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.

How To Have a Better Day
1. Play with kids.
Even if they are not your own, just kid around kids while they are just being kids.
2. Give someone a compliment.
Not a fake one, but take the time to see something that someone else is doing well.
3. Sing in your car.
And sing as loud as you can. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to frown while you are singing?
4. Watch a movie.
You might like it, and maybe you'll laugh, and maybe you'll cry.
5. Bake your favorite kind of cookies.
Then eat some.
6. Count your blessings.
I mean it. Start a list of all the things you are thankful for.
Write until you can’t write anymore. Staple it to the wall.
7. Watch people.
Go find a crowded public area, sit down and watch. Allow yourself to wonder what he ate for breakfast, or what her name is, or where he bought that shirt.
8. Do something for someone you love.
Do the dishes for your wife, take your niece out for ice cream,
take your mom to Starbucks for a coffee.
It'll make you feel good.
10. Think of the most encouraging person you know and call them.
But don’t complain. Refrain from telling them how bad your day is
and focus on making their day better.
11. Write a letter.
A good old-fashioned paper and ink letter. Bonus: write it to someone who has impacted your life and thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their role/impact in your life.
12. Make new friends.
One of them may be in your life forever.
How will you have a better day?
