A Matter of Heart
Publisher: Delacorte
Release Date: May 2015
Readers will happily sink into this emotionally grounded, contemporary young adult novel about the sudden end of one girl's Olympic swimming dreams and the struggles she endures before realizing there are many things that define who we are.

Sixteen-year-old Abby Lipman is on track to win the state swim championships and qualify for the Olympic trials when a fainting incident at a swim meet leads to the diagnosis of a deadly heart condition. Now Abby is forced to discover who she is without the one thing that's defined her entire life.

I love quotes! I can’t tell you how many times quotes have helped me think about things in a different way, helped me through tough moments and kept me positive when I was ready to scream. When I come across a quote that I especially love, I write it down on a sticky note and I paste it up around my desk. Sometimes I even make up my own quotes, like this one:

This quote reminds me to shut off that negative voice in my head. Maybe you have one too—that voice telling you you’re no good and that you can’t or you shouldn’t or you never will…all those negative things? So this quote comes in handy quite often!

Most of the quotes I have up are inspirational for me as a writer but they also seem to apply to life in general. Here they are:

So, that’s what’s inspiring me. What inspires you? I hope you’ll share in the comments. 

"I'd probably stop and dance instead of jogging while listening to this, so why picked it? 
Because I LOVE IT *wink*"

"You can't just take a walk while listening to this song. 
I'd jump then run then jump, this is just perfect"

"You'll literally get carried away with this song. I know it doesn't sound that 
upbeat like the other songs but I could sing this song all the way while working out even when I'm in the bus sitting, so you see..."

"I love love this song so much that it's on repeat every time  I hear it. I mean this is just a perfect background song while you're working out and then somebody (who's hot*wink*) see you--hah in my dreams hehe"

"People you better move out of my way when this song is on because I'm gonna work this out!(This is only happening in my mind)"

So yeah that's some of my to-go songs while working out, what's yours? Let me know in the comments below! ;)
