Let's make this the best September ever.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

I've been a Sparker for nine years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 42, 32, 29, 27, and 26. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (5), Chanel Ava (5), Lily Dona (5) and Chloe' Renee (3).

My ninth year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 67 and in my head I'm still 30.
=======================================
This DONE GIRL will PERSEVERE.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my page with a little pep talk. I can lose the 200 pounds - I've done it twice before - but it's like walking through a dense forest and then seeing the mountain you still have to climb. So, I'll gear up and muster through.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your broken leg! I can't imagine the pain and discouragement you must feel... emoticon

    Thanks for comments on my blogs. I retired 2 years ago and find that I haven't had time to get bored. In fact, I am enjoying setting my own schedule instead of working around my job of 25 years at a hospital working mostly awful hours. If I decide to sleep in or go shopping it makes me feel more in control of my present and future.

    My biggest challenge is having to adjust to decreased vision due to macular degeneration. I gave up driving about a year ago and so now i live in an apartment near bus routes and some stores are walking distance (1/2 to 1 mile).

    P.S. I friended you, hope you don't mind. emoticon

    I haven't found that to be true...if the flu virus of the season has mutated enough after I have gotten the shot, I still am resistant to it. I either don't get the mutated virus OR my experience of it is very mild.
