Renewal and Recommitment

Sparodic attempts-i.e. lack of consistently have plagued me during the past six months. However, I recently read a blog by JMerleau which shook me up: Shut and Sweat was the tile of the blog. Merlau's blogs inspire me. Especially important to my state of mind was his quote:

"We must train from the inside out. Using our strengths to attack and nullify any weaknesses. It's not about denying a weakness may exist but about denying its right to persist."

It was the notion of persitence over weaknesses which resonated in me. Though I have read Sparkpeople emails, articles, recipes etc. daily through the 6 moths, I have not commited to healthy living as much as I did today. Thank you JMerlau.

Most of All

Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

We all have been given the gift of life. So take this gift and live it well by laughing more, smiling more and seeing what you have. Oh, how beautiful life is when we live with a grateful heart and share that heart with others. emoticon
