Enjoy the moments in each day!

I feel like I am getting back in the groove of healthy living after all the changes that have taken place in my life the past year. We are settled here in central Florida, and while we intend to RV in the summer months, this year we are staying until my dh has totally recuperated from two knee replacement surgeries. This is giving me the opportunity to focus on my healthy habits that need to be life-long, not just for the time I am trying to get to my goal weight. I am grateful for all that ...

Personal Information:
I'm Amy, originally from southeastern PA, but after selling our home of 23 years, we moved to central Florida and hope to RV in the summer months. I am adjusting to an early retirement after teaching for 30 years. I've been married to my husband, Dave for almost 26 years, and we have a 25 yo son named Sean and two adorable and feisty Cairn terriers, Max and Sophie.

Other Information:
I enjoy a variety of different activities from reading and computer-time to hiking and traveling. I am a never-ending proponent of personal development.

~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE
TIME FOR IT.

If you don't know where to start,
START ANYWHERE.

If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO
HELP YOU OUT.

If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

If you don't know how to do it, TRY
DOING WHAT YOU CAN.

If you believe that you can do it,
YOU WILL.

~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
Love all, trust a few, do
Wrong to none.
(William Shakespeare)
Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!

emoticon Today's quote is by C. JoyBell C.:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
