Positive Thought for the Day from Earl Nightingale

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

emoticon
Donít let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.

EARL NIGHTINGALE
American motivational speaker, 20th century

    A great quote for us to remember. Especially us Sparkers. We know that this journey will take some time and sometimes the time can be overwhelming. Taking it day by day helps greatly to our goal. We can do this! We have already did the first step...being on SP, so nothing is standing in our way!
Actually time IS on our side. We can take it slowly...no race to get there. emoticon
Thanks for the quote. emoticon

    I like this - isn't fear something - it just comes along in anything it can get it. But we do have a way to get past it by taking action. Thanks for the quote.

Want to Exercise More? Try Counting Your Blessings!

Monday, May 17, 2010

emoticon = emoticon

Several blogs ago (12/29/09), I wrote about an article that I read 5 years ago that stated that keeping a gratitude journal can improve your physical and emotional health. Today, I came across this article (click on link below) that found that people who keep a gratitude journal EXERCISED MORE REGULARLY! And those who kept the gratitude journal DAILY got more benefits than those who only wrote in their gratitude journal weekly. Hey, if you are struggling with exercise motivation, try keeping a gratitude journal! Let your fingers do the walking initially! Be sure to count your blessings today.

Peace,
Nancy

    I have to keep this at hand when I have those days of stress. There are times when my mind just thinks of the stressful things when I SHOULD be sleeping! The exercise that they listed will help a great deal. Maybe to get myself off of focusing on the negatives. The problem that we have today is that there is so much negatives in the way our lifestyles are since 10years ago. I even stopped reading the paper and just listening to the highlights of the news because it is all but negative and sets your day off on the wrong foot. I wish they would have more of the positives out there for us to focus on. Here on SP I found that I am more in a positive nature than before I came aboard...and that is sure a plus for my health and mind well being! Thanks for the blog...I will certainly use it in the future. The way the economy is now adays I will probably have to use the 10 second destressor daily... emoticon After focusing on positives I will have more peace of mind. My graditude to your graditude article! emoticon
There is so much to be thankful even in these times we do tend to overlook them and not count our blessings emoticon

    Thank you, Nancy. I enjoyed the article.

I was reading this week in Psalms 42.... Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again - my Savior and my God!

It is so easy to be discouraged because things don't happen at our pace. But that is a good thing, because sometimes my pace is stopped. :-)

I hope that you have a great rest of the week.....Bill

I hope that you are feeling much better. It looks like you might have overdone it at work, but hopefully are getting rested up and healed up during the weekend.

I hope that you have a wonderful Easter Sunday....Bill

Honor God with your body

Thursday, April 01, 2010

You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
--1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I just got this scripture passage as a daily devotional. How timely for the season and for what we are trying to do on Spark People.

Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
Nancy

    Thanks for posting this, Nancy. Once I was convicted that taking care of my body was a spiritual issue, I lost weight. Before I knew God cared about how I cared for my body, I couldn't keep motivated. First Place 4 Health gave me the motivation to keep at it and stay with it. When Jesus is given first place, everything else falls into place, including attention to health.

If anyone wants to know more,

Ha
ppy Easter, Everyone!
