The words of wisdom just keep on coming to me through email. I'd like to share this one with all of you:

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.� � Aristotle
What do you want to be? Practice doing that every day and you�ll eventually be there.


Just read this and found it helpful:
"If we have been selfish, unselfishness should atone; if we have wronged, we should right; if we have hurt, we should heal; if we have taken unjustly, we should restore; if we have been unfair, we should become just. Every possible reparation should be made. If confession of regret for the wrong and for our inability to set it right be the maximum of our power let us at least do that. A quick atonement sometimes almost effaces the memory. If foolish pride stands in our way we are aggravating the first mistake by a new one. Some people�s mistakes are never born singly�they come in litters"

Facing the Mistakes of Life from The Crown of Individuality 1909
William George Jordan

Motivational quotes:
�If you think twice before speaking once, you will speak twice the better for it." Wm. Penn

"Therefore, the main "enemy" of motivation is the tendency to see yourself as the hapless victim of forces (or urges) over which you have no control."

Getting slimmer and healthier by the minute...

THIS MAKES SENSE TO ME...
***Slump-Be-Gone***
"So, I'm yet to be the runner I aspire to be BUT I'm a better runner than I've ever been.

I don't have a flat tummy BUT I've discovered my collar bones.

I don't always order the healthiest thing on the menu BUT I no longer make my choices blind.

I'm not going to be on the cover of a magazine BUT I'm starting to think that maybe I look good in certain clothes.

I don't always roll out of bed and throw on my sneakers BUT my sneakers are not collecting dust.

I haven't developed an ego BUT I am proud!"

    Never play with the feelings of others, because you may "win" the game
    but the risk is that you will surely "lose" the person for a life time.
    ~ William Shakespeare ~

    Stay positive..some of your best days haven't happened yet.

    Stay positive...The things you're waiting and hoping for
    tend to arrive at the most unexpected time.

    Stay positive...and the ups will be more frequent than the downs.

    ~~~ emoticon ~~~Two Questions~~~ emoticon ~~~
    ~~~~Question 1
    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already,
    three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded,
    and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?
    ~~Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.
    ~~~~Question 2:
    It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
    Here are the facts about the three candidates.
    ~Candidate A:
    Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists.
    He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 Martinis a day.
    ~Candidate B:
    He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college,
    and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.
    Candidate C:
    He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke,
    drinks an occasional beer and never committed adultery.

    Which of these candidates would be your choice?
    Decide first... No peeking, then scroll down for the response.
    emoticon ---------------- emoticon -------------- emoticon




    emoticon ----------------- emoticon ------------- emoticon
    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevet
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
    Candidate C is Adolf Hitler. And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:
    If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.
    Pretty interesting isn't it?
    Makes a person think before judging someone.
    Remember.....:
    Amateurs... Built the ark.
    Professionals... Built the Titanic.
