Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Changing your lifestyle may be uncomfortable at times, but remember the end result: a happier, healthier, fitter you. A year from now, do you want to be in the same place, or do you want to be able to look back on how far you've come?

Very true. This very effectively sums up what eventually got me to go back to school. Going was terrifying, but it got to a point where not going was even more so.

I knew that God was with me at age three, but I never realized until years later that He moved me also. This inspiration page is a testament to how I still feel on some days, many fewer than last month.

Sometimes the fear of trying, is what stops us from becomming who we really are!

Risk taking is so hard, but so necessary for human growth!

Another one of my favorite quotes is
"Blossom where you are planted"
Having had to move a few times have been determined not to stay in the bud in my new surroundings so spread my wings and bloomed to a much happier life
One day at a time

Such a true statement. We grow and mature as we take our fitness journey. :)
