New Year Resolutions !

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile.  It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.

3. Buy a DVR and tape your late night shows and get more sleep.

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, ‘My   purpose is to __________ today.’

5. Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy. 

6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2008.

7. Make time to practice meditation, and prayer.

They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.

14. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, OR issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the NEGATIVE BLUES away.

18. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

20. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

23. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?’

26. Forgive everyone for everything.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. Remember God heals everything.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick.  Your friends will.  Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often. (Or email them to death!)

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am   thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly don’t want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.

40. Please have this read by everyone you care about.  I just did.

May your troubles be less,

May your blessings be more,

May nothing but happiness come through your door!

Happy New Year !

How do you know if it’s real love ? Every night you think of what either seperates you from that person or what holds you together !

48cI definitely want to say by this message that I will never, ever, take care of anyone’s problems again, talk to them about their troubles, give them advice or take care of them or their worries, try to open up their eyes, try to love them even more by being caring and understanding.
I am fed up that actually, which I was afraid of, it makes it even worse, it comes back in your face as if you’ve been hit.

So I AM GONE, I AM NOT HERE ANYMORE, I am going to be, what d’you call it? Oh yes, “BEING SELFISH”!!! 

I am going to enjoy even more my husband, my kids; they love me, we cherish each other more than anything else in this world and I am going to go wherever I want, I am going to do whatever I want, and I can clean up my own s***, as I have always done. (Even if they think I should do some more…)

I am angry and very disappointed, but not for long…

 For many years already I have understood what life means, what love means. What I am going to do in 2009 and all the years after that is having fun and enjoy !
As long as I live, there will be peace around me for the people that share my love and understanding and the serenity I am looking for!

I’ve learned my lesson again, “take care of your own business”, if that is what they are trying to tell me, well, I will!
Thanks for helping me out here! But don’t be surprised if I don’t listen anymore, I have enough to take care of in my own life, as I have been told…

I quote Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard :

« Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Prime Minister Howard angered some Australian Muslims by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote: “IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians”.
“This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom”.
“We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the language!”
“Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture”.
“We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us”.
“This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,
“If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted”. « 

NB – I remember French President Sarkozy saying once : « If you don’t love France, leave ! »
