Make AUGUST Your Best Month.

Let's make AUGUST our best month ever.

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

I've been a Sparker for seven years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 40, 31, 27, 26, and 24. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (3), Chanel Ava (3), Lily Dona (3) and Chloe' Renee (16 months).

I'm happy for all my Sparker Friends, who have been so wonderful to me and to give Nathan encouragement.
My seventh year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 65 and in my head I'm still 30.
