7 Days of Inspiration- Day 4

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Day 4

Your dreams are just waiting to be lived.



I had to pause there before writing. This one really struck a cord with me. Especially lately.

I'm waiting to lose weight.....I'm waiting for my dream job to come along.....I waiting for my life to begin again...

Pretty pathetic isn't it. ...... well....it is to me.

I can't wait anymore. I have to start living my dreams and making them happen. I'm going to use my unique qualities and my new found confidence to make them come true.

I'm going to plan and set achievable goals to get where I'm going. And I'm going to have fun a long the way.

I don't know what this plan is going to look like but I'm starting it today. I will share it with you later.

What are you going to do about your dreams that are waiting to be lived?

Catch ya tomorrow!

Hugs,

Keri

7 Days of inspiration - Day 3

Day 3

Confidence can take you so much farther than doubt.

Isn't that the truth? When I think about times when I have let doubt get the better of me...it almost makes me angry. Doubt just sucks all of the good stuff out of you.

Confidence is the key to our journey.....if we were more confident...it would give us the motivation to win the race. Confidence also feels so much better than doubt. Close your eyes.....now think about......confidence. Now do the same with doubt. Remember those feelings as you make your choices this week.

I want the confident feelings.......it's all the good stuff....

Wanna join me?

Hugs,

Keri

    Confidence just helps you push yourself a bit more.
Take a breath and reach just a little more. It is amazing where that little bit will take you.
Can't wait for your next blog.

    You are so right! Why do we forget the good things that take us further in our journey? We always get stuck, over and over in the same place. TIME TO STEP OUT WITH CONFIDENCE!

7 Days of Inspiration - Day 2

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Day 2

Forget your "flaws"! You've got a list of good qualities a mile long!


Interesting isn't it? If you read yesterdays blog, and followed the instructions.....I would almost be willing to bet that your good qualities are very similar to yesterday's assignment. Or are they?

Today...think about what others would consider your "good qualities". As you think about those......how genuine do you think they are? Are they really what you would consider your good qualities? Or is it a mask you wear?

Our weight loss journey is about peeling off those masks and facing our realities. In doing this we can change our outcome. If we put aside our masks.....our flaws....and concentrate on those things that make us GREAT! We can change our future.....and our outsides will reflect our insides!

What do you think?

See you tomorrow!

Hugs,

Keri

    Wonderful! Iwould agree with NANCY-! I use my humor as a cover many times, but how can I use it that way if it's not there to begin with!

Keep up the good work!

    Thomas Jefferson was bad at managing money, but great at so many other things.
Ben Franklin and the kite stuff.... kind of makes me wonder about him.

Sometimes my vivaciousness is used as a mask, but it truly is a part of me. What is is used for is to mask my disdain for routine. So I can use this quality to keep my life fresh and alive.

Keri,
Thanks for doing this. As you can see it is helping me to gain valuable insight.

You are ....

7 Days of inspiration - Day One

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

(7 Days of Inspiration is borrowed from Womens World. They have provided the phrase and the rest is mine.)

Day 1

Be yourself. There is no one better.


Sometimes on this road to self discovery, we are so focused on trying to become what every "normal" person is and we forget what makes each of us unique. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. We all have those little things that make us ......well....us!

The trick is finding a way to keep our uniqueness and incorporating it into our new healthy bodies.

So how do we do that?

Start a list today and write down the wonderful things about you. I don't care about the things other people tell you that are good about you......what are you proud of? You know...deep inside....you know what I'm talking about.

Make that list.....and look at it for the next 7 days. It's time for a change. It's time to make a difference. Let's use our strengths and build on it.

Care to share????


Here's the start to mine......

1. I have a great sense of humor.
2. I wear my heart on my sleeve.
3. I care deeply.
4. I love to sing and dance.
5. I love making new friends.


Have a great day! See you tomorrow!



Hugs,

Keri

    Thanks for this blog; you have made me pause. There is so much more to each of us than what is seen on the outside. You are helping us to look at the totality of ourselves. We are not simply height and weight and the ratio that results from that.

    I read day 2 also so I came back to this one. Hmmm What are some good things about me?
1 There is no task I am above as long as I am able to do it.
2 I will help anyone.
3 I only like to edify others in Jesus name
4 When I do something, I do it with care.
5 I love to give.

That took a little time but not as much as I thought it would. I need these to be magnified in my awareness of myself. I have not focused or really looked for such things. thank you. I know Jesus is Good

    Alrighty...
I'm starting a bit late... but I love this.

I'm an adventurer (walk in nature)
I'm an explorer. ( Love to check out new places)
I'm spontaneous (sometimes to a fault) :D
I'm a student ( I love to learn new things)
I'm a teacher ( love to share what I know)
I have a silly sense of humor.
I like to celebrate and appreciate life.

Great Blog!!!

    Keri,

What a great blog. I hope to do this. I know I know if you don't do it now you (I) probably won't but duty calls.

Maybe that's one of my traits - I'm reliable
2. I like to make people feel good.
3. I'm funny (at least to me I am)
4. I'm loyal
5. I try to make the world a better place everyday because I was here.
6. I care

Well that wasn't so hard. Thanks - I'm feeling pretty good right now.

Later,

Vandal>
