Words straight from a therapist. I swear. It was said in context of my life in general (changing careers, becoming an empty nester and having kid move back in, how I approach relationships). I'm applying it to this part of my life as a motivator to be healthy. I have talked the talk for years. Some years I actually get on the right path. Others (like so far this year) not so much. Taking baby steps to make the change and fly!

I love SparkPeople and my SparkFriends for all their support when I am present and when I'm not. Thank you.

If God only gives us enough to fill our plate, why do I feel like I have a platter?

'Whatever you give a woman, she's going to
multiply. If you give her a house, she'll give you a
home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She
multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So... if you
give her crap, you will receive more $#!% than any one human
being can handle.'

When she was bad she was even better!

    “This New Year”
    by Aleena

    emoticon emoticon

    Even during the worst of times
    When I feel the years go slipping by
    Life seems rife with possibilities
    When the New Year arrives.

    Buoyed by hope at the New Year coming
    I feel renewed and want to start living.
    This year I'll travel and see the sights,
    I'll be bold, I'll be courageous.

    I'll reach out and go beyond.
    I might even try being flirtatious!
    I'll be a new fish in a brand new pond.
    This new year I'll be brave and I'll be strong.

    Even though time does fly,
    I won't let this year be wasted.
    I'll look forward to new adventures
    And be open to opportunities I am graced with.

    I'll learn and laugh and have good times.
    I won't dwell on years gone by.
    I'll start each new morning a brand new way.
    I'll pretend it is New Year's Day!

    Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! I love that sweet granddaughter so much and hate to see her body taken over by this evil disease.
