Don't Over Do It

Starting out with big plans, notepads of resolutions, and gads of this that and the other thing you need to change - can and will send you right back to square one. Today, start by doing something that you didn't do yesterday. Tomorrow start out with what you did yesterday and add something else you'd like to accomplish. Take it one day at a time and pat yourself on the back for setting and meeting new challenges - YOU will and have changed your life for the better. Seek out inspiration!

It's your race

When I ran my first 5k, I struggled to keep up with the other runners. I wound up out of breath and extremely frustrated in the end.
My son (who is also a runner) noticed how defeated I felt even after accomplishing my goal and told me, "Mom, remember that it's your race. You and only you set the pace. When you cross the finish line it's about what you set out to do not how well you did in comparison to somebody else."
I learned a valuable lesson that day about maintaining focus.
