Time after Time

I post inspirational videos on here from time to time.  Hopefully, when you watch them it inspires you in some way.  I love motivational videos and quotes because they seem to put life into perspective.  Compared to some of the individuals in the videos I post,  I have it made!  To be honest, we all have it made compared to the majority of the individuals in these videos (whether fact or fiction).

I am a FIRM FIRM believer that life is what you make of it.  If life hands you lemons, make lemonade right?  Or open a huge lemonade stand and be the best lemonade salesman on the planet.  If you are not happy in the situation you're in.... Do something about it.  Do whatever it takes to make your situation better.  Be Happy.  Life is too short to be unhappy.  Let me forewarn you.... if you start to make a change be prepared for the haters to come out of the wood works.  Be prepared for negative thoughts and insecurities to immediately pop into your head....  There will be resistance all over the place, in all shapes and sizes.  However, you've got to remember that what is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.  You might have to go against the grain to get the job done.    Here is one of the best inspirational videos of all time!!!  Well, in my opinion....  I LOVE IT!  Find what you love and do whatever it takes to be the best at it.

Rainy Monday!

First off... The Beast Mode Award goes to my 4pm class today.  Noah's flood came a' pouring down and you guys decided to run in it!!!  Big PROPS!

I'm sitting here watching Extreme Weight loss Maker Over edition.  GREAT. SHOW.  Yeah I'm aware its got the tear jerker factor etc... but I am really interested in how the show gives you an inside look at what type of life style you have to lead to get to 400lbs.  One contestant a few weeks back explained weight gain very very plainly, "I'm a food addict.  My drug is around me every day, all day, and its legal.  Everyone wants to buy it for you and you have to have it every day to live."  WOW.  I've never really thought of food that way, but food is a "hell of a drug" (charlie murphy!).  Here is an article THAT IS A MUST READ!  It is rather lengthy but I'm telling ya... read it.  Please. READ

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold On";

if you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neuter foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

-Rudyard Kipling
