Life is like a camera.

Saturday, January 19, 2013



If you mess up, just start again. No biggie. Just move forward.

Let go of negativity. Don't let it become a habit in your life.



Let go of the things you can't change & focus instead on the things you can.



If you give up, you have failed! If you never give up, you will eventually succeed. Slow is still progress.



Every moment of your life is a miracle & a mystery.



So savor every moment!!!



Don't forget to change the world, one smile at a time.



Blessings to you!!! emoticon emoticon

How do you see yourself?

Friday, January 18, 2013



Sometimes we're so critical of ourselves. We can even be downright brutal. Let me ask you this: If your best friend told you on a daily basis that you were ugly, fat, grumpy, or [fill in the blank with a negative comment], would that person still be your best friend? Probably not!! I'd be telling her/him to take a hike!!

If you wouldn't let your best friend talk to you like that. Don't you talk to yourself like that!!

Stay positive. Practice positive self-talk. Every time you do some self-bashing, immediately apologize & replace the negative with something positive. If it helps, sit down & come up with a list of things that you like about yourself or that other people like about you & start with those.



Today, no [fill in your name] bashing!! God doesn't make junk! You are a precious person - you are beautiful!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Thank you!

A friend of mine told me recently that I beat myself up more and harder than any of my critics. Her suggestion: picture holding a baseball bat in your hand, ready to strike. Then drop the bat and leave it behind.

So far, it's working!

    Great points, but how could someone be a friend if they bullied you and were not good to you? And they were your best friend? I know you are just making a point. Some of us have people like this in our lives, but friends like this who needs enemies.

ABCs of me!! :-)

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Thank you BigPawsUp for this fun idea. Before I start, you know I'm the Poster Queen, so I'm gonna kick this off by saying:



A - Available or Married: Married 18+ years to a wonderful man. He makes me smile every day!

B - Book:. The Hunger Games (Iím waiting until closer to the time the 2nd movie comes out before I read the 2nd book).

C - Cake or Pie? Cake!!!! Yellow or white with Buttercream frosting. Mmmmmm.

D - Drink of Choice: Water Ė Iím such a water hound!!

E - Essential Item: My Bible

F - Favorite Color: Mint green

G - Game to Play or Watch: Play - Scrabble!!! There are nearly 200 games logged on my Kindle in the last 2 years. Watch Ė Dallas Cowboys Ė I donít care about the other teams. Tee hee! My hubby laughs at me because I yell at the TV.

H - Hometown: Stafford, Virginia

I - Indulgence: Skinny Cow Truffle Ice Cream Bars. Yum-o!!

J - Job: Legal Assistant for the Federal Government

K - Kids and Names: - N/A Ė no kids

L - Life is incomplete without: God

M - Music Group or Singer: I like a lot of different music (except I donít care much for country or bluegrass -- too twangy). I like 80s music. I also listen to a lot of Contemporary Christian music because I lead the music at my church. I would be very hard-pressed to choose favorites, but Iíll name a few from each genre. 80s music: Yes, Mr. Mister, Flock of Seagulls, INXS, Def Leppard. Contemporary Christian: MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, Jason Gray, Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin

N - Number of Siblings: Four -- 3 sisters & 1 brother.

O - Oranges or Apples? Apples!!! Honeycrisp or Gala

P - Phobias/ Fears - Spiders!! Eeeeek!!!

Q - Favorite Quote: Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. ~ Regina Brett ~

R - Reason to smile: The sun came up this morning & my hubbyís sweet face.

S - Season: Spring!! I was born in the spring Ė maybe thatís why.

T - Tattoos: Well, I have 5 little ďdotĒ tattoos from my radiation treatments. I guess those count. I told the lady at the radiation center that I could now work on my biker chick persona since I was getting tattoos. She said I didnít look like a biker chick, but she put the India Ink on there & then poked me with the needle. I didnít even flinch. She said, ďHmm. Maybe you have a little biker chick in you after all.Ē emoticon

U - Unknown fact about me? I took piano lessons for 6 years & have not played in nearly 30 years. I didn't think I was that good, so I canít play at all now. I took voice lessons for 6 months.

V - Vegetable you love: Corn on the cob Ė I could eat it all day, every day & never get tired of it.

W - Worst habit: I can grow my nails pretty long, but if one breaks, I have to cut the rest. I like for them to be the same length. Iím a little OCD that way.

X - X-rays? Iíve had a couple, but between mammograms & radiation therapy, I should look like The Incredible Hulk!!

Y - Your favorite food: Pizza

Z - Zodiac? Aries (western); Monkey (Chinese)

One final thought:



Go play today!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Seize the day!!!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013



Don't let the day slip by without doing something to improve your health. You only have one life & you only have one body. Everyone gets only 24 hours in a day. If healthy eating & exercise are not a priority in your life, you won't do them. If you're serious about healthy eating & exercise, you WILL find a way to fit them into your day. It's that simple. How serious are you? emoticon

If you're not happy with your choices, change them.



Make sure you give yourself a break once in awhile. Don't beat yourself up after you mess up. Trust me, I've messed up plenty lately, but I'm finally back on track & I'm noticing a difference already in how I feel, after just a few days.



Fight for your dreams!! No one else can do that for you.



Never, ever, ever give up!! It doesn't matter if your progress is slow. Slow is still movement.



And finally, we all need friends along the the way. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful SparkFriends on this journey. emoticon



Have a super Sparkly day!!!

Blessings to you!!! emoticon emoticon

    I loved the "no matter how slow you go, don't stop"

It reminds me of some people at my gym, they walk very slowly around the track- but I give them props, because they are certainly running laps around all the people sitting at home, on their couch, eating potato chips!
