Shut Your Damn Mouth

apparently that's what you should do when you get the urge to tell people your goals. I read something today about this being the secret to accomplishing your goals and I thought it was interesting. I like the idea that when you keep your goals secret you get the selfish pleasure of knowing you did it and you didn't have to put on blast that you were going to do it. If that makes since. I find it interesting because…

That Last Post Was Not Meant to Sound Negative

Maybe it didn't sound that way to you but re-reading it, it sort of sounded that way to me. I meant it in a positive way.

Babe I’ll Walk the Seven Seas When I Believe There is a Reason too

  I finally finished reading one of the many books on my list! yay. haha This is a pretty big accomplishment because I have a pile of books (12 or 13) that I have read about half-way through. So actually finishing one was nice. And of course the first thing I do is go buy another book. I bought Southeast Asia on a shoestring, it is a lonely planet travel guide. I mainly bought it to help keep me motivated...…

I Propose That We Slow Dance

I have been in such a good mood these past two days. There really is no particular reason. I just feel happy and great-full... So today I attempted to do some power yoga for strength and flexibility. Mind you I have not done any yoga since I stopped swimming 2 years ago. So saying Im sore would be an understatement. I forgot how hard it was to do some of those balancing poses. esh. So thats a work in progress.…
