If you don’t like something, change it. 
 If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
If you really want to achieve something that is achievable, you’ll find a way. 
 If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

I no longer live in that mind-set.
 I no longer allow myself to dwell on  those thoughts.
 I’m no longer controlled by my ego’s presence.
 I forgive myself for poor choices of the past by living in honesty today.
 I now choose to live in truth.

Twain Advice


Always choose to be true to yourself, even at the risk of incurring ridicule from others, rather than being fake and incurring the pain and confusion of trying to live a lie.
  It’s OK to do what you want to do. 
 It’s OK to be happy with yourself and the way you live your life. 
 It’s OK to say "no" to others and "yes" to your own desires.  
There’s no better freedom than the freedom to be exactly who you are. 
 Give yourself that gift, and choose to surround yourself with those who appreciate your decision.

Mistakes and Decisions

Letting Go

One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. 
 Whether it’s feelings of guilt, anger, disappointment, loss or betrayal.  Change is never easy.  We fight to hold and we fight to let go.  But we must eventually let GO.  There’s no point in stressing over what you can’t change.   Let it be, move on, and grow from the experience.
It’s often our own thinking that hurts us.  There’s no reason to imprison yourself.   Sometimes you have to accept the fact that things will never go back to how they used to be, and that this ending is really a new beginning.

An Act of Kindness


“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us but our beliefs as to what those events mean.” 

Tony Robbins


Chronic stress triggers an ancient response that results in the release of cortisol into your bloodstream. Cortisol raises your blood sugar, which increases fat storage in your belly. So stress ends up increasing the size of your belly.
 Chronic stress contributes to fat accumulation through increases in the production of cortisol and, by association, insulin. Not only does insulin help you store fat, but it increases your appetite. So you eat more and feel less satisfied, a vicious cycle. An increased appetite ups the chance that you’ll engage in “hedonistic” eating in the form of nutritionally bankrupt sweets. This results in further fat storage, additional inflammation, higher insulin demand and more hunger.
 So, the more stressed you are, the more you tend to eat.

I Have Learned



Speak your truth with honesty and kindness. 
 There is no greater sadness than holding on to the honest words you never had the courage to speak. 
 Hiding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy will not make you "nice", it just makes you a liar and a coward.
 Living a life of honesty and kindness creates peace of mind, dignity and integrity.
