How Beautiful Women Look at Themselves
Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister (Mum I can't go to school looking like this!)
Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall."
but decides she's going out anyway.
Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "hair too straight/too curly" -
but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, so she's going out anyway.
Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "clean" and goes out anyway.
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.
Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore and goes out and conquers the world.
Age 70: She looks at herself & sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.

~~1~~ ""THE VALUE OF ONE"" ~~1~~
To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train .
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.
Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

~~~~~ ~~~Patience~~~ ~~~~~
Let's be realistic. You won't drop two jean sizes in a day.
You won't lose 50 lbs. in one month.
You're going to binge every now and then.
You will go a day or two without working out.
Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there.
You're going to try new techniques, and they're aren't going to work.
You're a human being. You're going to fail.
But nothing great is accomplished without a few obstacles.
So, when you come to those obstacles,
tell yourself "I CAN DO IT," and JUST KEEP GOING!!!
You CAN conquer the obstacles
It's a beautiful day here in MN..doing lots of biking, walking!!

~~~~~ ~~~~~~~LISTENING~~~~~~~ ~~~~~
Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly.
Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.
If animals could talk, the world would lose its best listeners.
"Silent" and "listen" are spelled with the same letters.
God gave us two ears and one mouth, so we can hear twice as much as we say.
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
Home is where you can say anything you like cause nobody listens to you anyway.
~~~~~~~Are You A Good Listener?~~~~~~~
