I would like to live according to my goals. Each day taking the best action to get me where I want to be.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

a return to love - Marianne Williamson


"Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
� Nathaniel Hawthorne

My Spark Name is based on an old fashioned name for butter fly. What would happen if I just let the weight loss land on me? No more struggle, no more worry. I just calmly trust the process. That thought brings peace.

�Promise me you'll always remember:
You're braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think. "
Christopher Robin to Pooh
A. A. Milne
