I shall succeed!!!

Hi, come on in! Welcome to my page. Those of you who have visited with me before will have noticed that I have done some renovations - I have replaced negativity with positivity, so to speak. Instead of the expanding list of updates each time that I had to restart after I fell off the wagon, I now have a list of my favorite quotes that I use as a tool for staying focused, determined and committed to succeed, I hope that if you do read them you too will gather motivational strength from them. ...

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born April 10, you are the kind to stumble into golden opportunities again and again in your lifetime -- yet what is really important is not so much the luck that you display in being in the right place at the right time but the skill you demonstrate in turning those lucky moments into lasting periods of fortune, prosperity and success. In other words, luck may start you off, but your skill and tenacity will see you reap the greatest possible benefits out of any lucky stroke. You understand, too, that there is no substitute for good old-fashioned hard work.

You are known for being highly opinionated -- but not without reason; you insist on knowing a great deal about the world around you, and whenever you do share your opinions -- which is often -- others can be sure that you do, quite simply, know what you're talking about in most situations.

Hope your day was wonderful!

Hi Kayalda! I ran across your name/page as I was visiting the High Blood Pressure SparkTeam site. I love your philosophy, your page, and am excited to find someone who's journey mirrors the one that I am on (my goals are to lose 97 lbs and get off BP medication). it would be great to connect as SparkFriends.

I joined SP on January 3 (the day after my 52nd birthday), and made a commitment to finally get myself to a healthy weight and fitness level. So, here I am and I am finding the SP community to be a HUGE helpful community. I wish you much success in your journey and I'll check in with you from time-to-time.

Oh, by the way . . .
