"We cannot do everything at once but we can do something at once." Calvin Coolidge

Received this quote today and it made me think about how often we wait to do something.

The excuses are endless - it's to hot - cold. I don't have time. I need to do something else.

ETC ETC ETC. I have used all these and then some.

We all want better days but we have to make that happen.

I am just getting over a respiratory infection and don't have a lot of energy yet. So I have made a commitment to do 10 minutes each morning this week. I am using the Wii fit plus. Next week I will add an additional 5 minutes until I can do 30 minutes at a time.

This infection really knocked me out for almost 3 weeks. It is so frustrating to be doing something and then just coughing and not being able to stop.

It makes me realize how great people are that have chronic illnesses and continue to do everything that they can.

This is so true we have to believe that WE CAN DO THIS! Sometimes it is the smallest things that we do that make the biggest impact on our lives. It is having that glass of water instead of soda, taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

As long as we continue to move forward we will reach our goals. It may take a little longer for me than it does for someone else but I am ME not someone else. What works for some may not work for me but I will find my path and will reach the finish line. The person that crosses the finish line last still beats anyone that quits the race. So while I may not finish first I WILL FINISH !!!

I love all these motivational quotes. I have set up a file on my computer that is my screen saver, so they cycle through and give me motivation to keep doing it!

    I liked the idea of a file of motivational quotes as a screen saver. Thanks for the idea. I agree that the excuses are always there just waiting to jump in and stop you from what you know you should do. Thanks for excuse buster blog. emoticon
