~ I'm Dani, I'm 34 and I've been married for 13 years to my sweet-heart. Together we have 6 children.
My kiddos are girl (12), boy (10), boy (8), boy (6), girl (3) and boy (1)!! (they keep me busy but motivated!).

I'm a WAHM. (I am a photographer and run my own business).

I couldn't think of a better title then "becoming me." I have always felt like a thinner healthier person was beneath all these layers. Slowly I am piling away the layers to find the 'real me' beneath.

I've lost 57 pounds since I started my journey. I haven't always been perfect but I have always continued to take steps to improve my health. I've falling off the wagon a few times but have managed to climb back on.

~ What I've learned a long the way.

I've learned that staying active on SP is very important and to hold myself accountable.
I've learned that nobody can do this for me I have to do this for myself. I'm the reason I'm this way so it's up to me to fix it.
I've learned that weight loss is 80% how we handle what happens to us. And the choices we make when something unexpected happens.
I've learned that if you want to be successful you have to track EVERYTHING!
I've learned that having the right kind of positive attitude and perspective is extremely important.
I've learned that you have to want it more then anything else.
I've learned that you need to remember why you began your journey in the first place.

Abraham Lincoln once said." We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. Do we see the glass half full or half empty.

There are ten benefits of positive thinking.

1. A positive mind attracts postive events ....imagine how many great things you will experience in your life.

2. Postiive thinking promotes great and harmonious relationships because you notice the positive qualities in a person instead of dwelling on their defaults.

3. You make a better first impression because people are attracted to
a kind and friendly person.

4. Postiive thinkers experience birant health and are less prone to
depression and are less prone to illness.

5. Positive thinking is the key to success because it allows success to
become doable and easier.

6. Positive people overcome stress more easily.

7. Positive thinkers see problems as opportunities for growth.

8. Positive thinkers notice the abundance of good things in their lives because they develop an attitude of gratitude.

9. Positive thinking motivates us to achieve our goals.

10. Beauty shines from within a positive thinker because friendly and
happy people are extremely attractive and the inner beauty is able to be seen by others.

Make positive thinking you daily habit!

This day belongs to me. I can do wonderful things with it, creative things, including the creation of order in my surroundings and in my mind. Nobody else owns my particular segment of tim, so it really depends only on me how I will fill every moment to my satisfaction.

Enjoy your day dear emoticon .

Take time to celebrate. Celebrate your successes, your growth, your accomplishments. Celebrate YOU and who you are. Your beauty is in you, just as you are each moment. Celebrate that.

When you have a success, when you accomplish something, enjoy it. Pause, reflect, rejoice.
Celebration is a high form of praise. All along you have been a gift to yourself and to the Universe.

Celebrate your relationships! Celebrate the lessons from the past and the love and warmth that is there today. Enjoy the beauty of others and their connection to you.

Celebrate all that is in your life including personal struggles because through these you experience growth. Celebrate all that is good. CELEBRATE YOU

emoticon Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.

H appiness if found within not in people and things.

A cceptance of the present regardless of what fears/inner demons you may
be facing

P ersistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may
experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

P atience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials
and tribulations life often presents to us unexpectedly.

I nside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a s
smile on your face

N ever give up yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart
and a positive mind set

E ndless love and happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

S pirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural
state of being

S trive in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights
experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live
as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow.

“Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.”
—Rollo May

Some days we wake up to overwhelming feelings that things look bleak. We see loss and danger around us, and we fear for the future. That is when our character is most tested. That is when we are called to continue to just put one foot in front of the other. There is no need to solve all our problems right away or to change the world immediately. Courage isn’t necessarily a feeling of confidence that we can triumph over all odds. It’s knowing that we can move ahead one step at a time, and it’s taking positive action in the face of our fears.
Each day we can do small things that are constructive. By these small things, we can place ourselves on the positive side of life’s equation. We can put our weight where we want to go. That is courage.
Today, in the face of my despair, I will focus my efforts on the side of my hopes and values

I just wanted to share my morning devotions with you today
