Tonight was and is a scattering of many quotes that reflect different areas that all come into play on this journey. From honor, as we honor our start and commitment to getting healthy. Chance by finding SP and taking the chance putting ourselves out there. Stepping from the shadows we have so long hid in.
Truth for who do we hurt if we are not truthful to our selves and others.
Teamwork which is such an important focal point on Sp. Without teamwork how do we go from the starting point to the final destination on reaching our goals. So long we tried and tried in vane to do it alone. Time and time again the weight came back. With our teams and support and working together sharing our goals and ideals and opinions and tips...we all are success stories. From needing to lose 10 pounds to 300 pounds and for some much more. Yet there is really no difference in each of us when we take away the scale and the numbers. We are one. We are the Teams , We are the support systems for each other. We are Sisters and Brothers who are fighting the fight of our lives..
Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed.
I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
Henri Frederick Amiel:
Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be kind.
Henry Van Dyke:
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.
"While both joy and sorrow are fleeting, and often intertwined, love has the power to overcome both. And love can last forever." ~ Deb Plouse Fulton,
"Photographs are precious memories . . . the visual evidence of place and time and relationships . . . ritual talismans for the treasure chest of the heart." ~ Robert Fulghum
When you love what you’re doing, you’ll never give up. You’ll keep focused, you’ll push yourself and you’ll feel motivated. When you can align your passions with your goals, then the whole mindset thing will eventually catch up with you. That desire to accomplishing your goals kicks in.
It’s almost like your goals become your passion,and when your goals become part of your passion, then you can’t help but to achieve them.~ Stanley Tang
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.

Be honorable yourself if you wish to associate with honorable people.
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.”
Nobody can acquire honor by doing what is wrong”
Alexander Graham Bell: Quote on Strength
What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists...and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want...and are fully determined not to quit until you get it.
