Motivational Quote - “Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that?  We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.”

SparkPeople's Comments

We all come across obstacles, some anticipated and some unexpected. Every last one of us has faced some sort of difficulty in our lives. How did you approach this? Did you avoid it, allowing the problem to get bigger? Or did you go at it with full force, ready to conquer it? Perhaps once in a while an obstacle will disappear on its own, but don’t count on it. Usually, it’s going to come down to you to make it happen. But with hard work and the right attitude, you have everything you need to reach those goals. Try and look forward to the next time a roadblock comes your way; instead of an obstacle, think of it as a challenge. Then get after it!

Not all obstacles can be resolved. Some just have to be lived with..I guess the trick is knowing when to step over them or around them or to just give a heavy sigh and live with them.. and do your best day to day living with what you can't change...In my life this isn't related to diet or exercise. When dealing with adversity diet and exercise are lovely things I do have control over and the ability to change.

remember each day is a gift, we need to do our best and the other quote I like is
This to shall pass. troubles come, but you can handle them. We each have to remember that it is truly up to us, every day brings a chance to meet goals and challenges.

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. There are days when my pain level is very high. i think of this as a challenge and not a roadblock. I instittute exercise in my day everyday. Just moving each day will bring me closer to my goal. Thanks for the quote......
