Accept what is; release what was; have faith in what will be.
Take chances! Be bold, be silly, be weird!

Make time for your wellness
or you will be forced to make time for your illness.

Live the way you want to be remembered.

I'm still here.
2020 is my year to release this fat!!
I am just so sick of myself and the same ol’ excuses every year, same ol fat me every year.
Full Stop. Deep Breath. Release.

My word of the year: Release.
Release fat.
Release bad habits.
Release fears.
Release clutter.
Release: to free from something that binds, fastens, or holds back, to let go.

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

I feel like a misplaced islander.
I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in a past life.

A little bit bohemian. (bō-hē′mē-ən) n.
A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior.

I’ve been on SP for a long time. I’ve lost and gained back a lot of weight over these years. Up, down, up, down, up.... This year I’m determined to lose the weight again, get fit, and get off this stupid roller coaster.

A few of my favorite quotes:
“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?” ~Danielle LaPorte

“Where’s your will to be weird?” ~Jim Morrison

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou

“I am a question to the world, not an answer to be heard or a moment that's held in your arms. And what do you think you'd ever say? I won't listen anyway. You don't know me. And I'll never be what you want me to be.”~ John Rzeznik ~ Lyrics to I'm Still Here ~ Treasure Planet

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ~Dr. Seuss

    It's Friday, and time to check out some of the best, little known, unpublished books. It is a write of passage every Friday to share a few giggles for the weekend. So, I am going to barge write in. Check these out!

    emoticon Deep In Debt - Owen A. Lott
    emoticon A Crack in the Sidewalk - I. B. Trippin
    emoticon Guide to Computer Memory - Meg A. Byte
    emoticon Gotta Run - C. U. Leiter

    What did one romance book say to the other book?
    I just want to make sure we're on the same page.

    My parents bought me a budget dictionary for school.
    I couldn't find the words to thank them.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
