I am working to put myself first, not last. Not let family issues, work issues, life take over.
To be the best I can be, the best I know I am capable of.
I will forgive myself for not being perfect and remember I am worth the effort, to be healthy, happy, and to have fun!
I am strong, I am smart, I am making the effort & give it all I got!
ITS MY TIME!
To be healthy fit, and strong.
One step at a time, one day at a time.
Climb Mt. Washington
Look good in a dress
Exercise! I need to be consistent.
Incorporate veggies and grains.
Walking, elliptical, and starting ST.
Live in Massachusetts with DH.
Love books & the beach.
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
That which you manifest is before you.
We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.

~ IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER ~
~~Erma Bombeck~~~(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less
about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,
wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment
and realized that the wonderment growing inside me
was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said,
"Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...
look at it and really see it, live it .and never give it back. I would stop sweating the small stuff.
I wouldn't worry about who doesn't like me, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
I would cherish the relationships I have with those who love me.
I would think about what God HAS blessed me with, and what I am doing each day
to promote myself mentally, physically, emotionally.
After reading this, I realized how many more "I would" add to this list.
"I would" share this with my friends, because my life is pretty wonderful with them in it.

Hey you......yes you,
Stop being unhappy with yourself,
Stop wishing you looked like someone else
or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else,
Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you,
Stop hating your body, your face, your face, your quirks..
love them for without those things you wouldn't be you
and why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident
with who you are, smile..it'll draw people in.
If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
then just say "screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
I'm happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws..I love my imperfections..
they make me "me" and "me" is pretty amazing"
~~Love yourself today~~
