It's never too late...

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Today I am thankful for the truth of this statement. In talking to a dear friend recently, I commented that I am a "late bloomer" because it's taken me until this point in my life to commit to reaching healthy goals for myself. She kindly reminded me that it is never too late to start, or to start over. How true, and how very encouraging! I've come to believe that one of the secrets of reaching healthy goals is to never give up.

So for today, I'm trusting in the process. Just one day at a time. One meal at a time. Persistence... throughout 2011.

I read an outstanding quote on this issue from Calvin Coolidge (30th President of the United States of America), but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post it here... does anyone know if a quote from a former US President is allowed on SP blogs???

Make it a healthy day my SP friends!

PS, since I found out that quotes are allowed, here goes...

"Press on. Nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are the overwhelming power." ~Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States of America
