“Forget the past. No one becomes successful in the past.”
Peace. It does not mean being in a place of no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. ~unknown
Jonathan Swift -
- May you live all the days of your life.
Mary Shelley -
- Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose- a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.
Robert Louis Stevenson -
- You cannot run away from a weakness; you must sometimes fight it out or perish. And if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?
Dale Carnegie -
- Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Benjamin Disraeli -
- Nurture your mind with great thoughts for you will never go any higher than what you think.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Emerson
What lies behind us
and what lies before us
are small matters
To be enlightened is to be without anxiety over imperfection. Allow myself to find happiness in the only place that it can be found: my real messy, imperfect experience. ~ anon

Trying to do everything right promotes an all-or-nothing attitude. A better mindset: Believe that every little bit counts. It's small changes that are most effective.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
it is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
The Divine Light in me, salutes the Divine Light in you.
"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."
- Martha Washington
"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. you yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection." Buddha
Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.” ~ Albert Einstein
I started a weight loss program, on November 2006, and I lost the first 100 lbs on Nutrisystem and have more weight to lose, but have chosen to eat my own food.
Each day is new and I'm going to really learn what that means! Each day I have a choice to make a difference in my health. Each day I can reach for my goal.
Currently I am using my own foods, but am using the theory of Nutrisystem.
I exercise usually 6-7 times per week - try to vary it, usually brisk walk, stairs, abs, stretching, sometimes jogging.
