Someone suggested today that it's all about me. Once I thought about it, I realized she is right. It is all about me. I am the one who choses what to eat and how much to eat. I am the one who choses how often to exercise and when to skip exercise. I am the one who decideds when to go to sleep at night and when to stay up late. I am the one who controls my emotions, not other people and not outside circumstances.

I can permit the outside world to control me and use that as an excuse to make bad chocies when I eat, or I can just say no. I can permit my emotions to define me or I can define my emotions. I can take charge of my life or just let life pass me by. I can be a victim or I can be a victor. The choice is all mine. Today I choose success. Today I choose life. Today I choose happiness!

God has given me a beautiful life, He has given me the ability to succeed. He has granted me favor and mercy and I choose today to accept His gifts and to succeed in everything I do! When I stumble I will use that as a stepping block to raise myself up. When I fall I will pull myself back up. When I feel like I can't go on I will look to Him for guidance and for support and I will reach my goals!

    Hi, Donna! I'm sorry I lost touch with you. I retired from a little over 30 years of teaching last May and have been working at my church's MDO twice a week this year. Maybe we can get together for coffee over the summer...time just flies by, doesn't it?! Hope you're doing okay.

    Hey Donna, Stopping by to say "Hello". I love your page and the "It's all about me" intro. It has to be all about you because you are the one "doing the doing" in your life. Sounds like you are living a blessed life and enjoying every minute of it!! emoticon emoticon m emoticon emoticon

    I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas season with friends and family!!Keep on, keeping on. Hugs, Deanie

    Everything you mentioned is your intro is actually a relief.."All about me" Sometimes we think the outside world has more control of us than we do of ourselves, but that's just a way to place the blame elsewhere. We are responsible for our actions and we can choose to rise or fall. Thank you so much and God Bless you.
