I'm doing it. Day by day, hour by hour, sometimes, minute by minute. One healthy choice after another, all with moderation, I am happy to have additional accountability for the road ahead.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    Thank you! For my goodie...and nope, I like clowns!........and your awesome note. You sparked the joy in my weary spirit today. My foot feels a bit better today but walking is a real struggle and painful and since I can't play hooky from work (or life).....I will be thankful.....SO thankful.....that it's the slow time of the month at work and I am inside with the AC....hooya! Blessings to you today and throughout the summer challenge and beyond!
