I’m Sexy and I Know It!!!!

I'm sexy and I know it

When I see someone heavier than their normal weight, I would never describe them as “Fat!”  The word “Fat” in my opinion is harsh, mean and brutal.  There are other nicer words we can say to identify individual on a heavy side. 

We can say “chubby, chunky, big bones, heavy, or li’l buddha!”  There are better words to use rather than calling someone “F,”  do you agree?

Anyway below is a list of quotes from the famous Chubby gals and guys of Hollywood.  They are not only beautiful, they are also intelligent, talented, and have great sense of humor.  

If I had been around when Rubens was painting, I would have been revered as a fabulous model. Kate Moss? Well, she would have been the paintbrush!”

There’s a lot more to life than how fat or thin you are.”

“I am only one, but I am one.

I can not do everything, but I can do something.

And I will not let what I can not do interfere with what I can do.”

My Daily Reflections – Day 4

Imagine, if only for a moment, how much more peace you could experience in your daily existence if you would only allow yourself to see all experiences, both positive and negative, regardless of lessons learned, as gifts.

Imagine that instead of constantly analyzing and judging your experiences, you smile and are thankful for having them. My friend, listen carefully, for the beginning of knowledge lies in this simple shift in perception.

Imagine a life where, instead of asking why or why me you simply trust and say “thank you.” How much more peace and joy would this simple shift in perception bring to your life and to those around you? My dear friend, heaven is indeed now available on Earth.

Life is a journey – enjoy the ride!

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast; you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” -Eddie Cantor (1892-1964)

My Daily Reflections –

You may have chosen to judge the past, and blame yourself and many others for where you are today. That is fine. Do that if you choose to. But at least for sanity’s sake, ask yourself what this behavior has and is truly offering you? When has this behavior take you? At the very least, ask yourself if you are at peace with how you feel about this way of thinking.

The Business of Staying Young

Don’t Worry Be Happy!


I’ve something to say to you older folks, and you young folks listen too-
For what I’m about to say, will someday apply to you.

I know that some of you older folks are happily retired,
And have no ties to bind you, and work is no longer required.

So you’re sitting around in idleness, each day becomes a bore, you’re
beginning to start thinking, there’s nothing worth living for.

You’d like to be in some business, but think it’s too late to begin,
Well, I’ll tell you about a business, that all of you can be in.

Be in the business of staying young, make staying young a career,
Don’t live in the past; plan a future: look forward to each added year.
Don’t sit around and sigh, and let the world pass you by,
Get with it, and stay with it, all you have to do is to try.

Be willing to forget yourself, for at least once in a while,
Place yourself second, and cause someone else to smile.
Kindness pays a thousand fold, this fact is more than true,
Try doing a favor here and there, and it will work for you.

Be willing to admit mistakes, humility is always grand,
The humble people are the ones that need a helping hand.
Be willing to work for what is right however rough the way,
For in the end the righteous always have the final say.

This life can be wonderful, tender and thrilling,
You can always find happiness, that is if you’re willing.
There’s a place for you in this world, work that needs to be done,
So make up your mind you’re not too old to try to help someone.

I’ve been in the business of staying young since I hit the forty mark,
And it’s a wonderful business, in which all of us can embark.
It gives you that happy feeling of starting your life anew,
But like any other business, it requires time and attention too!

So be in the business of staying young, and the heights of joy you will reach,
Make staying young your new career, and practice what you preach.
Age can be a frightening thing, if you let yourself fear it…
You can’t help being up in years, but need not be down in spirit.
Take pride in your appearance, always look up to par,
It’s a way of making others forget just how old you are.

I know I’m not indestructible, time is taking its toll,
But I have a goal to reach, and I know I’m not too old.
So get busy and be useful each day of your life on this earth
with your talents and your efforts, find a way to prove your worth.
And be grateful that you’re living in a world of youth today,
And you, too, can be youthful, if you think and live that way.

Always be serene and gentle: if in this life things don’t go your way,
Turn your left cheek, and be happy, to the unkind words that people say.
We’re living in a world that needs us, though it’s filled with envy, sin and strife.
Let’s help make it a better place, so all can plainly see,
That each hour we spend here, is part of our eternity.
So let us live from day to day, while here upon this earth,
To do someone a golden deed, and our duty let us not shirk.

From The Eyes Of A Child

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;
I’d rather one would walk with me than merely show the way;
For the eye’s a better pupil, and more willing than the ear.
Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear.
And the best of all the creatures are the ones who live their creeds,
For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.

I soon can learn to do it, if you let me see it done;
I can watch your hand in action, but your tongue too fast may run.
And the lectures you deliver may be very wise and true,
But I’d rather learn my lesson by observing what you do.
For I may misunderstand you, and the high advice you give,
But there’s no misunderstanding how you act, and how you live.
