This Sparked Me!

Today is my birthday and that makes it a perfect day to reflect. We need to take the time to thoughtfully look at our own condition on a regular basis. This isn't a time to chastise ourselves, but a time to take note of everything that we are doing right and everything that we are doing better. there is nothing more motivating than success--and we are all doing some things right. As is true with any learning, we start where we are at and we scaffold new learning and achievements. Celebrate!

MORE INFORMATION:
Look at what you are eating and drinking. Look at any changes in activity and fitness. Look at your habits and hobbies. Look at your moods and attitudes. Look at your health. Look at your clothing. Look at what has become new and improved habits. Oh yeah, you can look at the scale too. emoticon

    happy birthday to you! Nice post. I'm always trying to work on ways to improve and challenge myself to find better ways to act, and to improve ways of accomplishing tasks from my wheelchair that are otherwise difficult. I analyze these things for a positive outcome and very often I find what I need. Faith and perseverence are great working partners.

    We all do more that is good, right, helpful, on track than we don't--but we always seem to notice the "bad, wrong, destructive, off track" things that we do. I am not sure why most people are "wired" emoticon You are doing it emoticon You are doing it emoticon

Be good to yourself--in word, thought and deed. You deserve so much more.
