Every day counts!!!

Thursday, September 09, 2010

This was today's Healthy Reflection and it really hit home. Just thought I'd post it here.

"The future comes one day at a time" by Dean Acheson

Finding victory in the small stuff

Do your dreams seem far away? Does the distance between you and the finish line deflate your motivation? Often we forget that goals and dreams are not achieved overnight, but rather in a series of small steps. Progress towards your goals should also be counted as victorious! Stop looking at the end result to bring you the greatest joy. Instead, celebrate the ways in which your life is gravitating towards that desired result. Nothing is guaranteed in life, so make the most of each day and persevere. Remember that the small things in life build up to the bigger ones.

    Thanks for sharing Mary. I too get discouraged when I think of the big picture so I have to break it down and celebrate the small victories.....but not with food emoticon

    This is so good for me to remember. Often I think I sabotage myself because I get discouraged. In reality, I need to make smaller goals for myself along the way and celebrate those. I know that I feel better even when I loose just 5 pounds, so I am going for those 5 pounds before I tackle the 30 pounds!
