This Sparked Me!

It is so easy to live with an "All or Nothing" mentality... BUT, it will discourage and defeat you!! Take one day at a time... if you mess up, don't fall apart... Jump back in and KEEP GOING!! We CAN do it!! WoooHooo....

    I struggled with the ALL OR NOTHING mentality my whole life and as a result have missed out on so many accomplishments. I am so hard on myself and try to be MISS PERFECT! But i decided that 2011 was going to be different. I am forgiving person, but I never seemed to want to forgive myself for messing up. This year when I mess up, I'm going to forgive myself and start again, immediately if not sooner!
