Some words of inspiration....from one single mother to another.

When I look inside and see that I am nothing that's wisdom. When I look outside and see I am everything that is love. Between both of those two; that is my life. If you need to say who you are, you truly aren't.

Your past is important, but it is not nearly as important to your present as is the way you see your future. If you keep hope in the future there is power in the present. Today's fringe benefits are tomorrows expectations.

Understand; Regardless of your past, your future is a clean slate. You already possess every characteristic necessary for success. Remember, happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think.

The surest way to knock a chip off a shoulder is a pat on the back. Whatever happens throughout your life, do not lose hold of the two main ropes of life ~ hope and faith. Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on whatever comes your way.

If things in your life are not going your way. Understand them. Don't go with them, walk away from them. Remember a kite rises against the wind, not with it. Happiness is not something you find, but rather something you create.

Recognizing a problem doesn't bring a solution, but until we recognize that problem, there can be no solution. Whether you think you can or think you can't ~ your right. You can be or do anything you wish in this world. It's all up to YOU. Only you have the power to destroy your hopes, dreams and desires. I never stop believing and I never will!

From one single mother to another...very well spoken Lori and thanks for stopping by!

The answer to your question is yes it works. It's not about the abs per say, but about good nutrition and exercise. The title is very deceiving!

I especially loved the part where you said "Remeber a kite rises against the wind, not with it."

Very moving post and so true.

I had to check out your site, I was a single mom for ten years and I wish I would've had a support system or other bloggers to share with. It was the hardest time in my life. I think your blog is great!

Thank you for your inspiring words. I'm been going through some extremely difficult/challenging times in life and at times feel I won't make it. Thank you...
