Words of Wisdom from a Nine Year-Old

Friday, March 22, 2013

My kids and I were looking through the SparkPeople motivational quotes page. There's a lot of good stuff there, and my kids recognized that. We all printed off quotes that would help us in our work, school, healthy journey.

After reading the quotes, my nine year-old came up with his own.

Don't quit if you don't want to start over.
If you quit, you'll have to do it over.

I thought it was great. He wrote it down and now it is in the rotation of motivational quotes that we have on our fridge.

Have a wonderful, healthy weekend! I'm off to go take a nice brisk walk with the kids since it's finally above 25 degrees!
