This is the first day
Tuesday, January 10, 2012
If we quit, we can't go on, and we can't begin again. If we face each day with an attitude of gratitude, and forgive our previous blunders, we can have this day to be the first day of the rest of our lives. We can have lots of first days, but let's make them count. Push on so we can get by having more than just the first day. Let's make it a streak. Let's make it work. Let's make it happen. I'm in, how about you? The old comment - winners never quit, and quitters never win. We have to be in the game to win, to succeed, to make it. Even if we have to do it at a snail's pace.
I was thinking of how I haven't managed to make a full 10 minute physical therapy daily stretch, only 6-7 minutes, and it takes its toll on me. Then I remembered Fall 2009, and that is what I began with. If I could do my 6 minutes of daily stretches I was on the way, and I really was. Doing SOMETHING, is way better than doing nothing. Come on, you can do it. I can do it. We CAN do it.
I did it before, I can do it again. I started my streak of water, and food logging again. See, I AM making it happen. And I restarted my vitamins.
