Healthy Reflections, January 4, 2011:Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain, American writer

Healthy Reflections, August 20, 2010: The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.- Albert Ellis

A Dozen Things to Do Today
1) Remember that some of the world's nicest joys are its most special people, and that you are definitely one of them.
2) Take care of that special person.
3) Enjoy the ride.
4) When the world is too busy, slow it down.
5) Climb one rung higher on the ladder to your stars.
6) Imagine what the view will look like when you get where you're going.
7) Stay in touch with your inner voice; it always speaks the truth.
8) When you've been working too hard, give your batteries time to recharge.
9) Remember that you are someone who is thought of - with friendship and with love.
10) Keep a smile on that wonderful face of yours.
11) Have a great day.
12) And be happy!
