Amber Alert

Mommy Don't Drink

I have some unfortunate news, I lost a close friend today. We have been through a lot and we have had some good times and some bad times. I am sure we could have had many more good times, but my friend and I just aren’t good for each other. My friend's name is Mt. Dew. Yes, I am an ex now. I know Mt. Dew is bad for you with all the caffeine, sugar, and preservatives. Now it is getting expensive, but it tastes so darn good. The cold, the flavor, mmmmm, the first taste out of the can is so fantastic. The flavor goes with any meal, any snack, and its good all by itself. It gets me through the day, especially the tense, hectic, stressful days. Mt. Dew is enjoyable to have around but it is regrettable that he gives you things like high blood pressure, diabetes, tooth decay, and heart problems.

In the end it is probably good that Mt. Dew and I are no longer friends, but I am going to sorely miss him. Now I am an ex Mt. Dew drinker who wishes she was still a Mt. Dew drinker.

I am human and I have a rational side (sometimes) and my rational side will prevail (I hope). I know down the road I will be happy with this decision. I'll lose weight. I'll feel better physically and emotionally. I can stand proud and say, "I am an ex Mt. Dew drinker."

Thought of the Day - New Year's Day

You don't love someone because they are beautiful; you love them because their heart sings a song only yours can understand.

I know many of you like my Thought of the Day. I am glad to be able to share my thoughts with you. I am glad to provide the inspiration to challenge you to look inside of yourself to better yourself and to better your life. Now it is a new year and I want to know what my readers want. There is a poll above, so please vote so I know if I should continue my column in my blog.

A Time for Reflection

Each new year is the perfect time to pause and reflect -- to think about what we have done in the past year and think about what we want to do in the next year. What are you satisfied with and what changes would you like to make? Do you have new goals for the new year?

There are many things to think about, and reflection deserves your precious time, especially if you want to set goals for the new year. Without a plan, life just happens to you.

Would you like to spend more time with your family or with your friends? Would you like to eat healthier and exercise more? Do you want to learn more? Do you want to break a bad habit? Do you want to become more organized? Is there some place you've always wanted to go? Are there relationships you need to nurture or mend? Is there something you've always wanted to do but have put it off? Decide the changes you want to make and write them down. You are more likely to accomplish them if you do! Make the most of your life so it is fulfilling and full of the things you want and care about most.

They say your thoughts become your words -- your words become your actions -- and your actions become your destiny. Take time to make your life all YOU want it to be!

The fact is I regret my past, and I'm afraid of the future. But this is the present and I'm going to do the best I can to make it all worthwhile.

Thought of the Day - 12/29/09

I have bite marks on my tongue from all the things I should have said but didn't.

Thought of the Day - 12/28/09

Life isn't like a pencil, your mistakes can't be erased. Life is more like a pen, you can use whiteout to cover it up, but you'll be reminded of where you were mistaken.

Thought of the Day - 12/27/09

Your past is not who you are, it's who you were.
