Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Stop living life for what’s around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street.

SparkPeople's Comments

When we become too goal centered it becomes easy to completely live in our vision of where we will be in the future without noticing the improvements that we have made in the present. The road to self-change is a long trip, and it is very important to realize what we are shooting for, but we need to make sure that we keep our head in the present so that we can begin enjoying the progress we’ve made to date. If your goal is to loose 40 pounds, then instead of waiting to lose 40 pounds to celebrate, enjoy the small victories and take advantage of your improved health now. This will also serve as motivation to continue striving for our aspirations. If we set ambitious goals then we need to enjoy the road to accomplishing those goals, because life might pass you buy if you are always planning for tomorrow without ever enjoying today.

To me, this is also a reminder to be thankful for what we have today.

Here's to enjoying every step of the journey. For example, I had a great run this morning and got to watch two fun shows while I did it! It gave me great energy for the day!

Love it - it's all too easy to live our lives anticipating what might or might not happen in the future, and regretting what happened in the past. I've learned to live each day as it comes and I'm much happier.

Very well said. There is a book called "The Present" which is a reminder that the present time is a present or gift that we should enjoy every day!
Thanks for the reminder.

Isn't it funny how sometimes we see the right message at exactly the right time. This couldn't have come at a better time for me! Great thoughts!
