I joined SP on March 31, 2013

I'm starting over.....again.

I am hard-wired to be a prodigal who wastes my health, wealth, time, and life on extravagant junk that destroys me. But I seek to change my ways, and, thereby, change my life, moment by moment, choice by choice, hour by hour, day by day.

I don't want to be a prodigal anymore!

Little choices + honesty + consistency + time = Success!

    My hope for you is that you get to enjoy your retirement years. emoticon
    I actually was up early enough to see the Stars still shining this morning over the ocean and sipped my coffee while it got daylight.
    I am so blessed! I hope you are too today!, emoticon

    Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet, love someone,
    dance in those muddy puddles, tell someone off, draw a picture with crayons
    like you’re still 6 years old and then give it to someone who is very important to you.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Take a nap, go on vacation, do a cartwheel, make your own recipe,
    dance like no one sees you, paint each nail a different color,
    take a bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Get on that table and dance, pick strawberries, take a jog,
    plant a garden, make an ugly shirt and wear it all day, learn a new language,
    write a song, date someone you wouldn’t usually go for, make a scrap book, go on a picnic, relax in the sun, make your own home video, kiss the un-kissed,
    hug the un-hugged, love the unloved, and live your life to the fullest.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    So at the end of the day, you’ll have no regrets, no sorrows, & no disappointments.
