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

    "When obedience ceases to be an irritant, and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power"-Ezra Taft Benson And I might add to "our quest",... out of love for God and ourselves.

    While I was walking around Walmart doing my grocery shopping, with my daughter helping me, i noticed something bugging me in my shoe. I thought perhaps it was the support hose I had mended just wadding up but the irritation got more pronounced and finally I took my shoe off in the middle of the isle and dumped whatever it was that was in my shoe. To both our surprises a tiny spring from a pen had somehow gotten into my shoe without my knowledge and was the irritation. My daughter, quick on the draw, announced joyfully, "Mother you have a spring in your step." We both laughed and laughed. May the good Lord help us all have a joyful spring in my step daily with a positive attitude. LOL What is the little irritation in your "shoe" today? We can all make our little irritations stepping stones to success if we try. Irritations as you know can be triggers to eating wrong or too much.
