Lifting Yourself Up

Sunday, June 07, 2009      0 comments

Sent Packing!

Paying Attention

Tuesday, May 12, 2009      1 comments

Here's the keeper for me today: "...we're waiting for something else to happen in the future, and we don't take advantage of the day that we hold in our pocket." I know the days slip mindlessly by so this has been a good reminder that I reall... Read more

Take a Stand

Saturday, May 02, 2009      1 comments

I believe I often take the easy way out so this will be a definite challenge for me. Here's the part that caught me... "Do you live bravely or do you often look for the easy way out? Next time you're faced with two choices, choose the bolder. ... Read more

Neglecting the Body

Thursday, April 30, 2009      3 comments

Here's the reminder I needed from today's Healthy Reflection: "For so long, we've been hearing so many bad things about different foods, it's almost as if food is our enemy, one that can kill us or ruin our lives. Truth is, food--good food--is ... Read more

Taking Responsibility for Success

Monday, April 20, 2009      0 comments

Confessions of a Sodaholic

Monday, April 13, 2009      4 comments

It is just sadly amazing how little things creep back in on us don't you think? Take my "little thing" for example. How many months ago was it when I gave up the soda habit? Four? Five? I still don't buy soda to have in the house but I can ... Read more

Are You Your Own Obstacle?

Wednesday, April 08, 2009      1 comments

Well, of course I am! I had to laugh when I saw the title of today's Healthy Reflection. The line that did make me stop laughing was "It's easier to find ways to justify your actions than to get over the hurdle." Hmmmmm That pretty well put ... Read more
