My biggest regret is not following my passion when I was 18. I wanted to be a doctor ever since I was a little girl and could read. I didn't follow my passion as I thought I wasn't smart enough. All my life I have helped people in whatever job I have had with health issues. So do what you love and yes it can be scary to make the changes but do it anyway. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/2/l1214516267.jpg"> Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:45:07 EST Cold & Wet Sock Remedy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5816186 I don't know if you have heard about this.

Thinking I should do Avon more and get into that as I could be home more.
