This is the first day of the rest of your life.

Monday, March 04, 2013

This is one of my dad's favorite sayings. I was reminded of it this morning as I have been reading through other's blogs. So many people have been saying that they've experienced some kind of down fall - like starting, stopping, then coming back to SparkPeople to find they are at their heaviest or letting life get in the way of doing what they should for their weight. But, I really think that we all need to remember that we will all run into bumps in the road - no path is perfectly smooth. And, we are blessed with each new day - and every one is the first day of the rest our lives. With each new day we get a completely fresh start, a tabula rasa (a Latin term used in teaching meaning blank slate).

What will you make of your tabula rasa?

    Absolute fact. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second is an opportunity. Life is all about choices.
