The Oxford Dictionary defines journey as an “act of going from one place to another.” Deciding a life-style change of eating healthier has not been easy. It all began with my mental journey to slowly defeat overeating; but my conscious continuously chirped - feed me, feed me. At times I’m so weak and temptation wins. Beginning right now, I am committed to the journey of change, so I am leaving the fear of change at the door. It’s our time to create a new thought process of becoming mindful of our food intake. Tomorrow I have a doctor’s appointment to go over my lab work and it is my time to discuss any concerns that I may have during my journey of

The struggle to find work requires a strong commitment to never give up, even though there are days you really want to shout from the top of your lungs…why me? There’s a dedicated
press forward drive within me that is hard to explain, but I know my employment
day is coming soon. I have exhausted my loan me cards from family and friends,
but I am not employed yet, so keep them coming, Please! I have invested
countless hours applying for jobs online; and never received a call back or even
an email stating we selected another candidate. I decided to make seventy-five
copies of my resume in search of being hired on the spot. I spent eight hours a
day going from door-to-door handing out my resume. The greeter at each door was
nice to a certain point, but who really made my day was a gentleman by the name
of Kurt. He was that kind-hearted communicator that set aside time to help a
stranger and encouraged me to jot down my eventful job search. The journey of change or reinventing yourself is hard due to the anxieties of life, so email me your personal betterment goals for we can become each other motivator of kind-hearted communicators.

Today I want to talk about friends—not acquaintances, but loyal and dependable friends that are there through the good times and bad times. My trustworthy and best friend forever (BFF) name is Jakoda. We’re from the same small country town. I would describe her as a pleasantly plump individual with a fantastic personality. Two weeks ago, I get a text from Jakoda telling me her left lung may have collapsed. Everybody knows I am the crybaby in the group. As I was chatting with her the tears were coming down my face and I was wondering how the hospital would let me in to visit her after hours. I told her to start from the beginning. She had a sharp pain on her left side and then came to the hospital and x-rays showed spots on her left lung. Then she was admitted. The
doctors wanted to make sure it wasn’t an aneurysm. After two days being in the hospital we found out it was not an aneurysm only an infection, so she needs to follow up with her primary doctor in two weeks. Appreciate your friends. We all know good friendships are not formed by accident. It really takes hard work and self-sacrifice. Trustworthy, loyal, and dependable friends are blind of each other’s imperfections, but without question will be there during your time of need. I whole heartily believe you should always focus on supporting each other through life’s sudden and unexpected changing moments and events.

Can true happiness be obtained with a small waistline? In a world where thinness rules, everywhere you turn, from the television to magazines there are always quick weight loss schemes. Daily living can be challenging. Along with constant mockery, the pressure is on for overweight people to lose weight and solve all of their problems through this weight loss so they can be “happy” just like the rest of the world. Overweight people are mocked in various ways. In the entertainment industry, if there is an overweight person used, their character is usually portrayed in a derogative manner: the fat one who eats everything in the refrigerator and so forth. The media tends to make overweight people the butt of cruel jokes. There is constant pressure for overweight people to lose weight. You are who you are. If you are a truly exciting and sexy person, these traits will shine through no matter what your size is. However, true happiness is not achieved from being skinny. There are many overweight people who are happy, and their happiness does not stem from their waist size. So Be Happy & Live With Intent!!!

Congratulations to my friends on their wedding this Saturday, August 6, 2011. I am happy that both of you have found someone to truly love and cherish. This is dedicated to the bride and groom. The
success of your marriage and your happiness depends upon your willingness to adjust. To make a marriage successful, a strong foundation of love and communication is needed to withstand all life’s unforeseen challenges. Remember, the lack of love in a marriage is just like the lack of air in a
body it cannot survive without it, so always love and forgive one another when disagreements occur. In a family or marriage circle communication is more than just talking. The Apostle Paul stated at 1 Corinthians 14:9, “In the same way also, unless you through the tongue utter speech easily understood, how will it be known what is being spoken? You will, in fact, be speaking into the air.” Communication is the lifeline in a marriage. With communication you can withstand any obstacles thrown your way. This basically means that as newlyweds have intense love for one another and be able to forgive each other with that same intense love when a mistake has occurred. A successful marriage is hard work so continue to work at it everyday. Always respect each other’s thoughts and feelings, while keeping the lines of communication open. Please always be open and honest within your marriage. I wish you both the very best.
