So if you're always feeling fat and fatigued, start today on the goal of feeling fit and fabulous. But just START doing something, just one thing.

Eating Choices and Healthy Decisions This Week

Have you caught yourself making healthier choices or decisions this week?

You seem to point out all the things you do wrong to yourself all the time.  How about flipping the script in your head and make a decision to start counting all the things you did right - or good - for yourself this week and keep building on that success.

Working on the End Goal

And may I add....how many tears you will have to cry too!  If you have a dream - to be healthier, to have better relationships, to get that right job....whatever it is - wake up everyday and work toward that dream.

Like Sand Through the Hourglass, So Are the Days of Our Lives

After a very wicked storm the other day a beautiful rainbow caught my attention while I was bustling around the kitchen.  A rainbow is one of those things that demands reverence, and for a split second I found myself respecting nature, pausing to enjoy it’s massive majesty, and taking the time to consume it with my eyes.  And then, as if to get the cobwebs out of my mind, I shook my head and snapped out of my awe to get back to the “must do’s” of the day.

My little rainbow experience got me thinking about the fragility of life and all those things that we don’t take the time to do.  Especially with others.

We’re so stinking busy that if the phone rings, or we hear a rap on the door, or voices coming down the hall, we cringe about the time it might take to interact. We spend our days trying to be effective and efficient but we miss opportunities to connect with others.  It is usually only after we hear sad or bad news about someone that we say “…gosh, I never knew he was that sick…..or they were having problems……or that happened to their child….or she was struggling that way”.  If we’re honest with ourselves, we push people away all the time, we just don‘t think of it in that way.

The question I pose to you today is, what connections or rainbows have you been missing? What have you not been taking the time (if only a second) to just stop and enjoy?

Food for Thought

Do you agree with this statement:  It may be alright to be content with what you have, never with what you are.

We should approach life as a learning experience. We can continuously learn and improve ourselves. If we stop leading dynamic lives, we will become bored and goal setting may take back burner to your routine. As you do the small things consistently, your foundation becomes stronger and it’s a lot easier to keep balance in the rest of your life.

Accomplishing Your Goals and Staying Motivated

Benjamin Franklin said  Energy and persistence conquer all things.

Consistency is an action that is often overlooked by society. You probably don’t hear people telling you to be consistent in order to accomplish your goals. This quote reminds us that persistence and energy can conquer anything. On days when you don’t feel like doing anything, think about staying consistent.

Consistency with energy is a powerful tool for completing any task, especially your goals…so use it whenever you get a chance.   (sparkpeople.com)
