Maps are like dreams: both describe desire, where you want to go, but never the reality of the destination.

~ Kathy Acker

Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.�

~ Message from the Hopi Elders

There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or you're OUT. There's no such thing as life in-between.

~ Pat Riley, basketball coach

I'm getting married!!! I'm so excited! My boyfriend proposed on Sunday night and I can't wait to share the rest of our lives together. But now for the fun part. I get to work on fitting into a wedding dress!!! So now is go time!!!

I've been with Sparkpeople for over 3 years now and I've lost and gained more than I care to admit. It's not alot compared to what others have lost in a shorter amount of time, but I'm proud of myself. I've never given up. I've slid quite a few times, but never gave up. I've always gotten back on the wagon and that's what Spark has taught me. That this process is always full of learning, slipping, and forgiving. And I think the last is the big one. I've learned to forgive myself for my slips and mistakes. It's not the end of the world or the end of my hard work, but just a bump in the road on my way to a lifestyle change.


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    The little Pisces girl is born to a mother who is a worrier and the little Pisces child picks up all the tension that is in the family and she believes she is to blame. Often the family uses her as a "scapegoat" for its problems saying in effect "If it wasn't for her we'd have life on Easy Street", but she isn't the real problem at all. Pisces escapes to her dream world and finds safety in pets or food. Yes, she can have a weight issue, but she can just as well be a dancer, runner or lead an exercise class. She can be a wonderful artist or a teacher of small children as she knows how to communicate with them.
    She gets along best with Scorpio, Cancer, Taurus, Capricorn or Virgo. She can be a great beauty like Elizabeth Taylor. When asked what was different about her from Marilyn Monroe, she answered "No one ran my life but ME." That is what a highly developed Pisces woman needs to learn to say.
    Pisces health issues are often with her feet. She can have boils, anemia, skin conditions, allergic reactions to drugs, lymphatic system, problems with the mucous membranes or her liver. Practicing Yoga can be a great help to her.

    In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
    You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
    Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
    Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
    If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
    Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.
