Food for Thought : Louisiana State Fair
1 . Avoid impulse buys by planning what you are going to eat . Take a walk up and down the fairway a few times before making a purchase . Make a point to look at all the the menus and see what each vendor has to offer . This will help you make a better selections and may save you some money .
2 . Watch what you drink . Liquid calories can add up quickly if you are not paying close attention . Avoid alcohol , soda and other beverages that are full of sugar are also full of calories . Opt for water , choose a small size to share .
3 . If you look for healthier options , you are likely to find them . Grilled meats and vegetables are common place on most midways these days . Don't go to the fair super hungry , as you may be more likely to over eat . Remember that sharing can be a good thing .
Words of Wisdom :
Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being inculcated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes - or just by staring into space.
Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.
I'll never stop dreaming that one day we can be a real family, together, all of us laughing and talking, loving and understanding, not looking at the past but only to the future.
In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was 'Help me.' Sometimes a prayer was 'Thank you.' What I've discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.
Many times, the decisions we make affect and hurt your closest friends and family the most. I have a lot of regrets in that regard. But God has forgiven me, which I am very thankful for. It has enabled me to forgive myself and move forward one day at a time.
