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.

Scott Peck

Spiced Chickpeas with Yogurt and Pine Nuts

The Good News More people should eat chickpeas at breakfast: The legumes have lots of folate, essential minerals and fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar. The chefs at Marisa May's restaurant, SD26, sometimes make these stewy, savory chickpeas for her when she hasn't had a chance to eat something filling at home.

Thank you for the comments on my blogs. I'm curious of course: How much time did your sister spend on the stationary bike per day?
To be honest I would be pretty glad if I could lose just ONE kilo....
