emoticon just dropping by to wish you a WONDERFUL Wednesday and share with you a quote by Steve Young:

“The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before”

So, remember, all you have to do today is something that is better than the day before! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

GOOD MORNING emoticon

Here's a tip to keep you on your Spark plan:

Enjoy and fill up with seasonal produce! Visit your local farmer's market or take advantage of the bountiful crops from your garden. Add produce to everything you eat, including topping pizza with veggies, adding more vegetables to soups or scrambling eggs with veggies. This enables you to fill up on high-fiber, low-calorie foods rather than unhealthy options!

Make it a emoticon SPARK day!!!

Happy Wednesday, the weekend is almost here. Do you have any plans for celebrating Labor Day. I think we are going to be having a family cookout after church on Sunday so we can get all the family together.

Hope you have an awesome day.

Stopping by a little late for today's inspiration, but it is an awesome one by C. JoyBell C.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”

I think this is something most of us learn far too late in our lives, but it is something that we really need to understand so, better late than never. Here's hoping you live tomorrow without wasting a single second of your precious beautiful life! emoticon emoticon
