Starting over...again!

I've been overweight my whole life. I've only lost weight successfully once, but only maintained it for a few years. I'm now back where I started. But I'm not giving up! So, I've just reset my goals and I'm ready to do this!

***---***THE PARADOX OF OUR TIMES***---***

Is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but we have less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense
More knowledge, but less judgement
More experts, but more problems
More medicines, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often
We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life.
We have added years to life, but not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We have conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul.
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals.
We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short character;
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare,
More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces;
Of fancier houses, but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you can choose,
Either to make a difference …. or just hit, delete.

For every minute
you are angry, you lose
60 seconds
of Happiness
Don't say
"There's still time"
or
"Maybe next time"
Because there's also
the concept of
"It's Too Late
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Never let the things you want
Make you forget
The things you have.

Past is experience
Present is experiment
Future is expectation

So better use your experience
in your experiment
of your expectation.

*~~~*~~~*~~~*~*~~~*~Life is To Short~*~~~*~*~~~*~~~*~~~*

*Life is to short:
"To spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don’t hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.”

Life is to short:
"Don’t waste time worrying about what people think of you Hold on to the ones that care, in the end they will be the only ones there"

Life is to short:
"Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can. Apologize when you should and let go of what you can.”
*~~~*~~~*~Is Life To Short for You?~*~~~*~~~*
