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. "

    My thoughts for the day. Proverbs 15:15, " All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Since I wanted to increase my merry heart I wrote a poem.

    Principle of Rejoicing

    R emember His infinite atoning sacrifice.
    E xercise agency to believe His living word.
    J oin in His sacrifices by loving service.
    O bey from the heart what you've "heard".
    I ncrease daily, thanksgiving and praise.
    C hoosing virtue and holiness continually,
    E nter into the joy of the Lord all your days.

    Sweetie, have a super, stupendous Saturday. I will, since I've said sayonara to senseless snacking on mental "slop" and instead serving myself satisfying, scrumptious, sweet, soul filling "salences" to support my fattening soul and skinnier silhouette. So there!

    P.S. "Salences"= my coined word for combination salad+sentences.

    Friday's fun and not so fun facts: I finally, once and for all, figured it out and face it! Food "fixes" do not fix faulty funky feelings of faultfinding. It took me forever to face that. Go figure?

    Thursday's thought: Treat thyself today with a thirst for soul-fattening, thank-worthy thoughts of "Thin for HIM", and eat that which is good, which will translate into health and wellness.
