Dojorat-I liked your "Greatest Day Ever" and "15 Things" post. Thank you!

Everybody...I'm reading "Coach Yourself Thin" by Hottinger and Scholtz. It's about changing your thinking about weight loss as a diet to sustainable lifestyle weight loss so you won't fall back into bad habits that make you gain. I love it!

"Slow and steady wins the race!"

15 things you probably never knew or thought about....

1. At least five people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least fifteen people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. If not for you, someone may not be living.
8. You are special and unique.
9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, sooner or later, you will get it.
13. Always remember the compliments you receive. Forget the rude remarks.
14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

"Struggling and suffering are the essence of a life worth living. If you're not pushing yourself beyond the comfort zone, if you're not demanding more from yourself - expanding and learning as you go - you're choosing a numb existence. You're denying yourself an extraordinary trip." -Dean Karnazes

Love this Rocky quote! :)

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”
The motivational speech Rocky gives to his son in “Rocky Balboa” (2006)

Wouldnt it be nice to wake up realizing every day was the best day ever?! Love this emoticon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate!

Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.

I will go through this day with my head held high, and a happy heart. I will marvel at the Universe seemingly simple gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds. Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.

Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people. I'll make someone smile. I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.

Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for her and how much she means to me.

Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things the Universe has already given me.

I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in the Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.

And tonight, before I got to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon.

As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank the Universe for the best day of my life. And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child, excited with expectation because now tomorrow is going to be the best day of my life, ever!

This may seem kind of corny but I just found this song by Katy Perry (whom I never really liked until now) Yesterday and it is unbelievably motivating! It immediately went into my running mix on my I-pod and I cant stop listening to it! This is now my Theme song for the year!
Below are the words and a link to it on you tube:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw



Firework ~ Katy Perry
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams, but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you?
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane, comes a rainbow

Maybe the reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you know

You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the Fourth of July

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “ah, ah, ah!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

In Toscas Best Body Now book she has a whole section on inspiration and motivation, she says retraining your brain to think positive empowering thoughts helps guarantee success. I'm sure we have all experienced this in one way or another, someone tells an inspiring story you read an inspiring quote book etc. and your whole world shifts and suddenly the impossible seems possible!
This board is going to be devoted to just that, anything you find inspiring or motivating and would like to share, it can be a quote, story, anything! Have fun with it and hopefully we can inspire and motivate each other! emoticon
