Now that I have your attention, I thought I'd share an email I received today...
DRINK, STEAL, SWEAR & LIE
I met this guy while I was in Albuquerque and he has a motto he lives by everyday. He said listen carefully and live by these 4 rules: Drink, Steal, Swear, & Lie.
I was shaking my head 'no', but he then told me to listen while he explained his four rules. So here they are:
1. "Drink" from the "everlasting cup" every day.
2. "Steal" a moment to help someone that is in worse shape than you are.
3. "Swear" that you will be a better person today than Yesterday.
4. And last, but not least, when you "lie" down at night, thank God for the blessings you received that day.

I am a physical, emotional, and spiritual being. I need to take care of all aspects of my being, not just the physical. The physical changes won't last if I haven't attended to the emotional and spiritual.
Sometimes, I think weight is my problem. But, when I take the time to journal or check in with my emotional and spiritual sides, I often find that it's not what I'm eating that contributes to weight gain - rather it's "what's eating me?" If I don't check in with my emotional/spiritual self to find out what's eating me, attempts at healing my physical self (weight loss) may be futile.
I don't know if this is true for you, but it is for me. If I tend to my soul (spiritual/emotional self), the physical healing will follow.

By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
C. H. Spurgeon
Sometimes, what we do on a daily basis seems insignificant. But, if we remember the little snail who also reached the ark, our seemingly insignificant daily healthier lifestyle choices will make a big impact when we look back at the last week, month, year of our life. Today, be the snail and persevere!
Blessings on your day, my fellow Sparkers!
