Hello ~ welcome to a work in progress ...

One day at a time ~ I train my mind ~ I am more powerful today
I am better in every way ~ I can see my success ~ I accept my greatness ~ I am on fire ~ I have a burning desire ~ I have unshakeable faith ~ What I want is on it's way ~ I challenge myself ~ To discipline my attention ~ I am willing to succeed
Today all I need ~ Is to keep the faith ~ I have the courage and the confidence to pursue my dreams ~ I let go of fear ~ It lets go of me

Favorite Mantras:
1. There's always room for improvement
2. The view at the top is worth the climb
3. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
4. Persistence pays off
5. Don't get stuck in a rut ~ change can be good
6. If you really want something, you'll find time for it
7. Go with what the day brings
8. Look for the path, not the obstacles
9. Don't compare yourself with others, there will always be someone better than you.
10. Run your own race

Four ways to boost your confidence:
1) sign up, already
2) go the distance
3) believe in you
4) follow a routine.
~Runners World (March 2011)

I choose
to know
the truth
About myself
No matter
how beautiful
it is.

~~ 10 Positive Assumptions ~~

1) I will make and keep my commitments.

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up trying and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own good luck.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

10) I will accept that all things are possible.

-Robert Anthony, in his book Betting on Yourself.

My Intentions:
I intend to be happy and be open to what life will bring to me.

I intend to make mistakes, learn from them and move on.

I intend to be a positive thinker who sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.

I intend to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of every day!

I intend to be successful which begins with spreading my W.I.N.G.S.
believe in my Worth
trusting my Insight
Nurturing myself
having a Goal
and devising a personal Strategy

Quotes and ideas I enjoy ~
"In the moments I get it right, every step I take seems to be matched by a universal mystery, which obligingly, incredibly, creates what I can't." ~ Martha Beck

�It begins with your own awakening, your own desire for a life that�s not just lived on the surface but is rich and deep and high and wide. For sure, that�s how I want to live. So I�m going to keep learning until I take my last breath.�
� Oprah

"Only as high as we reach can we grow, only as far as we seek can we go, only as deep as we look can we see, only as much as we dream can we be. We CAN Turn Our Goals Into Achievements!" ~ CORKYTHEMOM

"Who I am really keeps surprising me." ~ Poet Nikki Giovanni

"Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning." ~ Gloria Steinem

"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday & celebrate just living!"

"Strength does not come from how much weight you can lift or how many miles you can run. Strength comes from knowing that you set a goal and rose to the challenge. Strength comes from within."

"A person is not old until regrets take the place of dreams."

"A child can always teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires." - Paulo Coelho

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

"Put blinders on to those things that conspire to hold you back, especially the ones in your own head." ~ Meryl Streep

"The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance, but live right in it, under its roof."
~ Barbara Kingsolver

"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer & richer experience." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

"Transformation happens when you dare to be awakened to greater heights; when you stay open no matter what. Letting each experience, especially the tough ones, strengthen you and add depth & wisdom." ~ Oprah

"Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it." ~Sai Baba

"You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth." ~ Evan Esar

"Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them around you." ~ Jon Bon Jovi

For my husband of 25 years in 2012:
"He's not perfect. You aren't either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn't going to quote poetry, he's not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don't hurt him, don't change him, and don't expect more than he can give. Don't analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he's not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don't exist, but there's always one guy that is perfect for you." ~ Bob Marley

    "So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist.
    For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win."
    -Og Mandino

    “You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”

    “The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
    The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
    -Arnold Bennett
    I am turning over a new leaf, thanks to the support of my Sparkfriends! I appreciate your comment on my blog, "Coming Out Of Hiding." Have a healthy week!
