Losing weight is a journey of self discovery. The more you are willing to open yourself up to change and self-awareness, the more successful you will be.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Six Terrific Truths about Time emoticon emoticon emoticon

    First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that
    take up your time.

    Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent
    on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

    Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

    Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..
    Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

    Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We can never take back time once it is gone.

    Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world,
    so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours;
    hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

    “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines.
    She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful,
    for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved.
    She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people
    smile even if she was sad.
    No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.
    She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”

    I firmly believe in small gestures:
    Pay for someone's coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind
    even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball
    down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are—
    particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate it.
    I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, but the irony
    is that almost everytime you make them feel better, you feel better about yourself.
    For a moment, life suddenly feels lighter, a bit like Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”
