Your smallest actions add up to something big

Another great quote to reflect on health

For want of a nail, the shoe was lost. For want of the shoe, the horse was lost. For want of the horse, the rider was lost. For want of the rider, the battle was lost. For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail!

- Old English rhyme

Everything you do makes a difference. Even if you're not on the front lines leading the effort, you have a contribution to make. Without your contribution, no matter how small, so many other things would never happen. The world needs what you have to offer. You have no idea how the simplest of your everyday actions can effect your child, and even people you've never met. Chances are, you'll never know. But if you're looking for a purpose to work toward, all you need is the desire and the right perspective. Define yourself as your task, and that's all you'll ever be. Define yourself as your contribution to your family, and suddenly you're a very important part of a bigger picture. The biggest pictures are the ones where there's room for everyone to be seen.

Looking forward to ice skating w/my kids & friends. Anyone have any healthy dinner ideas for tonight? I'm thing of making Beef & burgundy a RR & Oprah recipe I have from years ago.

    Love this blog. :) This is something I had to learn the painful way. I always felt like I couldn't exercise if I wasn't eating right and I couldn't eat right if I wasn't exercising because neither would make a difference without the other. But I'm taking little steps. After all - never stare up the stairs just step up the steps!

    So very true, the smallest of actions can change your day.
Today I chose to smile at the rude coffee vendor than to take their mood and make it mine.
I chose to be happy and try to make other happy.

Have fun skating! I havn't done that in years!
Have a FANTASTIC night!

    How true this is. Especially today when young people are feeling the pull to go the wrong way. We need to keep showing them their potential.

SP healthy reflection for today

To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

- Mother Teresa, missionary

While you work to be a spark for your loved ones, don't forget that your light is only as strong as the fuel you supply it with. That means food. Good food. Eating plenty and eating right keep that flame from dying out. When you're at the top of your game, your body uses up nutrients as fast as you can put them in. Starving yourself, even for a little while, takes your flame down a notch or two and is a very bad idea for your health. And without real nutritional value, junk food is just as useless as no food at all. A healthy, balanced diet is like a constant power boost for your pregnancy. Replenish your energy before you wear out, and your fire will burn brighter and brighter every day.

Love this one, great reminder for myself when we are surrounded by xmas cookies & other goodies(which I adore)

    Interesting because if you are out all day volunteering or at parties, you either eat what is there or starve. Perhaps we should pack healthy snacks before we leave the house.

Todays SP Healthy Reflection

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.

- Sam Ewing, humorist

A meaningful life requires hard work

Part of being a good leader and good example is holding people accountable to their promises. To reach your goals, you need to be a strong leader of yourself. That means making sure you live up to the promises you made to yourself and to others. Your goals are important to you. They'll also require some work. If you could put one person in charge of your most personal, most precious goals, would you hire someone who looks for the easy way out or just talks a good game? Or would you entrust them to the person who willingly takes action and does whatever is needed to make it happen? You can handle the job. Prove yourself trustworthy by showing up every day with your sleeves rolled up.
