    The past does not influence me; I influence it. Willem De Kooning

    Historic is a word that many people will use to describe the events that will transpire this week as the President Elect is poised to take his oath as the leader in the most powerful country in the land. As I pause to reflect on his accomplishments, I am reminded of ours. We have taken the leap, enhanced ourselves and are growing into the people we want to be. Kudos to you for seizing the opportunity to make sure that your legacy is one that you can be proud of! Have an amazing week and don’t forget to take the time to tell someone how much you appreciate and love them!

    We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future. George Bernard Shaw

    History is written by the winners. Alex Haley

    A pocket is no place for a smile! – Blues Traveler

    How many times have you been walking along and “caught” someone in a smile, almost like they were enjoying an inside joke with themselves? Many of us live tired, uptight and so stressed out, that we simply forget to breathe and enjoy the goodness all around us. When I leave the house each morning I do my best to set a chain reaction of smiles in motion. This week, I challenge you to do the same! Get those endorphins flowing, smile when you feel a frown and remember - Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it.

    A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author Unknown

    Live on purpose and have a marvelous week!

    Everyone has a success mechanism and a failure mechanism. The failure mechanism goes off by itself. The success mechanism only goes off with a goal. Every time we write down and talk about a goal we push the button to start the success mechanism. Charles 'Tremendous' Jones

    What have you put in place to attain success? Are your goals attainable? Are they measurable? What will happen if you fall off the wagon? Everything is pie in the sky when we begin, but as time goes on the roadblocks will appear, frustration will attempt to set in, someone will be eating your favorite food less than a foot away from you and your willpower will tested. Addressed from the beginning your fool proof plan can prevent any of these things from happening. This is a new year, refine and build on what worked for you and toss out those old stagnant ideas that got you nowhere. As this new year begins, keep striving, keep pushing, keep moving and above all keep encouraging the people around you! Have a great week my lovelies!

    The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs. Vance Havner

    Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    As a new year is upon us, most of us have begun to think about what we would like to do differently for 2009. I’m no exception, but while we look forward, let us not forget our past. We’ve had success in 2008 and should build on what we’ve learned and experienced as a foundation for our continued accomplishments in 2009… I want to be the first one to say I’m “So, Fine in 09” and I’m going to achieve my goals with the all of the tools I’ve placed in my toolbox, including you – not that you’re a tool emoticon , but you have been integral in everything that I’ve been able to accomplish thus far. So, from me to you - thank you and let’s continue to press forward towards our prize!

    “We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.” ~ Anthony Robbins

    “For, he that expects nothing shall not be disappointed, but he that expects much - if he lives and uses that in hand day by day - shall be full to running over.” -Edgar Cayce

    We’ve got much to look forward to in the upcoming year! I’m cheering for you, know that you will achieve greatness, and wish you and yours continued success and prosperity!

    Happy Holidays,

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on in full force, but I have missed every one of you. I hope that you are doing well in your quest to drop those pounds forever! Remember to reach out to your family and friends during this special time of year and let them know how much you care.

    “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo F. Buscaglia

    Take care and enjoy the season.
