The Six Best Doctors
~ E.B. White

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend And charge you not a shilling.

"You wouldn't care about how much other people think about you, if you knew really how often they do." Dr Phil.

Most others are busy worrying about what "they" look like, just like you are, so get on that party dress and woohoo the new yr in it! or get on those jogging clothes and get walking, noone cares what you look like but you!

I have two favorites:

Some succeed because they are destined to. Most succeed because they are determined to.

Don't be upset with the results you don't get from the work you didn't do.

One pound at a time, one mile at a time, one inch at a time - I will get there.

I'm not sure how motivation it is but I read this this morning and it really struck a chord:

"Problems were made to be solved. Life was made to be lived. Although sometimes we may be in over our heads-yes, we may even go under a few moments and gulp a few mouthfuls of water, we won't drown. We're wearing - and have always been wearing-a life jacket. That support jacket is called 'God'."

Everyone is scared sometimes. And sometimes everyone is scared to the point of terrified. So don’t be surprised or even disappointed when you get that feeling in your gut. Keep moving – the feeling will eventually pass and you’ll have another “got thru it” experience to add to you repertoire.

One of my favorites & something I am trying to be mindful of these past few weeks.

"It's impossible," said pride. "It's too risky," said experience. "It's pointless," said reason. "Give it a try," whispered the heart.

Inspiring me this week?? Someone sent me a quote that simply said, "fall down seven times, get up eight."
Sounds simple, but I really needed it this week because I did not follow my plan a few times, but restarted again with the next meal.

It's never too late - never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.

Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Joy comes from the inside out, not the outside in.

Today IS going to be a good day!

I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies. - Pietro Aretino
