    well I've just come back from the isle of wight, I've been staying at my great aunts house, she lives on her own after her husband died in a motobike accident, anyway my aunt has coped and has even lost excess weight shes been keeping herself busy and ocupied, anyway one of the evenings I was there, I was feeling a bit sorry for myself, I'm unemployed and my mother died a few years ago so I was worrying about things, anyway we were all watching tv and my aunt could tell I was feeling a bit down and I hadnt said anything to her then she said to me you should live for today, and that has stuck in my mind, I thought how true that is and I thought about minimins, some of you including me worry too much about the future and hitting targets when really we should just live for today.

    That's a really lovely message..... Carpe Diem as they say! Seize the day.

    It is so important to stop and smell the coffee..... I always say.... "here today, gone tomorrow".

    Love, laugh, live and forgive

    :) thanks for the replys, since I wrote that message, I have been to the gym and enjoyed it, in the past, I have been to the gym before but found it more of a chore and not enjoyed it because I wasnt thinking positive, I also walked without taking the bus, Ive also decided to take up running, but I could only manage to do 10 minutes running and had to keep stopping and I was weezing a bit, maybe I have managed this because of my aunts advice, I have also decided not to weigh myself and I have not been thinking about food too much thefore not snacking in the evening, I am finding it less daunting doing a bit of excersise everyday, so far, also my aunt has a daughter that does marathons despite her leg swelling up a bit, she had a horse riding accident a few years ago, and nearly lost her leg, our family has been through alot, I know :confused:
