I decided to start back up with the challenges even though we are all in school. They seem to really help bring us all together and stay on track! Hope you enjoy, and don't forget to post back! I love to hear your thoughts!
here are some quotes for your wellness journals!
Leonardo's Mona Lisa is just a thousand smears of paint. Michelangelo's David is just a million hits with a hammer.
we're all of us a million bits put together
the right way. -- Chuck Palahniuk
life is like an hourglass.
sooner or later, everything hits the bottom.
and you'll just have to be patiant
and wait for someone to turn around.
but sometimes, we're so focused on finding our happy ending, we don't learn how to read the signs. how to tell the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. and maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe....it's you, one your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. maybe the happy ending is just moving on. or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarressment...you never gave up hope. -- He's Just Not That Into You
as long as the music's loud enough,
we won't hear the world falling apart.
i will never forget that the only reason i'm standing here today is because somebody, somewhere stood up for me when it was risky. stood up when it was hard. stood up when it wasn't popular. and because that somebody stood up, a few more stood up. and then a few thousand stood up. and then a few million stood up. and standing up, with courage and clear purpose, they somehow managed to change the world. -- Barack Obama
you cry but you don't tell anyone
that you might not be the golden one,
and you're tied together with a smile
but inside you're coming undone.
-- Tied Together With A Smile; Taylor Swift
prove that you are who
you always thought you were,
not who they said you had to be.
your life is defined by its opportunities.
even the ones you miss.
-- The Mysterious Case of Benjamin Button
if we could decide who to love,
it would be much simpler
and much less magical.
i think life should be more like TV. i think all of life's problems ought to be solved in 30 minutes with simple homilies, don't you? i think weight and oral hygiene ought to be our biggest concerns. i think we should all have powerful, high-paying jobs, and everyone should drive fancy sports cars. all our desires should be instantly gratified. women should always wear tight clothes, and men should carry powerful handguns. life should be more glamorous, thrill-packed, and filled with applause, don't you think? -- Calvin & Hobbes
sometimes, when you keep patching
things up over and over again,
all you have left are the patches.
and you forget about what you had underneath.
i should hate him for the way
that he's treating me, but i don't.
i wish i did. but maybe that's
what real love is. not hating someone
when you have every reason to.
live by the sun,
love by the moon.
the only people that
tear happy people down,
are those that are unhappy.
-- One Tree Hill
Make a short list of 5-10 things short term goals. They can be as simple as "go to all my classes these week" to as complicated as "organize cd collection" whatever you choose, make sure they are realistic and achievable. If you achieve all on your list, reward yourself with something you've really been wanting!
