There are no detours around obstacles

There isn't a meaningful goal that can be achieved, without facing obstacles and hurdles. It's an inevitable part of life's road to success. The more you come to grips with this, the faster you'll get where you want to go!

Instead of seeing difficulties as the end or your dreams, see them as part of the journey. View obstacles as challenges, which, once overcome, will bring you closer to your destination, Refuse to be stopped - keep focusing on where you want to go.

When the going gets tough, remind yourself that snags build wisdom, perseverance and strength, with this outlook your frustrations will transform to motivations and success will come your way more quickly.

Taken from Meditation for Women

I have struggled with my weight all my life. I'm making a commitment to finally lose the wieght for me, for my son, for my life! I want to know what it is like to feel normal, to fit in the world. To go on a shopping spree! ;)

    Hi, working on myself is never ending. I am care giving 24/7 10 months now. I have gained and not feeling good. So I am changing how I think about food. At least trying. Hard to change but I know I would feel a lot better. I set in on a vegan class and was amazed that everyone with health problems were doing so much better and feeling so much younger. the two sitting next to me had been on insulin for over 27 years and now is off and controlling their diabetes with there diet (vegan) and exercise. They are following a book called How Not To Die. I have the book but what I really need is vegan recipes, tried and true. I had a banana, unsweetened cocoa sprinkle on it with pecans for breakfast. We are having salad with mixed greens, tomato's, cucumber, celery, avocado, nuts, and the juice of one lime, Himalayan salt and organic pepper. yummy. Also cook asparagus. Have a wonderful Week and hoping all is going well. V emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
