Thanks for visiting!

I'm fairly new here. I've joined some teams and I'm learning my way around the site. If I've added you as a friend and you have no idea who I am, it's because I'm actively looking for like-minded folks on SP. (I'll happily share my methods and indicators if you contact me.) Please message me or add me as a friend if you think we have something in common.

I have about 45 pounds to lose.

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill

Thanks for your comment. It's like so many other really subtle, "soft bigotry" sorts of things. We don't give it a thought, but we perpetuate these cultural stereotypes in this way. (I'm considering right now whether that's too harsh a judgment, but I don't think so.)

Sometimes even if you're right, you're wrong. I got called on using the word "niggardly" one time - a perfectly good word that means "stingy" and has no relation whatsoever to the ethnic slur. Even though I was technically correct, I was stomped on by the editor, and now I begrudgingly agree.

The words we use shape our thoughts, and if we want a different sort of world, we have to use words that will frame that world.

Heck, sorry. Lecture over. Climbing down off the podium now. emoticon

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx
