2015 Winter 5% Challenge Commitment:

********See action plan below***********

Words that keeps me going ......

"If it is to be, it is up to me."

****************************************
"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsibility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

****************************************

�I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.� Jimmy Dean

****************************************

We can't change the cards we're dealt, only how we play the hand." - Randy Pausch

****************************************

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen

****************************************

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." Michael Jordan

I borrowed this from another Sparker (SHARON10002), and decided to share with my SparkFriends as these are great thoughts for February:

F - Forge ahead no matter how small the step.
E - Each new day offers the chance to start anew.
B - Believe in yourself and all that you are, and wish to be.
R - Remember the reason why you started this journey.
U - Unless you move, the place where you are is the place you will always be.
A - A bad day is only as bad as you let it be.
R - Roll with life's punches, and rise again.
Y - You are loved . . .

Hope you have a fabulous February!

I read this today and like the message it sends.
Sheila emoticon

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
