Four months left in this year. Let's use them.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

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 eight years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 41, 31, 29, 27, and 26. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (5), Chanel Ava (4), Lily Dona (4) and Chloe' Renee (2).

My eighth year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 66 and in my head I'm still 30.

This DONE GIRL will PERSEVERE.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. How do I found ALA-Non. Is it a group? I do not know a lot about it. Thank you for the book suggestions. I know my hormones are off even when the readings are right. :) I am so excited to read that book!

    Right now, I don't trust counselors. One of them told me my family just has a can't so attitude amd I felt like my trust was gained and squashed and two other counselor's said she was trying to help. That is not "help." I know there are good counselors in this world somewhere though but i have to get the trust back first.

    Well, my mom takes care of my grand,a amd aunt and I watch my sister and calm her worries. My mom is a Leo amd I am an Aries. :)

    Also, your son has been through a lot! What a warrior! I wish hm the best! :)

    We'll, it is a good thing it is going to be Fall if you hate winter! I am only kidding. Is that because you live somewhere where there are harsh winters? I would hate that! In California, I don't have to worry about it snowing. There are aspects that are depressing in Fall but things I love as well. :)
