The first day of the rest of your life.

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I always thought that saying was cheesy. And I believe each day is a new day and part of the rest of my life no matter how long that life lasts. But today with it's sunshine and warm weather, my first day without internet in my home, does feel like the first day - not necessarily of the rest of my life - but perhaps of the beginning of something good. That's not to say it's an easy 'something', but a more responsible something. (And I didn't think I could ever be more responsible-perhaps I will learn how to be reponsible in a new way.) I got a card for my birthday with a quote by e.e. cummings that said (and I'm paraphrasing) 'It takes courage to grow up and become the person you were meant to be'. Then I got a fortune cookie that said the same thing. I think the Universe is trying to tell me something. :) So...let's see what the Universe means by becoming the person I was meant to be. I have the feeling it will be an adventure.

    You can do it . Enjoy this blog post Spit the seeds out
    “Don’t let the seeds keep you from enjoying the watermelon”(Lillie in the movie Made for Each Other) Friends, we are on a journey to have a better quality of life by eating healthier and exercising. There will be days that we will want to eat over our calorie limit. There will be days that we will not want to exercise. These are seeds that we have to spit out. So today, spit out the seeds and do what you need to do to have a better life. Spit the seeds out. ‘The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart’ (Lk 6:45 NIV).
