I found an anonymous quote today that resonated with me:
" Don't just go through life, GROW through life. Yesterday is gone and you can't get it back so leave the wish I.. woulda, coulda, shoulda in the past with it. Each new day you are given a new opportunity to start over and become a better you. The power lies within you."
I decided to develop a descriptive meaning behind HAPPY that I could reflect on regularly as motivation and inspiration. Maybe it will help you too...
H Health, heavenly, hope, harmony, honesty
A Alive, appreciate, accountable, active, achieve
P Perseverance, positive, patience
P Peace, passion, peak, precious
Y Years, young, youthful, yeah
So I am on a quest to be happy. My mind will be open to all the advice and ideas I am reading in other blogs and the books I read. Most of the blogs out there have days where the person behind the keyboard expresses truly profound words or admissions. Other days are filled with the rants of happiness or frustration - something we all have to do.
One of the blogs today (Cammy - tippytoediet) wrote about the big deal scale, this was great. It reminds me of a book I read (and will reread) called "Don't sweat the small stuff... and it's all small stuff" by Richard Carlson. We know this isn;t true but it's a reminder to me to keep issues in perspective. We all know we can get frustrated, angry and down right pissed about a lot of small things if we let ourselves follow that path. So like I said any advice, ideas, etc are neat to be reminded of.
As for the journey, all is going fine. My motivation is still strong and my dedication to the changes in my eating behavior, exercise, etc is all OK. Finished updating all my stats, my exercise is complete, dishes done, washing in process and gotta get ready for bed.
Good night and be happy...
