Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
Love yourself today, not only once you reach your goal weight.
Eat healthy and exercise because you LOVE your body,
not because you hate it.
*hugs to you*


It is important to me to focus on my health
without losing perspective or my sense of self. )O(

"It is not beauty that endears, it's love that makes us see beauty." ~Tolstoy

"We are always getting ready to live but never living."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
~Cherokee proverb

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Starting today, make new memories."
~Julie Isphording

"Every mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied."
~ Pearl S. Buck

"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life."
~Golda Meir (By posting this I don't mean diet yourself thin to be happy, rather I am talking about who you are as a person.)


Love one another enough to see that everyone is beautiful. Love yourself enough to see that YOU are beautiful!

I have always seen great beauty in my grandmothers, so I say, fear not the skin! :)

If loving others with all my heart is all I do in this life, I will feel it has been well spent.


"A still more glorious dawn awaits."

    So glad you liked the painting by Kay Nielsen.
    It is one of my favorite paintings! His works are beautiful.

    A good place to start is "East of Moon, West of the Sun". He illustrated this collection of Nordic Children stories, the stories must be lost in translation but the illustrations are a beautiful example of his work.

    Enjoy your discovery of a most talented artist!

    Thanks for the Spark Goodie. YES!! Swimming with the dolphins was an awesome experience. If you ever get the opportunity to do so, I would do it. My husband insisted on me doing the most expensive trip, it was his birthday!! I was the only one on this particular excursion and I was able to spend 45 minutes all by myself. It was a trip of my lifetime!!! Do it no matter how many people are there, it is wonderful. We were in Mexico when I was able to do ti.
