Just as I started to recognize bad food, I've started to recognize toxic people.
They haunt my life and leave me no strength & energy.
But, who are they?
Colleagues, friends, ex-boyfriends and some are even in my family.
They have something in common: they always complain, they're always the victims of... and they're never happy until they make me feel as negative as they do.
I'd like to give you a checklist, anyway these people are:
self-indulging (drugs, alcohol, & so on)
and never let you go, if you just give them space & time.
Now it's hard to let go, but I'm learning the hard way I cannot let them spoil my life.
How's it been for you? Have you succeeded in recognizing these people????

I've just seen the new extraordinary name for the latest novelty from my favourite cosmetics make, Clinique.
It's called 'EVEN BETTER. '
It's so promising. It suggests it'll add so many improvements to your skin and I just can't wait to try it.
Anyway this is not a promotion and it has to do with the role model we're all meant to be.
I remember as a teenager I looked at adult women and men with discouragement & despair.
Who would I choose as a model?
I really liked the women in ads, I remember secretly choosing the model for a beer as 'true' mother since I was three.
Beauty was a must in my favourite adult role model.
But I also wanted intelligence, competence and sympathy to be there....did I ask way too much???
My real mother has always been beautiful, but she never had the time for an hairdo, for make up, for herself.
Now I want to be 'EVEN BETTER' than the old generation for the teenagers I meet every day.
I want to convey competence, experience, sympathy AND beauty.
I want to be beautiful on the outside & from the inside.
Is this too much??'
Now, what's your role model?
How can you set yourself to be a role model for younger generations????

Well even if my right leg's been hurting for three days after gym, I have to tell you I'm really feeling different this time.
I used to look at myself in the mirror and say ' you're ugly' 'you're fat' 'look at those fat rolls' and hated myself all the more.
Now I'm starting to say 'You're a winner' and 'that's amazing'....I guess changing the way you look at yourself is first step into a new you.
The one you'll spend your whole life with.
Anyway I don't want to be philosophical, I want to be practical.
I'll give you facts.
My best friend, the one I spend most of my free time with , has joined a gym.
This is a big victory, I've never preached to her but I think my change in attitude has been for her an example.
Second fact - I've been talking with my brother in law about weight loss & co.
He's been overweight for a while, but, after a serious illness, has completely changed his attitude to food and committed to a healthier lifestyle.
He swims every day for hours and he's feeling 'as good as a baby' - in his words.
So I have an ally also in the family.
A different attitude 'transpires'
Isn't it great???

I'm reading so many of your blog posts and I get so much motivation, insight & inspiration.
All I can say is that you are all wonderful.
And it's all about change.
I used to think I would not change so much anymore in my life, but it wasn't true.
Two turns in the road, and I had to change almost everything about myself.
But I want to change for the better- I'm worth it.
I want to transform the way I look at myself - from hopeless to hopeful.
From loser to winner.
From low-potential to high -potential.
I know it's everyday battle and I know I can lose at times.
But I can tell you, I'm starting to tell myself 'You're worth it ' and I'm telling YOU as well!!!

"Remember all the good thing I've done for you"
These are the words which have resonated in my head these days.
So I'm trying to put a few facts together.
I'm sure you can all remember :
When you received consolation after a long period of pain & anguish....
When you lost your job and soon found a new one....
When you broke up with a boy/girlfriend and then found the right person for you...
When life seemed void & empty and suddenly something new happened...
When you felt sad & lonely and then met a friend...
How was it for you?
How did you feel????
How this affects your life TODAY???????
Let's remember all the wonderful things He's done for us!!!
Praise to the Lord!!!!!!!
