Hi! I am Barbara, a non-traditional nursing major. One more year to go. I want to be as healthy and fit as possible to enjoy my work and the rest of my life. Since I am changing, I am taking the opprotunity to reinvent myself in the process.

Favorite reminders:
Weight gain is the result of many little wrong choices. I'll-worry-about it-later pounds make our bodies heavy and we hardly know how it happened.
The road back to normal is full of many little right choices.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.
As your thinking changes, slowly a permanent change will occur.
Once we realize that the "road is the goal" and that we are always on the road... to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, then
life ceases to be a task."
Many of the most wonderful experiences we can have in the course of human existence require us to wait before achieving gratification. Patience provides us with access to what cannot be enjoyed without first proving our staying power.
Patience is for when we are more interested in bringing about a positive conclusion than courting a speedy one.
Slipped? Slow down and start wisely again.
Positive emotion is not a frill. It's the on/off switch for effective mental functioning.
We are all teachers, each doing just the right thing to help each other learn perfect patience, perfect wisdom, perfect compassion.
To be truly dependable, our first duty must be to ourselves... then we can dedicate ourselves wholely and be at our best.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - nameless, unreasoning...which paralyzes needed advance.
Breathe. A deep breath uncomplicates so much.

    It looks to me like you haven't been here in a long time. (Maybe I'm wrong.) Restarting January 1, 2015 would be a great day for you. Our health is what matters most. Hope to see you then. emoticon

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, you do things in your own often inimitable way, and you're not the kind to yield to another's will without a very good reason, for you feel that doing so sacrifices too much of your own autonomy -- whether or not this is actually the case. Indeed, your almost aggressive independence is a double-edged sword, a strength that can also be a weakness, for it can result in conflict where there needn't be any, and drive others away from you at times when you may need social interaction more than anything else.

    Highly intelligent and always eager to learn something new, you're not quick to admit when you are wrong -- though you can listen to reason and come around if necessary. You have a few unusual interests that are likely to be life-long, and that may bring you profit as well as pleasure.

    Today’s Horoscope: Your ability to assess a situation quickly and accurately will serve you well. Others are likely to come to you for answers.

    Hope your day is wonderful!
