A good Chocolate excuse...

Men who eat chocolate may be less likely to have a stroke. A study of more than 37,000 Swedish men older than 45 found that those who reported eating the most chocolate - about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips per week - were 17% less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least. Chocolate contains antioxidants called flavonoids which is likely the source of the health benefit.

If you give someone 30 choices of fabric, no matter what they pick, they're going to be dissatisfied with their choice. If you give them 3 choices, they are going to feel like they've made the right decision. - Robert Downey Jr.

You get to choose...

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. - Dr. Wayne Dyer

You can't go back...

You can't go back to the old habits...because those choices will sabotage you. You can't go back to that old relationship. That old relationship not only held you back, but it got you off track, and dislocated you from yourself. You can't go back to the same old people...because the person they once knew doesn't live here anymore. You can't go back to the old places...because they don't fit into your future.

Look at yourself. Be honest with yourself. Don't look back because in doing so, you will be pulled back in. Keep your eyes looking forward. Work on yourself. Develop yourself. Pursue your dream. Build a new life by attracting new people, and creating a new reality! This is your time! You can't go back...because you've come too far to turn around now. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you! You deserve!!! ~ Les Brown

Taking the time...

So I said to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to look at it. I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers. -Georgia O'Keeffe
