When things go wrong

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

When things go wrong as they sometimes will. When the road you are trudging seems all up hill. When the funds are low and the debts are high, and you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When cares is pressing you down a bit. Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns. As every one of us sometimes learns. And many a failure turns about. when he might have won had it struck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow you may succeed with another blow. Success is failure turned inside out--The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and you never can tell how close you are. I t may be near when it seems so far, do stick to the fight when you are hardest hit--its when things seem worst that you must not quit. Unknown
I thought this was pretty cool. And the truth. I can remember times if I had just held on it would have been a different outcome. Oh well live and learn. I'm on Day thirty eight of eating healthy and exercising and I want to see how far I can go. Wouldn't be neat if I could go a year? We'll see.

Why not?

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

If you view all the things that happen to you, both good and bad as opportunities then you operate out of a higher level of consciousness.
I suppose that could be true. Its hard sometimes to view all things that happen to you in a positive light but I reckon you could just always try to learn something from it. I try to ask questions like what can I learn from this, is there anything I could have changed or avoided. You know all those questions we ask not just why me? Sometimes that is why not you? You might can handle things better than your neighbor or friend or children, etc. I know we must be strong and optimistic and loving and caring and everything else will take care of itself.

Day after

Monday, February 08, 2010

Wheeeee I made it. I was worried that during the excitement of the Super Bowl I might eat what I should not. I make sure I had my popcorn and nuts and unsweetened tea close by. I stayed on my program and was I proud this morning. You know you just never know how things are going to effect you. My granddaughter had a birthday Saturday and I did not mess up. My son turned 35 today and I did not mess up. I'm proud of me. My husband has a birthday this month and of course Valentine Day. I feel like I am running an obstacle course. Oh well it will improve my skills to run the course and come out on the other side victorious. It will teach me to face life without reaching for sweets just face it head on and deal with it. I have learned that 10 minutes of exercise will change your mood. I forget what kind of chemicals you release in your brain but they are feel good chemicals that lets you cope with things better. Now isn't that neat its right there all you have to do is do some kind of exercise and it is released and wala you are better.
My son and his kids came over to watch the game and my Alyssa was watching and she saw the cheerleaders and she said I can do that (she's 4) We started acting like we were shaking our pompoms and just acting silly and her daddy said yes and I would be down on the sidelines with a bat. We had fun watching the game and cutting up.

Birthday girl

Saturday, February 06, 2010

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. ?
We finally found our granddaughter the chairs and table we wanted for her birthday. We took it over last night and put it together. She kept saying this is my table and chairs. She was making her brother sit down where she could feed him. She wanted a pink horse, so we got her a pink stick horse and she loved it. Around and around her and her brother went riding their horses. Her dad got her a pink guitar and she played us some music. Her other grandparents will get her today and take her to lunch. I called her this morning to wish her Happy Birthday and she said hello my nana and I said hello my Alyssa. She sounded so grown up. I know before I can turn around she will be 16 and I pray I'm there to see her and her brother. She will have her cake and ice cream tonight. She also had butterfly balloons.
She loves butterflies.
Keep on Sparking sweet Spark friends. I must be in the Spark groove no temptations!!!
I am focused on Day by Day. Woo Hoo.
