Secrets of Success
| Pounds lost: 26.0
Lying around, pondering the problems of the world,
I realized that at my age I don't really give a rat's rump anymore...
If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal...
A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still mostly blubber...
A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years,
while a tortoise doesn't run and does mostly nothing except eat, yet it lives for 150 years.
And they tell us to exercise? I don't think so!

This tip is from Cleveland Clinic Chief Wellness Officer Mike Roizen, MD, from his new book, "This Is Your Do-Over". Here's a sneak peek at his essential do-over deeds.
We all have disagreements sometimes. Life isn't about holding hands and singing happy tunes to hide our troubles. However, you need to decide if you want to be a "but" or an "and" kind of person. The "but" people don't want solutions. They want to settle. They want to wallow in their misery.
The "and" people find solutions to problems. They inspire others to do their best. They contribute to the growth of people and ideas - and, ultimately, to the health of us all. Even if you are an avowed lifelong naysayer, you still have the opportunity to discover your inner enthusiast. Once you find your purpose and passion, your optimism will increase and your do-over becomes stronger and stronger. In the end, optimism is really just about cultivating happiness in your everyday moments.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. - Anna Quindlen.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do. - Eleanor Roosevelt
No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it. ~ Jean de La Bruyere

Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.

Come , little leaves " said the wind one day .
Come down to the meadow to play
Put on your dresses of red and gold
For the summer is past
And the days grow cold .
Dancing and leaping
The leaves went along
Until the winter called them
To end this sweet song
Soon fast asleep
In their earthy beds
The snow lays a cover over their heads .
We got 6 inches of snow and just lazy light powder coming down tonight.
Sore from shoveling the walks but don't think it will last too long!
I built a snowman and made 3 snow angels in the front lawn!! So glad I had the mittens and boots within easy reach!
