"When you make a mistake, don't look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power."

I'm so glad you're here Siegrid! Yeah, SP works like MAGIC for me. When I was a lot bigger, all I wanted to do was agree with and please everyone and now I am my OWN person. I love it!!!!!

I love these quotes and I took all of mine from SparkPeople.
This one is also in my signature..
It's not who you think you are that holds you back...it's who you think you're not...
anonymous.

I have had poor self esteem for most of my life and have only started liking who I am in the past year, so SparkPeople not only helped me with my weight but that and many other things as well

SPARK PEOPLE ROCKS!!!!

It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children.

Hi, team! I thought we could use a little spicing up so I thought we could post quotes! It doesn't matter what you post, as long as it's uplifting, okay? And we can comment on these quotes too, if anyone wants to. I'll begin.

"The only gift is a portion of thyself."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

I hope you'll post yours, let's try to have at least one a day.


Peace Out,
Sandy
