Love

Whenever I get frustrated, I go hug my daughter. It's just her and I and I make all my decisions based on what is best for BOTH of us - not one or the other. Just like losing weight. It's good for my health and better to be able to play with her. (she's 5)

Love and respect yourself!

When you love and respect yourself, it is much easier to do kind things for you. If you treat yourself the same way you would treat a close friend, you will find that your success is much closer than you think. It is when you beat yourself up that you set up for failure.

How was your day dear?

I value the precious time I can spend with my 29 year old son so when I am preparing meals I ask him to join me in the kitchen. He can tell me what is happening in his life while I make our meal.

Letting Go of your "PERFECT" Woman fallacy

I almost derailed myself until I turned and told my "PERFECT WOMAN" to take a hike and don't ever come back into my life again!

A Clean Slate

Remember that every meal and everyday is a clean slate. If you slip and make a bad choice don't throw it all out the window, start anew with the very next meal. Everyday is a fresh start!

Abundant thinking

We live in a "dog eat dog" world. People operate from a spirit of lack, thinking that if they have something they better hold onto it. However, the law of abundance is counter-intuitive to this thinking. To get more you must make room by giving more.

HERE TO HELP

When I am in the grocery store if I know something that will help another I will tell them as the lady who was buying fresh fruit and vegetables. I let her know about the green bags and how they do work. If you put bananas in a green bag, a brown bag do not close put in cool place away from sun.

Don't take it if it's not yours

Stay positive by not letting what other people say to you get the upper hand. Evaluate the comment. If it belongs to you embrace it and work on it. If it doesn't, let it float back out in the air and go where it belongs. We have enough "stuff" without taking what doesn't belong to us.

Find something you love

We can't all love our jobs every day. So find something to do when you're not at work that you LOVE. That when you do it, even when you're having a bad day, you come out of it with a smile on your face.

Count your blessings

As I reach a certain age I realize that I should count my blessings NOT my years.
