Let's make this the best August ever.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

I've been a Sparker for nine years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 42, 32, 29, 27, and 26. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (5), Chanel Ava (5), Lily Dona (5) and Chloe' Renee (3).

My ninth year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 67 and in my head I'm still 30.

This DONE GIRL will PERSEVERE.

    Thank you for sharing your story with me. Tonight has been very painful. I decided to cry to SparkPeople to distract me from this horrific nerve pain. Then I saw your comment on one of my posts. It gave me great comfort. 🤗🤗 keep in touch

    Hello! I finally was looking through my emails and found your comment on my picture. I replied on the photo, about how my kitty is like yours. I wonder if that's how a lot of tuxedos are? Please check out my reply!

    HI !! Ur post is just before the one I may post on (ought OH AGE !) the woman who plays the piano and has the picture of her at Carnegie Hall.

    Not sure if you watch the program about the older people who AMAZING things in their 60s, 70's, 80's and YES 90's !!! I think it's called "Forever Young" on NBC. I'm in my late 50's and 2 or 3 weeks ago was a lady who's 91 and she was doing GYMNASTICS !! I did while in school and I'd LOVE to get back to it. My feet are a HORRIBLE MESS, but you know "NEVER SAY NEVER" or those men who carry the boxes WILL CATCH US !!

    It's NOT to late to learn to play. NOT at all. If you live in an area where there's a gathering place and if it (or a VFW etc) ask if you can use theirs. Now a days money is not a problem for if you go onto youtube.com and put in "beginners lessons piano" or any such similar words or "easy songs for piano" you WILL find many!! I know, I have always wanted to learn the electric guitar and I finally bought one 6 yrs ago. Youtube is AMAZING at helping us. Than I wanted to learn yoga,,, some thing.

    WISHING YOU THE BEST and REACH OUT for that dream ! That's why we call them "A DREAM" and not "AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM" which is a GREAT song for you to learn.
