Food for thought....

Saturday, March 31, 2012

If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.-Anon

I found this quote to be interesting for a couple of reasons, first of all, my personality is one that is always trying to figure out ways to help others, especially the students I work with... Do I sometimes help out when I should let them figure it out.. Hmmmm.. food for thought...
Secondly, do I sometimes look for a helping hand from others when I CAN, SHOULD, NEED, to do something on my own..... Hmmmmm.. more food for thought!
Have a blessed day!

    I try to do things for myself but since I don't drive anymore, I depend on my daughter for that (I do her laundry for her) and My son-in-law is my computer
expert. I learned from my Grandma that if you don't stay active you get so you can't do anything. I try to exercise all that I'm able!

    I figure out how I can do this alone, and how I can help my children use their resources. I tend to do alone, and that sometimes back fires. It's finding a balance. Good to see your blogs again. Blessings to you also. Tori

    I struggle with this also as a teacher. You've given me something to ponder on my walk today. Thanks!

Spring Fever and Zumba!!!

Friday, March 30, 2012

This beautiful weather has given me spring fever! My flower beds are all cleaned out! The grandchildren's raised sand and dirt box has been cleaned out as well! I'm looking forward to a beautiful week-end! Oh yeah, I'll be participating in a two hour zumbathon fundraiser tomorrow afternoon, ought to be fun and exhausting at the same time!

    I loved that book. I'll have to borrow it from the library and read with my daughter.

Negative People...

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

We all have those people in our lives who just seem to be happier when they're being negative...hopefully it's not you or I!!! I've decided that I am NO longer going to allow myself to bet caught up in other people's negatively; instead I'm going to give a smile and walk away.... I know I can do this... I can do anything I set my mind to!

  I have found that being among negative people may sometimes influence me negatively as well..So as you said I find it better to just walk away and live my life with a smile. Thanks for reminding and keep smiling :)

Down a bit...

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I forgot to post my weight loss yesterday; which isn't a bad thing as it serves as a reminder to me that IT IS NOT just about weight loss, but IS about living a healthier, happier, life! Now having said that, I am down to 184 from 185.8 two weeks ago!!! (3 pounds away from 100 pounds lost... I will get there...)

Have a great day!
