I found spark people in september 2009 and I am totally fascinated - there are not many days that I have not logged in so far.

I have found that support from people who are struggling with the same issues as me, really helps.

In new year 2014 I am struggling and taking two step forwards, one step back and making great plans for 2014...

I had the recommendation to put up some meaningful quotes and here goes:

:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

If you spend all your time looking for Him,
you might miss Her when She shows up.

Neale Donald Walsch

"I had the blues because I had no shoes
until upon the street I met a man who had no feet.

Denis Waitely"

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur
when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

M. Scott Peck
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~::~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

"Destiny is not a matter of chance;
it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for;
it is a thing to be achieved."

William Jennings Bryan
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~

"When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share
our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand."

Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

'Come to the edge', he said.
"They said, 'We are afraid.'
"'Come to the edge,'" he said.
They came. He pushed them.
....and they flew."

Guillaume Apollinaire

When I look into the future, it's so
bright it burns my eyes.

Oprah Winfrey
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:

A life lacking the emotional upheavals
of depression and despair, fear and
anxiety, grief and sadness, anger and
the agony of forgiving, confusion and
doubt, criticism and rejection, will not
only be useless to ourselves, it will be
useless to others.

emoticon Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.

H appiness if found within not in people and things.

A cceptance of the present regardless of what fears/inner demons you may
be facing

P ersistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may
experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

P atience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials
and tribulations life often presents to us unexpectedly.

I nside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a s
smile on your face

N ever give up yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart
and a positive mind set

E ndless love and happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

S pirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural
state of being

S trive in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights
experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live
as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my page; it's always good to hear from you. Part of my success this last time was surrendering, in 2001 I gave up all goals but health. I committed to counting calories, allowing up to 2000 calories a day--maintenance level. That commitment spawned my one rule: NO MINDLESS EATING. Over time some foods proved to just not be worth the calories as I do not like to be hungry! Foods that I can't control are enjoyed out; not kept in my house. I've embraced the importance of being active. I slowly lost weight and it took 5 years for my weight to settle at what has always seemed a healthy weight for me and now I try to stay within a few pounds of that, leaving room for normal fluctuations. I've done that a little over nine years now. I keep it simple. Most difficult challenge is social, I no longer eat to make other people more comfortable. Those close to me accept that. You will find your path; don't let others sway you. Your health is worth the effort!

“Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.”
—Rollo May

Some days we wake up to overwhelming feelings that things look bleak. We see loss and danger around us, and we fear for the future. That is when our character is most tested. That is when we are called to continue to just put one foot in front of the other. There is no need to solve all our problems right away or to change the world immediately. Courage isn’t necessarily a feeling of confidence that we can triumph over all odds. It’s knowing that we can move ahead one step at a time, and it’s taking positive action in the face of our fears.
Each day we can do small things that are constructive. By these small things, we can place ourselves on the positive side of life’s equation. We can put our weight where we want to go. That is courage.
Today, in the face of my despair, I will focus my efforts on the side of my hopes and values
