D-I-E-T

Monday, March 25, 2013


I thought this was pretty funny. And really can relate to it. I think this is going to be my new motto. "Did I eat that?" And say it before everything I eat.

    Now I have to change from, "I wish I had not eaten that" to "will I eat that?" If I stop to ask, I may not eat it! emoticon

    Thanks for the laugh; BUT that really is an excellent motto. I think that would be a great sign to put up on my refrigerator as a gentle reminder BEFORE I open that door. Always think twice before you put something in your mouth!!
PS your work on your Spark page is beautiful and I love your cute little dog. He looks like the Easter bunny! emoticon

Own yourself first

Friday, March 22, 2013



Many times, especially when we are young, we are looking for someone to love and to be loved by that special someone. But you really need to learn how to love yourself first before looking for something else. Only by loving yourself can you truly love others. You can control yourself but not others. Many times we look for that perfect "someone" but yet noone seems to live up to being "perfect"..There is only One who was perfect.

Stress

Thursday, March 21, 2013



Stress can be a killer. And not only that but it can really make you sick and bring on things you normally would not have. We need to learn to control our stress by letting things go.

When hubby and I married, we combined his 2 sons and my 1...I had been a "perfect" housekeeper...and liked everything in its place and super clean. I really took it to extremes. When taking on 2 more boys (age 6 and 9 at the time) and a husband that was more into family than keeping house...well let me tell you I was in alot of stress. I was working and trying to do it all and be a mother to 3 little boys. Well I came to the end of my rope one day and my boss who was a wonderful lady and mentor sat me down and said "let it go"...she said I could either have a happy family or a neat home...it hit me and made me realize that there is more to life than just cleaning house and working...and at that point family became first on my timeline. It was so freeing and the stress over keeping the house neat just disappeared. So we need to stop and think about what is more important in our lives and put that first and forget the rest.

    I agree but mess makes me stress! I want to let it go but I remember how junky our old house got when I didn't keep it up and how upsetting it was to me. Fortunately ours is grown so it really isn't too bad.

    Yup, one of the key things in reducing stress is deciding which things to let go of...I can't do it all as well as I'd like to and trying to is a killer. Another thing I find important to remember is that I need to reassess this periodically (or frequently when I feel stressed) to constantly make adjustments to keep everything in balance and the stress level low.

Great message and reminder.
