Words that keeps me going ......

"If it is to be, it is up to me."

****************************************
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind... let it be something good. Author Unknown

****************************************

"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsibility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

****************************************

There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them ~ Denis Waitley

****************************************

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” Jimmy Dean

****************************************

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordon

****************************************

If you always do what you’ve done, you will always get what you’ve always got. -Ed Foreman

    emoticon emoticon Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies emoticon emoticon
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    If you get melted chocolate eggs and bunnies all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
    Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.That goes for Chocolate Easter eggs, and Easter Bunnies.

    Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
    It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.

    If you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies you get in your Easter Basket, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies, what's wrong with you?
    If calories are an issue, store your chocolate eggs on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate bunnies & eggs to protect themselves.

    Money talks. Chocolate bunnies and eggs sing.
    Chocolate bunnies & chocolate eggs have many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

    The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from the store in a hot car.
    The solution: Eat the eggs in the car park.
