I say amen to that Maci.

There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. - Unknown

Go out there w/gusto! You wouldn't care so much what others thought of you if you realized that they don't care much! People are into themselves, so get those stretch pants on, or get to that class and don't be afraid to move.

Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

- Edgar A. Guest

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. ~Jacob A. Riis

I find a lot of inspiration and motivation from quotes and try to find one everyday that means something to me for whatever reason. Today I was tempted to skip my exercise all together and then found this:

"There are only 2 choices; make progress or make excuses"

It worked for me!

I had such an unbelivable busy day today. But was able to complete my MEAN IT IN MAY goals! Anyways my inspirational read today was based on how we use our time. Here is the introduction to the very short but inspiring movie, linked below:

Every moment today is a priceless moment, and each one belongs to us to use as we choose. Here's a gentle reminder to treasure and make the most of each priceless moment, because life is too short to waste, and too precious to leave to routine.

Hubs and I were just saying that today. How we really don't need much these days. I really don't need much of anything that doesn't feel good. Drama, unhealthy foods, neg influences/people, clutter, etc. What I do need is to concentrate on what works! sparks is one of them! Happy Sunday!

I saw this today, and it really hit home:

Keep in mind that the chaos you seem to be attracting is all part of the shift..

You are exactly where you need to be at this time. The chaos you seem to be experiencing is what has to be stirred up in order for you to see what needs to be reorganized, sifted through and maybe tossed aside. That which no longer serves you is in your face to be sliced from your experience. Take this opportunity to release. The moon is in a perfect place for you to do so.

Honor yourself this way and let go..

Sometimes when I let all that fluff get in the way of what I want, I can lose sight of my goals. It is definately time for me to sift through some things and toss aside the clutter!
