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.

    Ok, today I officially kicked off the 'walking on campus because no students are here' part of the summer :) Sorry I didn't let you know - it was a spur of the moment thing. But, I am planning on doing it most days, so let me know if you want to join! During summers, my lunch time is totally flexible and most of the time, I can come and go as I please.

    Hope you are doing well!
