Dear Edna

Friday, May 03, 2013

I have always considered my self optimistic, but when I listen to my self talk, I realize I am only talking the talk, not walking the talk. Now is the time to change, forget about the past, dear and move forward, there is no way to change the past but you can and you will change your self talk about it. All the mistakes and shoulda, coulda, wouldas are over. Plan for today and the future. Live in the now. This will help to change your nightmares also, the past is OVER.

I will practice positive self talk and quit beating myself up for things that I can't control or do over. You are a beautiful person, who is kind, considerate and empathetic. Your mission is to continue to help others, but put yourself first. If you do not have the energy and motivation, there is no way you can help yourself, let alone others.

Be kind to your self and continue your highly motivate journey and continue to have fun on the way. Look at this time as a beautiful journey and you will come out way ahead of where you are now. This can be done and you will do your maintenance with dignity and grace.

I love you Edna,

Thank you for starting the journey and smell the roses along the way.



emoticon This is how you will look! For my 70th birth day my nephew gave me this picture, he photo shopped my head onto Elizabeth Taylor and for my 75th birthday (or long before) I will thank him for the motivation to start my positive journey. Hey I can look like this, it is possible.
