I am here to change my life. Little by little I am gaining control over it.
I am a Clinical Massage Therapist. It is gives me an appreciation of the human body and pushing me to get healthier.

I enjoy walking, reading, collaging, crocheting, jewelry making, camping and traveling. I hope to one day enjoy more active things like jogging, rock climbing, and hiking.

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world... as in being able to remake ourselves.

I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do.

We must accept responsibility for a problem before we can solve it. We cannot solve a problem by saying "It's not my problem," and hoping that someone else will solve it for us. We can solve a problem only when we say "This is my problem and it's up to me to solve it." M. Scott Peck

"Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast." Norman Vincent Peale

"When you wholeheartedly adopt a 'with all your heart' attitude and go all out with the positive principle,
you can do incredible things." Norman Vincent Peale

    I just read your blog, then realized it was from May, and you might not find my comment if I didn't say hello here. (I just joined the Positive Bloggers Team. I was hunting for some team members blogs to read, and chose yours. I really did enjoy it. Building up a readership is kind of a slow task, but it does happen, so I hope that you will blog again.)

    thanks for your encouragement! It is so HARD to be patient with myself. But you are right. I am learning how to be healthy. Thank you for the reminder, and the permission to be human! (need that sometimes....)

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment. I learned several years back that it's my choice when I wake up each morning to either have a good day or a bad day. By taking back my power of choice, I have found that my attitude has changed, my life has changed and I'm learning to love myself.
