Just moved out to the countryside of Kentucky. Thought about a song I hadn't heard in a long time. Fits me again right now...

"Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming
Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted
I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered"

Big Country - lyrics to "In A Big Country"


ďA mighty flame followeth a tiny spark" -- Dante Alighieri

Thoughts become things. Losing 150 pounds started with this simple little phrase: "No More."

Love that quote too. I will try to get another pic up here soon. Work has been something fierce this week. Sigh.

I loved the quote for the day:

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is". Albert Einstein

Enjoy a miracle today!

This is awesome! Keep motivating us! It is true, I'm changing my life, not going on a diet.

This is so true! You can PLAN for a special treat, like if you are going to a birthday party, you can plan to have a small piece of birthday cake. And making sure it is a choice not a cheat makes sure you do not feel guilty later for eating that piece of cake, right?

So, this was part of my Spark Coach stuff awhile back and I really enjoyed it. You can do this weekly or daily if you like. But, I thought it would be fun to go out and find a picture and/or quote that motivates you and post it. So this is my first one. I might do more than one a week. Sometimes I print them and stick them on my monitor or mirror in the bathroom too. So, what helps motivate you???
