Secrets of Success
"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."
I hope you're having a good weekend so far, Sparkfriend! I just wanted to stop by and share a couple of great quotes with you. Keep pushing to reach your goals, one day at a time. Always believe that you are worth your absolute best effort...because you are!
"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life.
Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."

"You must take personal responsibility.
You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind,
but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of."
Dropping by with some yellow emoticons to thank you for commenting on my "Yellow" blog. I hope your week has been going great!

Thank for your comment on my blog and for your concern!
I was trying to boost my very slow (euphemism) metabolism during one week of Juice fast (same calorie range, nothing unhealthy).
I was not deprived, don't worry! It was not a diet I was going to follow on the long run, it was supposed to be just 1 week to reboost my metabolism. I thought that avoiding high carbs would make a difference; in my case, it didn't.
Unfortunately, I suffer from hypothyroidism and I have an underactivity of adrenal glands, I have been having ups and downs for the last 5 years (if only it was 5 days!) and the way my body reacts is totally unpredictable.

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!
