There are fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others. Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart, to do at least one worthy thing which you have long postponed, and to use your God-given abilities for the enrichment of someone less fortunate. Today you can make your life significant and worthwhile.

Grenville Kleiser, 1868-1935

I haven't been able to exercise much since I got sick...I've forced myself to a few times but I just am so congested it makes it really difficult to exercise.

A good cure for depression is having goals to work toward and exercise.

Okay I can REALLY agree with that one. I've had issues with depression in the past, in fact I probably still have depression but I try to drown it out by keeping busy and not letting it grab ahold of me.

Keep Walking...
Barbara Aldrich

Here we stand together,
Dressed in our pain,
Covered with scars
From wounds we did not ask for
Or deserve.

So what now?

We can't go back and relive our lives.
We can't take back the innocence we lost
Or make the sadness we felt into happiness.

But we can go on from here,
So let us start.

Stretch out your hand to mine,
Close your eyes
And slowly let the pain slip away.
Let go of the sadness;
It belongs to yesterday,
And let's walk.

The earth is firm beneath our feet.
The sun is warm on our face.
Heavenly Father sees our struggle,
Smiles at our effort,
And sends us strength.

My friends, we can't stay, looking back,
Lest we falter.
We must face forward,
Eyes wide open,
And keep on walking.

Hold tight and don't let go;
You aren't walking alone,
And neither am I.

Barbara is an EMT, mother of three,married 23 years

How would it be
if just for today
we thought less about contests and rivalries,
profits and politics,
winners and sinners,
and more about
helping and giving,
mending and blending,
reaching out
and pitching in?

How would it be?

Hi Kim,

We all fall victim of comparing our worth to appearances. Measuring yourself against others is too easy and like you said 'automatic.' To rise above it we have to take the extra but important step to avoid that:

Determine to define 'yourself' before you leave the house. We all have to discipline ourselves to be our own best friend and advocate.

Remember you are much much more than someone's outsides and good days. You have strengths, that are unique and one of a kind. Honor your need to 'matter.'

God does not make anything but 'Masterpieces.'

Love,
Barb

“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

But it is the rest of that quote...that particularly resonates in the current economy.

“One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.”

Wow. How did you know? That is a big problem I have -I am always measuring myself against others. I need to STOP it.
Now, how do I do that? It just seems so automatic to me.

Embrace you. You are unique. There is no one else like you in the entire universe. In honor of your unique self, it is good to acknowledge and embrace the special qualities that make you the person that you are. One way to do this is to not compare yourself with other people.Realizing and valuing our uniqueness enables us to bring out the best in ourselves so we can get on with living rather than preoccupying ourselves with meaningless comparisons. You will see how much you have and how special you are.

"JUST DO IT - Do not wait till you feel like
it. Just move your body through the motions
like a robot if that is all you can do. Face
the fact that some things do not inspire.
It is nice to want to. But do not wait
for the humor to hit you. Just do it."

Found this on another website. It is my favorite motto. It is so true, if we aren't going to be motivated, there is always Nike!

Something To Encourage You:
Your Dimension Of Greatness

No one can know the potential,
Of a life that is committed to win;
With courage - the challenge it faces,
To achieve great success in the end!

So, explore the Dimension of Greatness,
And believe that the world CAN be won;
By a mind that is fully committed,
KNOWING the task can be done!

Your world has no place for the skeptic,
No room for the DOUBTER to stand;
To weaken your firm resolution
That you CAN EXCEL in this land!

We must have VISION TO SEE our potential,
And FAITH TO BELIEVE that we can;
Then COURAGE TO ACT with conviction,
To become what GOD MEANT us to be!

So, possess the strength and the courage,
To conquer WHATEVER you choose;
It's the person WHO NEVER GETS STARTED,
That is destined FOREVER to lose!

"Your emotions are controlled by your circumstances or by your character."

Principle: Overlook the opportunity to take offense. There is always someone/something trying to disturb our strength under control. See it as an opportunity to build character instead of taking it on.

I am going to memorize this:

The secret to success is making very small, yet
very consistent, changes.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.

Whenever you feel 'short' or in 'need' of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love and friendship. I know it is often the last thing a person may want to do, but it has always worked for me. I just trust that the principle of reciprocity is true, and I give what I want.

Every moment is like a brand new car,if something is not going well, get in the moment,shift the
attitude and ride again.

(I made this one up but have used it for years to during times of fatigue or stress. All I do now is vision the shiny red convertible and I know what to do. You are the first to know.)

I agree! The big "P" Procrastination is avoided by not thinking about whatever it is you need to do too much before doing it.

mine too - when I find myself trying to procrastinate - that is what I tell myself..."Just do it! and quit whining...LOL"

My other favorite is "Just Show Up" a trainer once told me that the hardest part about working out and losing weight is just showing up. If you show up to the gym and promise yourself only 15 minutes, chances are that 15 min will turn into 30 or 40...once your there it is cake...getting there is harder...

Okay after those great words I'm at a loss. Ummm words for today...Know that if you just take it one day at a time on your journey to health, eating right and exercising for today, you will eventually be the weight you want to be. Don't let it overwhelm you if you have a long way to go.

Remember: God loves you.

Also, don't get discouraged if you slipped a little, just pledge to do better tomorrow.

What are some Motivational Words for the Day. A thought or a few words that encourages hope or cheer. It can be whatever,like self talk or a single word or a link. Who knows, what could make someone's day.
We sometimes reach a dip in the road, get discouraged or weary. That will be a day we come here for encouragement from our "Squad's" recipe for smiles,and a brighter day.

I will start:
Today, I commit to enthusiasm about my goals because enthusiasm about self care is contagious! Having better times!

Okay, your turn.
