feeding life with energy

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Found this at

Family, friends, food, and health,
Greatest treasures, truest wealth.
We all enjoy being happy and free,
Living life our way, is the key.

Incredible beauty, nature surrounds,
Things to see, and wonderful sounds.
Every life, has so much potential,
Feed it with love, that is essential.

Sometimes there are things, we don't approve,
We're in control, we may change and improve.
Life is here, for us to explore,
Feed it with energy, and you shall get more.

Places unknown

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

“We are homesick most for the places we have never known.”
― Carson McCullers

The weight loss journey is rather like being homesick for a place unknown. It has been so long since I was thin that I can't remember what it's like. I was just a teenager. Now, as an adult, I have just this romanticized notion of what it is like to be thin. And I wonder if I let it keep me back from losing the weight.

    Guess the solution is to put an end to your homesickness emoticon

    I dream about what it will be like if I lost this excess weight and my first thought is of happiness.

Live like a child

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities
of an 8-year-old again.
I want to go to McDonald’s and think that it’s a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because
you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn’t bother you, because you didn’t know what you didn’t know and you didn’t care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don’t want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip,
illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind
word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So…here’s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this further, you’ll have to catch me first, ’cause,

“Tag! You’re it.”

Don't believe everything fortune cookies tells you. Just because they're sweet doesn't mean they're right. -


productive day

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I feel so productive today...went to a baby shower an hour from home, shopped for the gift and wrapped it an hour before going, cleaned out the garden.
