And when it happens that you are broken,
    or betrayed, or left, or hurt,
    or death brushes near,
    let yourself sit by an apple tree
    and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps,
    wasting their sweetness.
    Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

    “All successful people men and women are big dreamers.
    They imagine what their future could be,
    ideal in every respect,
    and then they work every day
    toward their distant vision,
    that goal or purpose.”
    “Dare to dream!
    If you did not have the capability to make
    your wildest wishes come true,
    your mind would not have the capacity to conjure
    such ideas in the first place.
    There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve,
    except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination.
    What you believe to be possible
    will always come to pass
    to the extent that you deem it possible.
    It really is as simple as that.”

    “A determined will,
    grounded on a clear order of rank of values,
    coupled with organic strength of outlook,
    will also one day
    despite all hindrances
    enforce its realization in all domains.”
    “What are the four 'D' steps that ensure success?


    1) DREAM
    2) DESIRE
    3) DETERMINATION
    4) DESTINATION


    Follow these four 'D' steps,
    never giving up or doubting yourself along the way,
    and you will become the person you were meant to be.
