I love it when I start something new and I have mega motivation! I love that! I just feel unstoppable!
Until I stop.
And it’s gone.
The motivation dried up and all I am left with is half-finished projects…
I can’t do sugar. In any form. Even raisins mess me up! They mess with my hormones…and it’s not pretty!
Ask around…a woman with messed up hormones…not so good!
Mood swings, PMS, hot flashes, sugar binges, cravings, weight gain…who needs it!
But…cake…ice cream…cookies…CHOCOLATE! I can’t give that up! So I don’t…
Do you ever wake up in the morning and just feel so grateful for everything?
I do…it’s my favourite kind of morning! Those days when you pull up the blinds and the cherry trees are exploding with blossoms and tulips are everywhere and the birds are singing their little hearts out…it just seems like everything is going to be all right 🙂
And it is…going to be all right. It always does in the end…and if it isn’t all right…it isn’t the end! It’s all in the way you look at it.
Success doesn’t always look like what we are told it would look like. Society tells us that it is the car we drive, the size on the tag in our jeans, the partner you’re with…and it’s a trap.
Success is so much more than that. It is when your grown children call you to tell you about their day…just because.
Success is walking into the mall and smiling at someone who looks miserable…and seeing their face light up and smile back at you.
Success is making a baby giggle.
Success is watching your garden bloom…and picking a perfect tomato and eating it when it is still hot from the sun.
You know how we are always supposed to make sure we are drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day?
How many of us do that?
How many of us think we are doing that?
How many of us actually do?
Well I thought I did…sort of… I would always have water when I got up in the morning…and here and there through the day…but I drank lots of tea…so that counts…right?
Apparently not! This is how four ounces of water changed everything 🙂
