And even though you see this one a lot, it wouldn't be so visible if it weren't true: progress, not perfection!

On the desktop of my computer I have a folder with pictures from facebook that express positive thoughts. Here's a quote from A.A. Milne that I find motivational...

"Promise me you'll always remember: you're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

And here's one from Dr. Seuss that I enjoy...

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose."

And a good one from Vince Lombardi...

"We will chase perfection. While perfection can't be attained, we will catch excellence."

I'm sure I'll find some more if I take the time to look through the entire folder and when I've got the time to do that I'll share more of them. I hope the week starts out really well for all of you.




There was much rejoicing!

When I think of the word "wisdom" and anyone modern, Maya Angelou is the first person who comes to mind.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!

Peaceful be heaven, peaceful the earth, peaceful the broad space between. Peaceful for us be the running waters, peaceful the plants and herbs! Peaceful to us be the signs of the future, peaceful what is done and undone, peaceful to us be what is and what will be. May all to us be gracious!

Yesterday I stumbled across SP's motivational posters:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/quotes.
as
p


They're sprinkled around the site and turn up on daily emails, the Start page, etc.

By coincidence, BARBIE176 sent a good quote to me this morning, one I'd not seen before:

"The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order." --Henry Ward Beecher

And it occurred to me to ask, do YOU have a favorite quote? a message that inspires or motivates you, a "go-to" phrase that stokes your determination?

I have a small cache of phrases and mottos, many of which I have cycling through on my SP goal board - they are on my Start page, and as they roll through, I never fail to have at least one or two pertinent to that day. I wish there was a way to set them to cycle through on my SparkPage, but if there is, I can't find it.

One of my current favorites is ascribed to Michelangelo: "Ancora Imparo." "I am still learning." He supposedly said this when he was in his 80s! Works for me. I hope to keep on learning right to the last minute - and beyond.

How about you? What saying or quotation motivates you?
