You Cannot Take It with You

When my sister died, everything she owned got thrown out or donated. It made me look at all my "stuff" in a new way. So now, I don't buy anything unless I truly need it. I wear out my clothes before buying anything new, if even then.

Dealing with vacations

Maintain your weight instead of trying to lose. Eat brunch, a snack and dinner (instead of 3 meals + snacks). For brunch, have oatmeal or eggs. For a snack, have a yogurt and granola bar. For dinner, stick to chicken or fish and salads. Even if you can't exercise, at least you won't gain!

Motivation through others

One of the things that always motivates me is to watch or hear of someone else's success. I especially feel encouraged when the story is about someone who beats the odds and despite his or her unique obstacles goes on to experience incredible success. It makes me ask myself "What am I waiting for?"
