Negative thoughts are insidious

They are the plague to a peaceful existence

They are the 'Yangs' to the positive 'Yings'

There is a flip side to everything


Up/down, .




In the spirit of that

Be persistent!

Do not let negativity own you

Do not let it take root

Be proactive,

take charge …

Cancel it out with positivity

if you lack the strength or...

Cannot muster the courage

Then surround yourself with those that will lift you up

Until you can lift yourself

There is nothing wrong with asking for help

No one person is an island

& even an island needs the water, weeds and wild life to exist

Keep your head up, breathe


Keep on keeping on even when you feel otherwise

  15. Hey lady. I just popped back by to answer your question about why I don't have a key to Mama's house, I do.

    But Girrrrl, Mama was locked up on the INSIDE...deadbolts, chains, bulldogs, python snakes, automatic mace and everything else behind the door. Plus, Mama is packing heat. It pays to let her know you're out there.

    Have yourself a great day!

    Have a nice day!

  18. I have spent half a day on the line trying to explain some mistake was made a month easlier. Its the moment when I get on the scales and realise that after a full of years of trying to my weight I'm going on a diet and playing golf.
    When the golfing event bad on time but fraued emotions when I feel thinking about me! I never know to about indoor golf.? I will be back to wining my good golfing for very soon? I has been a wining a women's golfing from many years ago untell 14-12- 2011..
    Have a good time!

    1. The best way is to do portion control and try to implement more walking into your daily routine. Change of lifestyle is better than dieting because the diet is temporary and once you are off it then you regain easily and sometimes more than you lost.

      You are a champion golfer? Wow good for you.

  19. I was not wining all the time. some month has more 23-3-2011 till 14-12-2011..
