Preparing for Baby

I'll be having my first baby in September. I want to make sure I'm getting all the nutrients and calories I need to grow this baby! I also want to keep my body in shape for being a new mommy :)

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

"To swear off mistakes is very easy. All you have to do is swear off having ideas.
- Leo Burnett

SparkPeople Translation
A well-lived life is not for the timid. The world was never meant to be approached with extra caution and fear of making mistakes. Kids know that you have to jump in feet first and be willing to take some lumps on the head if you're going to have any fun at all. When did we stop trying new things? Why did we stop taking risks? In large part, we're afraid of screwing up. We've settled into our comfort zones and don't want to look like a fool, to ourselves or others. What's the price we pay for our pursuit of perfection? No growth, no sense of discovery, few real experiences. The sacrifice isn't worth it. Are there points in your life that you wish you could have back because you didn't pursue an idea or a new interest? Those chances are gone forever -- but you'll have more in the future to take full advantage of. It's been said that most people don't learn much that's new past their 20's. That's an awful long time to stay stagnant. The only mistake you should be afraid to make is not trying.

"Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions"
Harold S. Geneen

Anyone can talk about being a leader…not everyone can actually do it. Think about a project that you are working on at work or at home. Are you talking about being a leader or are you actually being one? In our society we sometimes equate leaders as those who are in charge and giving directions. But, if you really think about it…aren’t the real leaders the ones that show you how to get the job done and do it with you or take the time to lead you in the right direction. Try to think of ways that you can be a better leader this week!

"Be as you wish to seem"

SparkPeople Translation
Portray yourself to the world however you like. But it should be consistent with your own values and beliefs. What is truly important to you? What do you really want to get out of your life? The way you live your life should be reflective of that. We all hold high ideal for ourselves, which is a good thing. Are you working to fill these standards, or do you let good opportunities to prove yourself slip by? Think you are a great leader or friend? Being these things isn’t just a title, but is something proven by action as well. You can be anything you want.
