I have lots of good reasons to get fit and focus on my health: my kids, my spirit, my general enjoyment of life.

What I don't have is a good excuse for giving up, or "treating myself" to things that don't get me to my goals.

Everyday is a good day to start out doing what's good for me, and for keeping it up throughout the day. Everyday is a good day to remind myself that one slip isn't a good enough reason to fall off the wagon.

My goal this year is to not give up. Enjoy all of the journey to good health, don't just focus on how I will feel at the end, but on how I feel right now, right this second. Because taking care of myself, my mental health as well as my physical health, has no end until the VERY end.

    I have changed my Spark People page in memory of your daughters and to support you

    Let´s work for peace in the mind, in life and the world

    I have seen people filled with sick depression. They had not the abillity to see any light in the world. Good bless your innocent daughters, and your exhusband and you, I feel with you.
    When I had seen your news I called my brother. Also he feels sory for you even though he has never seen you. Suicide always gives guilt he said. One always asks again and again - could it have been different? This time it is also murder.!!
    I cannot find the right words.
    My brother also expressed his fear for the future of his daughter who is 21 and has quit 5 educations and often is homeless and without money. He asked me to call her which I did. I got her adress - for the time beeing - Adn am going to visit her for the first time as she moves the whole time. Maybe. She does often qiut from promisses. This was about other people. - I hope the very best for your future. Always remember your 2 cute cheerleaders who are wathcing you form heaven and hoping the best for you too... emoticon

    emoticon Amy! Just wanted to check up on you and wish you well. emoticon

    I'm finally getting better--hey, I don't think I had to blow my nose all day! But I think I'll stay home one more day, since I think I should be able to stay awake for 8 hours at a stretch before I return to work. emoticon

    I'm happy to pass on any word from you if you aren't up to addressing groups yet. Sending you strength, comfort and healing now and always.

    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon
