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.

There are times in one's life that can be very challenging. That is where I am right now. I found this perfect quote from a truly great baseball player whom I know went through very tough times.

Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And donít pray when it rains if you donít pray when the sun shines. -Leroy Satchel Paige

So I will keep my head up, pray a lot and find a way with God's help to get through this hard time.

On this Tuesday, think about the choices you will make today. Are they choices that will help you to become the best you? Are they choices that will share your inner beauty with others? Hope your day will make you a better you, as well as touch the lives of others with your kind heart. We are given this day only once, so let's make today a day a very special day.

Whenever something is important you find a way to make it happen. Well being healthy is important... it is much easier to work on being healthy then to work on "I need to go on a diet". emoticon
