This is it. Your time. Your whole life is out there, a waiting world with unlimited possibilities. It may not know about you yet, but it will. You'll make it happen. Your sense of purpose has gotten you this far, and it will get you further still.

You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.

    Dropping by to wish you a happy emoticon day. My hope for you is that the emoticon aren't overwhelming. Remember that no emoticon of candy, no matter how beautiful, will taste as good once eaten. Stay emoticon . Be your best emoticon during this season of so many emoticon and emoticon !

    If portion control is an issue, ask for emoticon or emoticon . A little dark emoticon is OK if we can manage a serving and leave the rest for another day. Know what you can do and speak up! THIS is all about you! Remember ... emoticon and emoticon are right around the corner!

    Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! emoticon

    "We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called "Opportunity" and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce

    emoticon On this first day of the New Year, I wish you emoticon blank pages of opportunity to write your own new history. May you have emoticon wealth and emoticon health, emoticon peace and emoticon good friends, emoticon clean water and emoticon whole foods. May you find truth in your emoticon journey. May your emoticon reflection soon be exactly what you've been dreaming to see.

    emoticon Happy New Year, my friend, emoticon
