Words that keeps me going ......

"If it is to be, it is up to me."

****************************************
"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsibility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

****************************************

�I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.� Jimmy Dean

****************************************

We can't change the cards we're dealt, only how we play the hand." - Randy Pausch

****************************************

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen

****************************************

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordan

    emoticon emoticon Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies emoticon emoticon
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    If you get melted chocolate eggs and bunnies all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
    Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.That goes for Chocolate Easter eggs, and Easter Bunnies.

    Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
    It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.

    If you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies you get in your Easter Basket, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies, what's wrong with you?
    If calories are an issue, store your chocolate eggs on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate bunnies & eggs to protect themselves.

    Money talks. Chocolate bunnies and eggs sing.
    Chocolate bunnies & chocolate eggs have many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

    The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from the store in a hot car.
    The solution: Eat the eggs in the car park.

    I borrowed this from another Sparker (SHARON10002), and decided to share with my SparkFriends as these are great thoughts for February:

    F - Forge ahead no matter how small the step.
    E - Each new day offers the chance to start anew.
    B - Believe in yourself and all that you are, and wish to be.
    R - Remember the reason why you started this journey.
    U - Unless you move, the place where you are is the place you will always be.
    A - A bad day is only as bad as you let it be.
    R - Roll with life's punches, and rise again.
    Y - You are loved . . .
