Inspirational Quotes

Saturday, February 05, 2011

As part of our 21 day challenge we were to find some inspirational quotes and post or blog about them. I found them and wrote them up in Word last night but baby girl started squalking before I could post them. =( So, here thay are...I found them here on SP.

“Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.” Jules Renard

Laziness is what got me here.

“Those who believe they can do something are probably right – and so are those who believe they can’t.”

My stinkin’ thinkin’ is one of the things keeping me here!

“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar

This one just made me laugh but it is so true! Every day is a struggle, every day needs to be covered in prayer and every day I must re- energize, re-motivate looking forward to my goals not backwards at my failures. I don’t stay clean and so why am I so surprised that my motivation wavers from day to day.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” Kenneth Blanchard

I must be more than interested in losing weight and this healthy lifestyle…I must be committed! No excuses; only results…I love that!

“Know the true value of time; snatch, seize and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness…never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.” Lord Chesterfield

I am such a poor manager of time! I confess it’s true. It’s one of the reasons that I am where I am weight wise. I was much better at it when I was working outside the home…I guess I need a time in clock or a boss waiting for me! =D And I am such a procrastinator! I’m trying to be a reformed procrastinator and I’ve successfully become that in some areas but long way to go! Learning to seize the day! Here’s a song it reminded me of…”Seize the Day” by Carolyn arends www.youtube.com/w

“A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn’t will find an excuse.” Stephan Dolley Jr.

NO MORE EXCUSES! I will find a way to win this fight against flab. I will be a healthy thin mom who runs joyfully after her kids and not huffing and puffing after them! I WILL be a wife that still turns her hubby’s head! =D I WILL have the energy to do all that the Lord has for me to do!

“It may be alright to be content with what you have, never with what you are.” Anonymous

Always striving to be more like Christ!!

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This makes me think of James 1:22-25 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Those who listen to the word but do not do what it says are like people who look at their faces in a mirror and, after looking at themselves, go away and immediately forget what they look like. But those who look intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continue in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

It also makes me think of the whole “heart knowledge” vs “head knowledge.” I can know what to do but until I do it that knowledge serves no use!

    Thanks for sharing, isn't all of it true? Somewhere along the line, that's what got all of us where we are at present. Reality is a big shock sometimes, but oh, so necessary. emoticon
