Eyes On The Prize
Saturday, January 23, 2021
Keep your eyes on the Prize. Even reaching the little prizes can be an encouragement.
Today it happened! I reached Level 26 in SparkPeople Land! This was never my ultimate goal, but it represents years of consistent growth and balance. It represents meeting many challenges and reading a multitude of articles on healthy living. Do you know how many healthy recipes I've made for my family because of those 3 points I'd gain? Lots. I've done a few extra push-ups and walked a few extra steps many days for those extra Spark Points, and I'm healthier because of it.
Yesterday was a tough day. I had to make some tough decisions about having some skin cancer (basal carcinoma) removed from my nose. I was prepared to have it removed in the office, but it will be a bigger procedure than expected, and I'll have it removed in the hospital.
Today's little victory is a nice way to raise my spirits and make the load that you carry seem a little lighter.
Never underestimate these small victories! They can keep you moving forward.
