Persistence, not perfection.

-read on feautured sparker/staffer 'Dietgirl' but it's in other motivation articles I've seen also

Looking forward to make the Roaring 20's the best decade!! Making it happen!!! Motivation into momentum.
My words-of-the-year: *SMART* (goals) & *evolve* (2018 was persist, 2019 was: *eMbody KIND(/ness) &/ =balance= )

My 2020 goal is TRACKING FOOD to result in a loss of 100 pounds (so 111.20 on ticker, started year 11.2 down from summer 2019)
Jan-March fitness goal = PUSH-UPS! Starting with my age (now 57) wall push-ups....

Has anyone else read "Wild" (now a movie), about the woman who walked the Pacific Crest Trail from Southern California to Oregon alone? It brings home this very potential, with our weight loss and healthy living goals.

“I want to lose weight by eating nothing but moon pies, which have significantly less gravity than earthier foods such as fruits and vegetables.”
― Jarod Kintz, I Want

I'm not fond of change, but I figure since I have another about 20 years left on the planet, I may as well make the best of it. I did not realize it then, but a person in my life had a secret affair with moon pies...That was her favorite food in the whole world...She is my inspiration when I think of her...

I see the rainbows in your eyes... i see all the colors passing by... I sure like the things my eyes can do... especially when they see You... ~ Don Are you ready?? Todd I love YOU... Brittany... I love You too... Jennifer I love YOU most of All!

Hi - just joined today

My favorite to go along with my committment pledge I've made to myself -- from Maya Angelou

You did then what you knew how to do, when you knew better, you did better!

I now KNOW better so it's time for me to DO better!!!
(went and bought the poster board to make a collage -- have no idea how to get it onto my computer and then to here...but I"ll work on that!)

The process of making art is as valuable as the art itself. Experiencing sadness and anger can make you feel more creative, and by being creative, you can get beyond your pain or negativity. People's reactions to my work aren't necessarily important - it's fine if they have different opinions. If their response is good, then I feel good, but what I create has to do more with myself. When I express myself, I feel free.

Just found this wonderful site to day its just what i needed to get my self re sparked going to make me a quote book to go with my poster thanks for all the ones you have shared here are a few I like
1. Believe in your self and it will happen
2 Make one healthy choice and then make another
3 Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire." -Arnold Glasgow

4You don’t have to go fast you just have to go

5 The reason people give up is because they focus on how far they have to go and not how far they have come
6 Clear you mind of the words I Can’t
7 Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up.

so many of he ones i have found do not have the writer listed but i still like them glad i found this team to join its great and i feel some of the rocks are moving off my trail thanks

Wonderful quotes! So glad when others share quotes that inspire and motivate them. Here's another I heard today by poet and author David Whyte:

You fail at life when you do not live the one life that is your own and you attempt to live out someone else's life, mistaking it as your own.

(Betsy, so glad you checked in!)

Just found this group and making my first collage this week. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
- Albert Einstein

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
- Lou Holtz

Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them. A desire, a dream, a vision.
- Muhammed Ali

Learning a new way to live!

Achieving health and fitness will inspire

The I have selected for my Spark People motivator is from Winston Churchill:

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

I really like this one, it really says it all for me.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

I read down the current page of quotes. Great quotes.

Here's one by Michael Beckwith:

*** Energy flows where attention goes! ***

Even if you don't have time for cut-and-pasting or digital collaging, when an image draws you (often, of a desired trait or goal), keep it in your mind and begin "embracing" it as if already real, like putting on a nice piece of clothing and changing your look. This time, though, you're changing it from the inside out.

Today's healthy reflection really hit home for me...

"Should you find yourself at a loss, wondering what life is all about and what your purpose is, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity to wonder." - Unknown

"To be "heart healthy' focus on the positive; it's persistence rather than perfection that will create progress."


The difference between success and failure is the effort we put into getting there.

“Wisdom comes more from living than from studying.”
-Anonymous

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in—forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day—begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Cherish forever what makes you unique, ‘cuz you’re really a yawn if it goes.”
-Bette Midler

“Accept everything about yourself—I mean everything. You are you and that is the beginning and the end—no apologies, no regrets.”
-Clark Moustakas

I've noticed a trend among my friends lately that life is not being kind to them at the moment. So I thought I'd share a thought from the journal I kept when my own life fell apart not too long ago. It's a recurring thought I had that really helped pull me through. A mantra of sorts.

"A lifetime of beautiful tomorrows will flame up and blossom from the ashes of my meager yesterdays. Keep stoking the flame of your passions, pursue them relentlessly and you will forge a more brilliant future than you could have imagined."

There is dignity in suffering; nobility in pain; but failure is a salted wound, that burns and burns again !

Pain is weakness leaving the body

If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.” Letting go is love. Holding on is attachment

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody. – Bill Cosby


You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win. – Zig Ziglar

Every choice you make has an end result. – Zig Ziglar
