Let's make June our best month ever.
�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, 28, 26, and 25. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (4), 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.

    Hello! Thank you for the Spark Goodie and commenting on my page. Congratulations to you too for being voted a Spark People Motivator! I have been on this site for a very long time, and you're right, there are not many of us left! I'm determined to make it work, so I keep coming back and reconnecting with people from when I started really makes me happy.

    You're doing a great job yourself! We can do this!
