Random Thoughts At 130 AM!!!!

So I'm laying in bed tossing, turning, coughing, and sneezing unable to go to sleep. I've tried watching tv, surfing the net, then I turned to reading.

Which led me to this new posting. It seems like everyone around me and even myself are having relationship problems?? Everyone from family members, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, friend/ friend, or even employer/ employee!!!

Just having power struggles, love issues, independence issues, finacial, support, self- esteem, just all kinds of issues!!!

While reading I came by 3 qoutes that really stood out to me. Idk if they all go with each other, but it def sums up the feelings in my heart & mind right now.

" He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier." Tao Te Ching

" Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, loving someone deeply gives you courage." Lao Tzu

" If you haven't cried, your eyes can't be beautiful." Sophia Loren

Soooooooo, what did you get from these??? How do they make you feel?? What thought or memory popped in your head? Heart? I'd love to hear from ya'll!!!

Girl, are you reading Fabulosity?? lol I know those quotes are in that book! I have the love quote on my page ;)

All of them have signifcant meaning to me.

Tao's quote about mastering yourself is something I need to remember each time I struggle with my weight loss. I've just realized that my whole life I've been been able to succeed at everything expect my weight. Its easier to control school work, work, etc...Its much easier to focus on everything else BUT yourself. We need to be in tune with ourselves if we really want complete success and happiness.

I'm sorry you're having relationship problems. I hope things work out soon.
