I have been on Spark for awhile, but had the worst year of my life in 2011 and my body shows it. I know that statement sounds dramatic, but it's true. It has been a year of depression and loss. The only gain has been in the weight department. 30+ lbs of gain. I cannot allow 2012 to be a repeat of 2011. I want my life pound and one day at a time.

My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out." -- Ronald Reagan

To have something you never must do something you have never done.

Remember, opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you missed.

"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but i can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead." - Louisa May Alcott

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway"

What would it be like if you lived each day, each breath, as a work of art in progress? Imagine that you are a masterpiece unfolding, every second of every day, a work of art taking form with every breath." Thomas Crum.

You are fully capable of reaching whatever you decide to reach. Promise yourself something wonderful, and then do what it takes to fulfill that promis

If you keep starting and keep starting you are a winner all the way through to the end. Keep your motivation,focus,determination!!!!! Your goal will come faster then you think!!!!!!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Feb. 10, you may have to grow out of a profound insecurity in order to grow into the confident and able individual the stars have fashioned on this date. Once you do, however, you can enjoy a long and fruitful career -- and the kind of success in your personal relationships that is forbidden one who remains under the control of the kind of self-doubt from which you are likely to suffer when young. The world can be your oyster, but you have to be brave enough to give it a try and develop a taste for it, surely.

    Once you come into your own, you can make a name for yourself that will be long-remembered and much admired. What is most remarkable, however, is that you will ultimately use the leverage your success affords you to help others, teach others, and work tirelessly for others.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
