Quote from Sparks

Lifting yourself up and continuingforward

Does it ever feel like trouble follows you around and won't cut you any slack? Sometimes it feels like you can't buy a break and everything you try just makes things worse. Who could blame you for feeling sorry for yourself or not forgive a little self-destructive behavior? Bad idea. The new, healthy way to spend down times is to lift yourself up and operate at a higher level. Remember that what happens to you is not who you are. It's history. It's past. Your true self takes that history and decides how to make the best possible future out of it. You have the power to keep your attitude and values from driving into the ditch along with the events in your life. From defeat, you can still emerge victorious.

My thought
This had me thinking about my pass and I don't want my pass to repeat at all. Mainly my eating habbits and been lazy. I was to depressed to even think of going back to that way every. That's why I have to get off my butt and keep moving. So I decided on my future and that is a new and better me. Even if I don't lose as fast as I would like I have to love myself NOW and not wait until then. I had so much hope in myself weeks ago and that hope just hit a bumpy road and I am trying to jump over that bump and keep moving forward. When I get stressed out that's when I want to give up on all I work so hard to get to.

Do you see possibilities or problems?

It's been said that some of the smartest people around would make lousy entrepreneurs. How can that be? The fact is, some people are so smart they can easily see all of the problems, roadblocks, and snafus that they'll need to overcome to succeed. They can think of all kinds of reasons why their idea won't work. This knowledge can overwhelm any thoughts of possibilities or dreams. When you think of your goals, do you focus on the positives of making it happen, or the negatives of potential barriers? To reach your goals, you gotta really want them. More importantly, you gotta really believe that you can do it. Think more about why you CAN make it happen instead of why you can't. No more excuses.

My thought
This one really hit me in the head. I so really want it so bad I can see myself reaching my goal and loving myself a lot better then I am now. I do have some negative thoughts on the way and I am trying to turn those into postives it's some times hard to do that. But, I am working on that as I type. I want to start back writing 10 postive things about myself everyday replacing all the negative talk I have in the back of my head.

Quote from sparks

Are you a good friend to yourself?

If you met yourself, would you want to stick around and talk? Are you the kind of person others can be proud of? Hopefully you are, because that's who will be with you for your entire life. Your values and beliefs create a pretty good picture of what you want to see in the mirror. To be proud of yourself, do everything you can to make real life look like that vision. Find people that have the qualities you want and learn from them. Becoming a person you like gives you the confidence that you're someone worth being friends with. There's also a flip side to the friendship coin—you also need to cut yourself as much slack as you do your friends. You have friends because you see the good in them, not the flaws. You like them the way they are, warts and all. You enjoy their company and root for them to be happy and do their best. Look at yourself the same way. To be a good friend to yourself, accept your blemishes, while still pushing yourself to reach your full potential. Don't harp on your weaknesses. Take another look in the mirror and be kinder this time.

My thought
I surely need to do this badly. I look at myself I don't know maybe I can make a good friend to myself it's just that at times I keep coming back to my flaws but, when i look at my friends I don't think about they flaws. I only think about my flaws when I see myself and weight is what comes to mind. I also noticed when people can tell mainly my friends can tell when I am upset or stressed out because they our conversation isn't the same. I noticed when I am more happier men are the ones that is always in my face wanting to talk to me. I guess that's when I feel more good about myself. But, when you keep running into those no good men then another whole side of you come out in order to keep them away. So I do get that picture is mainly what you see is what you get. If I am happy then you get a happier me if I am upset and down then you get the upset and bitching me. And I am so trying to be my own friend. That's why I want to take care of me first my inner and outer me. How can I give myself to others when I barely am giving myself to myself. Does that make since.
