2020 Goals

To BE better and DO better!

Exercise 5 days a week and track my progress.

Other goals for 2020 to make ME a better person:

Purge and clean something everyday, reduce household items!

"Live Simply, Love Generously, Care Deeply,
Speak Kindly, Leave the rest to God"

To Change One's Life:

1. Start immediately.
2. Do it flamboyantly.
3. No exceptions.

~ William James

"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together." Vesta M. Kelly

Failure is falling off the wagon and never having the courage to get back on no matter how many times we fall off.
I am Not a failure! From Sparkbuddy BarbieT65

~~Feelings and Emotions happen -- acting on them is a choice.

~~Change your lifestyle -- change your weight (I am working towards this)!

~~Do not compare yourself to others, only be better than you were.

~~Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it."

~~People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily. JRSYGRL75

~~Defy Expectations! H2O4LIFE (she rocks!)

"Never argue with an idiot. They just drag you down to their level and beat you with years of experience." (Love this one!)

- Happy moments, praise God.
- Difficult moments, seek God.
- Quiet moments, worship God.
- Painful moments, trust God.
- Every moment, thank God.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
~Leo Buscaglia

Your reputation is what others say about you. Your character is what God KNOWS about you.

    emoticon Mine was the 12th, so as Libras we have to learn to not be "doormats" as we always want to be fair and not upset others, but truth is life isn't fair. Staying in balance is our key. Libra isn't a "fat" sign as Libra needs to stay centered. Yoga, Kettlebells, Team Sports and Dance/Tai Chi are all good for us to stay in shape. The Libra child was the peacekeeper in the family, so we need to learn to avoid critical people. I always remember the saying "Critical people MUST criticize, because that is what they do." We don't have to take it to heart. As Pam Young said of her critical former husband "I learned to think of it like white noise on a radio."
