Determination ... Success!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Life can sometimes be harder than that ... harder than simply the choices that we make. But, what if we simply start with the choices that we can make? What if we just change those things? What would happen then? Would life be better?

Start with just one thing. It doesn't even have to be a big thing. Simply one small thing. Walk to the mailbox. Skip the extra serving. Get up 10 minutes earlier and walk laps up and down the hall. Think of one little thing, do it, and feel proud of your accomplishment!

YOU can sooooooo do this! One step at a time! One choice at a time. It's your journey. You hold the roadmap. Make it exactly what you want it to be!

    That is such an awesome truth. I am thinking of how 2 yrs. ago I weighed so much more and have ditched all those clothes. It started with smaller amounts of exercise and not eating quite so much.

    I agree! One small baby step at a time. I compared my weightloss journey today to a friend like the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race, but if you go full force you'll get burnt out and quit. Great inspirational blog! emoticon

    Yes, this is a life style journey that God has me on, and I'll do everything I can, to walk after Him, and not only be proud of me, but proud of the fact that I'm doing exactly what God has planned for me!!!
