Through the years I've continued to win small prizes now and then. Nothing grand. Just enough to keep me interested. When I talked my husband into standing on a number for a prize drawing over the weekend as we walked through a store promoting Father's Day, he was very reluctant. But, he relented and stood on a number adjacent to the one I picked. Well, my number was chosen and I received some bags of nuts and a gift certificate for clothing. It was a thrill for me. He, of course, won nothing. Both of us had reinforcement for the future choices we make about entering little contests. Getting healthier is similar to me. When I have little wins along the way - I can walk farther, lift more, lose a few ounces or a few pounds, etc. - I am encouraged to keep trying. Success breeds success in so many things. So, I'll keep working towards those little wins in my life. They give me a thrill. They encourage me to keep on trying. I hope you have some wins of all sorts in your life today and every day.
