Be Thankful.

Thursday, November 22, 2012



Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

~ Author Unknown ~

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Change . . .

Tuesday, November 20, 2012



Why is it that we don't like change? I know for me, it's so easy to get into a "groove" (the nice word for "rut") & be comfortable or safe. Being comfortable is familiar. Being safe is familiar, but can you grow as a person when you're comfortable and safe? Hmmmm. I'm not so sure that I can. Maybe you can, but I cannot.

So that means I need to get out of my comfort zone a bit. Ouch! Change! Ouch!



I am beginning to see that if I get out of my comfort zone & get into the unknown a little bit more, I am a better person. I can learn new things -- try new kinds of exercise that I've never tried before -- try new foods (healthier foods) that I've never tried before.

These kinds of changes are good changes! So as my outside is changing from my healthy habits, my insides are changing, too -- for the better.

Change doesn't have to be scary. Some changes are so good for us. Think of what you could become by implementing positive changes in your life.



Contemplate these things as you continue on your journey. We are in this together, so even though we may not be comfortable getting out of our comfort zone, we can lean on one another for support as we do.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    They say "change is as good as a holiday"... I think I would prefer the holiday!

But we want to see change in ourselves... less inches, less pounds, more energy, better health.... so of course we need to make changes in our actions and our attitudes.

The holiday still sounds good though!
