My motivation today has been my veggie garden. I got the tomatoes and strawberries planted. I can't wait. I love the garden to table meals.

Didn't want to walk today but was motivated by the knowledge that I would regret it if I didn't.

"We wouldn't care so much about what other people thought of us if we realised how little they do." This is so true. They probably wouldn't even remember our appearance but they would remember a friendly greeting and a sympathetic ear if necessary.

One of my old favourites is: ""A year from now you may wish you had started today."
-- Karen Lamb I have too often regretted procrastinating.

Second Share - My favorite Motivation Challenge.

So, this is "Pass It Forward" Week.
From: Lynn
A friend told me something really important a few years ago and I STILL repeat it to myself and others. It was:

"We wouldn't care so much about what other people thought of us if we realized how little they do."

You see, most people are worried about what THEY look like doing something to worry about what YOU look like. Since everyone is worried about themselves, that leaves no one left to look at you! What an empowering thought! If I could conduct myself as if no one was looking, what would that look like?

What I DO know is that I always feel good about ME when I am focused outside myself; when I'm 'sending it out there' and showing my concern and appreciation for others. Read: When it's NOT all about ME!

Funny how that works, right? Yet, encouraging others and trying always to be kind helps me stay less self-absorbed, less self-focused and broadens my world away from myself and the "me me me's".

So, this week, I'm going to ask you to step out of your world just a little in order to pass some of the good stuff forward. The last few times we've done this MC, it had some surprising results! Some team members even pledge to continue their efforts. Let's see how you feel about it!

The MC comes in two parts.
Part One: Give a Shout Out!
Go out onto the member Sparkpages and simply read the page or their blog and leave a comment. You may add your personal comment of encouragement, a shout out to a fellow team member, or 'dial up' a complete stranger! Make it interesting, make new friends, make it FUN!

You can either use the search feature in the SparkPages section to find someone with whom you might have something in common perhaps or simply read the latest blogs listed on the front page of the Mini-Challenge Team. Pass your courage, your strength, your 'tude on to others and see how it comes back to you ten-fold.

Part Two: Practice Random Acts of Compliments!
If you see someone who is maybe wearing something you think looks great on them or if you spot someone whose eyeglass frames look just terrific on them, shout them out a compliment. Don't be shy. It will be appreciated, I guarantee it!

It feeds our self-esteem to receive complient but it also bolsters our own confidence when we give without expecting in return. It's MAGIC!

So, for each part of the MC, complete it for at least 5 days of the 6 the MC is in effect. That means you'll be doing Part One at least 5 times and Part Two at least 5 times.

I promise you, you WILL feel good if you do this. :) Who's ready?

10 years from now.
How old are you? I am 64 years old.
Where do you live? I live at the beach.
With whom do you share a home? I don't share a house.
When you open your eyes in the morning, what do you see, hear, smell and feel? I smell the sea breeze and the local crops.
Who is there? How do you spend your time during the day? I spend my days volunteering with the robotics program with my grandchildren.
Where do you go and how do you get there? I am traveling all over the world by ship or plane
Who or what do you see along the way? I see all the beautiful gardens around the world that I get to hike through.
What do you do for a living? Hope to be teaching.
How do you move your body? What kind of exercise do you do? I am kayaking, hiking and biking.
What do you look like when you see yourself in the mirror? Long gray hair.
What brings you the most joy on this day? Playing with the grandchildren.

a la Jon Gabriel, i visualize myself at my ideal weight. i crave nutrient dense foods in reasonable quantities. i eat only when i am hungry and i stop when i've had enough.

i thought these things were supposed to be present tense, not future tense.

Keep your EYE ON THE BALL. What is the goal?Will this action get you closer?
slowly but surely.

zip ya' lip (please see pic)

"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right." Henry Ford

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

face your stuff. don't stuff your face.

be so busy improving yourself that you have no time to find fault with others
