Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

- Chinese Proverb

Never giving up

Do you ever get frustrated because things are moving too slowly in your life? Many people don't realize that building a foundation for success does not happen overnight. It is a slow process in which you are constantly working and learning. After all, that foundation must remain strong, even in times of failure or crisis. This takes time! You may have to remind yourself that "failing" is only failure if you quit; otherwise it's a learning opportunity. So don't worry if your life seems to be moving in slow motion. Concentrate on building a solid foundation and learning from your back steps.

    Too true. I often have to remind myself that progress does take time. I sometimes get impatient and want everything to move faster.

Today's SP Healthy Reflection

A ship in the harbor is safe. But that's not what ships are built for.

- Anonymous

Navigating your ship

Taking the easy way out is, well, easy. Human beings naturally stick with their normal routines because they offer feelings of security. But by staying in the same routine, you miss out on new opportunities. In 1975, a third-year student at Harvard University decided to drop out and pursue something else. The student's name was Bill Gates. He saw an opportunity and took the risk. While this doesn't mean that every dream will transform you into a billionaire, it shows that some of world's geniuses took chances to follow their dreams. If you are waiting around for your goals to just fall into your lap, it could take awhile. But your goals are achievable--if you're willing to break from the norm and cast your ship down uncharted waters.

Stand for something or fall for anything.

- Anonymous

What do you stand for?

Have you ever thought about the power of having a purpose? Everyone needs something that gets them moving in the morning, keeps them going through the day, and makes them continue to work toward a goal. Take some time to think about the activities you are involved in and how they relate to your personal purpose. For the activities that don't serve your purpose, ask yourself why you continue with them. Perhaps you need to reevaluate your commitments and renew your conviction toward your purpose.

Not sure what happened to my blog yesterday? I was pretty sure I did one. Oh well, did some dance central in the afternoon after going to the local fall festival w/the family. Today I went for a run/walk to enjoy some of this summerlike weather we are having here while ds was in school for 5.5 miles emoticon emoticonWhat are your plans for this afternoon/evening?

    Another spark friend lost her blog today. I wonder if there is something strange going on with the sight? Hmmm ....?
Glad you had a good day! I've been doing some deep cleaning in cabinets and closets today. The dh is working late tonight so I'll probably keep doing more cleaning while I don't have anyone else around. If I don't get worn out before then. LOL Keep smiling sunshine.

I never made it to the gym yesterday still sore from bootcamp. My son encouraged me to work out after lunch yesterday by asking me to play dance central on our Kinect. He fell asleep to the music while I danced a couple hours away. emoticon
