One Step More
A hill is not too hard to climb taken one step at a time.
One step is not too much to take, one try is not too much to make.
One step, one try, one song, one smile, will shortly stretch into a mile.
and everything worthwhile was done by small steps taken one by one.
To reach the goal you started for, take one step more, take one step more. James Dillet Freeman

I find the rewards of today in letting go of the regrets of the past. Anything I have done in the past no longer has a hold o me. I am living in this present moment and reaping the rewards of living for today.

Although I cannot see into the future, I know that the choices I make today may affect my health and well-being in the next few days or even years from now. So I rely on the wisdom of God to be the source for my decisions.

My goals for this year:

1. To be active on teams and with team mates
2. Make/Check schedule each day and prioritize time/activity
3. Take me time
4. Continue to keep journals (prayer and weight/food/exercise).

I appreciate all the people on my teams and realize how much support they give me. Between them and my hubby who is very supportive I feel I am very blessed.

    Needed to remind myself to remember these quotes so sharing them with special friends
    Put yourself at the top of your to-do list
    Every single day and the rest will fall into place.

    The secret is to never lose sight of the simple, everyday miracles in life.” Beau Taplin

    This sounds sparky to me we need to remember we are not on a diet but leaning how to eat healthy
    Food is celebratory. People who don't cook don't know how much fun they're missing.
