Learn from yesterday... live for today... hope for tomorrow... The important thing is not to stop Learning... and to not give up... Keep Going... Go... Go

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear... If we believe that tomorrow will be better... we can bear a hardship today...

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

Let your hopes... not your hurts... shape your future...

Feel a Little Good... awhile eating something you shouldn't...
Feel A lot Bad Later... with eating something you shouldn't...

Feel a Little Bad... before or during work out...
Feel a lot Good Later... After working out...

Why not focus on what youíre doing right instead? If you take a step back, learn from it and take two steps forward...

Persistence is key. Accept the fact that you might not make it ~on the first try. In a recent study, only 40% of people who successfully followed New Year's resolutions did it on the first try; 17% of resolution achievers took six or more tries before they got it right Ė but they did get it right...

DO leave room for failure. DONíT expect perfection....

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon *~* ~ * ~*

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon *~* ~ * ~*

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon *~* ~ * ~*

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses...

* ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon * ~ * ~ * ~ * emoticon *~* ~ * ~*

The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low...
