New Goal: Be as healthy as I can be

I have spent the last five years being sedentary and eating unhealthy foods due to illness and depression. But I'm ready to work on improving my physical condition and my mental outlook by exercising and eating better.

I have pulmonary fibrosis and the chronic autoimmune illness called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and am on oxygen 24x7. I don't know if it is the illness or the powerful drugs they gave me to treat the illness that have caused me such distress, but I'm off the ...

I have pulmonary fibrosis and the chronic autoimmune illness called Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and am on oxygen 24x7. I don't know if it is the illness or the powerful drugs they gave me to treat the illness that have caused me such distress, but I'm off the meds and am finally feeling like I can try to rebuild my life again.

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

"As you look back on the year gone by, think of missed opportunities not with regret, but as a reminder of what you learned that you can use to seize the opportunities ahead."

Best Wishes for 2015.

The best kinds of people are warm and kind,
They are always there and they never mind.
The best kinds of people smile and embrace,
They support you with strength and grace.

The best kinds of people love and cherish,
They lift you up when you're near to perish.
The best kinds of people share your joy,
To laugh with you, to joke and enjoy.

The best kinds of people stand up tall,
No matter how hard they fall.
The best kinds of people are honest and true
The best kind of person, my dear, is you.


My good friend, Pattie, shared this poem with me & I had to pass it along!!! :) :) :)
Thanks so much for being one of the 'BEST' kind of people, My Friend!!!
I truly value & cherish your support & your friendship!!!
Hugs,

Jes
