Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - A great obstacle to happiness is expecting too much happiness.

SparkPeople's Comments

Appreciate your life for what it is, without any more thought to what it is not. Remember that happiness is a state of mind, and not a destination that can ever be reached. The only thing that can “make” you happy is yourself. Accept our best wishes for the holiday and please pass them along to your friends and family.

Someone once told me-- All we should expect is to be "reasonably happy"---
If I count my blessings, this is more than a true statement......

I have to say that this thought couldn't have come to me at a better time. I'm always so worry of reaching something in the future that I tend to forget to be happy along the way.

Expect nothing - just be pleasantly surprised.

Don't have expectations as they set you up for disappointment. Just be pleasantly surprised.

I miss them in the old format!!!

We are all responsible for our own happiness
So grab all the happiness whenever you can wherever you can

So glad to see some others feel like I do about the missing newsletter! I used it to always journal and had a 2-year streak going on my journal! Now I sometimes get "distracted" by the list of blogs in the left column of the Best of Spark and miss the quote! Hope someone with SP will read these comments!

good message but really miss the healthy Reflections email. Asked where/why it is no longer sent did not get a reply. Looks like I'm not the only one who really valued this.
Please reconsider having it again.

I would LOVE to save this one, but I'm not going the cut/paste route suggested. I REALLY MISS THE HEALTHY REFLECTIONS email.

I agree, although all of us are searching for happiness and contentment, sometimes we should assess what we have. We have a lot more going for us than we ourselves credit for
