So for today, something light: some quotes. I have always loved collecting them, and they're especially important to me now on my weight loss journey. They make me think, they pick me up, they push me harder, they motivate me to keep going and do more than I ever dreamed possible. Here are a few of my favorites:
"But it's much too late," you say, "for doing this now. You should have done it then." Well, it just goes to show how wrong you can be, and how you really should know that it's never too late to get up and go.What about you? What's your favorite inspirational/motivational quote?
The Cure, "Doing the Unstuck"
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
If you had such a dream, would you get up and do the things you believe in?
Belle and Sebastian, "I Could Be Dreaming"
We must be willing to get rid of the life we planned, so we can have the life that's waiting for us.
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Being a desired size is simply a perk of an already fulfilling life.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.
No dress rehearsal - this is our lives.
The Tragically Hip, "Ahead By a Century"
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things.
We absolutely have the power to start over, at any moment, to take a deep breath and create a world, a life, a situation that we really believe in. It's an incredible connection to the universe around us, and I seriously think it might be the best, most beautiful ability we have.
We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
We are continually faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems.
John W. Gardner
Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.
I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
