“Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.” Zig Ziglar

    I like this idea of putting your goals/affirmations out there, since that's the way to reach those goals!
    I know you will, because you already have done so...

    I love reading your blogs! You have such determination and it radiates off you, helping others. We all may not have the same goals, wants, and desires, but you certainly help us to look deep with ourselves to find our own "personal best". Life is meant to be lived passionately, not passively. You're an inspiration and the true meaning of "Motivator"!

    These are awesome goals! And I love how you have divided them into short and mid and long-term. I also love what you said about living life with a passion for wellness--I want to be at that place! I have to keep reminding myself that more than just losing weight, I'm doing this to become a better version of me, and that means being healthy! Thanks for the reminder!

    Jen - As I read your long term goals I was saddened by #3
    BECAUSE I remember well when I had believed that....
    then I forgot.....
    Now I remember...
    NEVER FORGET....it's to hard to return to remember....
    Much easier to REMEMBER and DO every day.

    Thanks for the reminder for today!!!
