Good one! Perfection must be very boring, but I'll certainly never know for sure. LOL

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

Having just turned 50 and entering the last half of a century...I have the goal of turning things around and making better and more positive choices from now on! I want my NEXT 50 (or how ever many years I have left here) to be full of successes and not be wasted. That goes for my spiritual life, my relationships, my fitness and health.

Good things are coming!




Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.


And we all lived happily ever after...
~Susan...ski

Persistence not perfection.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

LOVE that Scripture too. This one is long one .

“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.”
Mother Teresa

The odds of hitting your target go up dramatically when you aim at it. -- Mal Pancoast

Please share a favorite mantra and maybe even WHY it means so much to you.


Here are some I found in an article.


Slipping backwards? You may be backing up to get a running start. - Dan Millman

(Good, POSITIVE, way to think about this!)

"You aren't fat—you HAVE fat."

To which I add,
"If you HAVE fat, then you have plenty of stored energy to accomplish something!"

Be stronger than your strongest excuse.
(It is so much easier (especially if you're creative) to think up excuses than it is to get MOVING!)

Remember that any exercise is better than no exercise.
(Very helpful for the BEGINNER'S mindset)

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, rather than a second-rate version of someone else. - Judy Garland

(Being a person of low self-esteem, THIS SPARKLES me.)

If the plan doesn't work, change the plan—but never the goal.
(that one is VERY important to me, since losing weight is difficult for me.)

"If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you". - Fred DeVito
(this one is great when wondering if you're doing ENOUGH.)

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.
(NOW THIS ONE, IS A WAKER-UPPER !)

Don't let perfect get in the way of better! - SparkPeople member LAURA.BEALL
(After all, being PERFECT is not POSSIBLE- but BETTER is ALWAYS possible.)




Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.


And we all lived happily ever after...
