"HEALTH IS THE GREATEST POSSESION, CONTENTMENT THE GREATEST TREASURE, CONFIDENCE IS THE GREATEST FRIEND, AND SELF AWARENESS THE GREATEST JOY." Lao Tzu ~~ Find your greatest possession, treasure, joy and friend TODAY and EVERYDAY !!

I am starting off the new year with my New Years Intentions to get fit and healthier ~~ I am 50+ years young, and my family genetics are NOT good ones so i have decided it is time to try and offset as much of that as i can. I quit smoking in 2008, and now it is time to take off the weight (again) i gained after quitting, and the weight i have put on from bi-polar meds ~~ they make it WAYYYYYYYY easier to put on weight and much harder to take it off and keep it off! But i am determined to make a new start! And that means eating healthier to feel better, and getting physically fit to feel the best!! Today is a new day, everyday is a fresh start, and we must look forward and make EVERY day count and do EVERYTHING we can to make it the BEST day we can! No excuses! If i can quit smoking, then i can do this! John Q Adams said it well, "Courage and perseverance have magical talisman before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish intothin air!" I am STRONG!! I am CAPABLE!! I am DETERMINED!! I CAN DO EVERYTHING!! I WILL NOT GIVE UP AND I WILL NEVER GIVE IN!! It is all in our attitudes and perspectives. To change everything, change your mind. So i am changing my mindset to one of life! And i am going to live my life the best i can, in the healthiest and most fit way i can, and then i can play and run and jump and dance and laugh with abandon, because i am fit both physically and mentally! Life is what you make it! Make It The VERY BEST you can!! and that is all you can do!! My new motto is: Get Fit and Go Out There and LIVE!!

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

Today's inspiration is brought to you by Steve Maraboli:

“Rename your “To-Do” list to your “Opportunities” list. Each day is a treasure chest filled with limitless opportunities; take joy in checking many off your list.”


I hope you have the joy of checking many opportunities off your list this week! Have a fabulously fit, healthy and active week! emoticon emoticon
