I have started some new goals today. I decided that I am going to have to set small little goals, because up until this point...I haven't accomplished my other ...much bigger goals. I thought when I started Physical Therapy that I would be able to do all the exercises every day. But instead I am so wiped out from the PT and all the changes that we are requiring from my body, that I am not accomplishing much.
So today, I have started by telling myself that I can change, even though the progress may be very slow and small. Thanks to my sweet family, they are encouraging me and once again... I begin again!
It is amazing to me how being in a lot of pain, can alter my thoughts ( and not for the better ). With that in mind, I will not share with you much more than this wonderful quote that my daughter sent to me today. There is a lot in it. Read it more than once and enjoy the neat message that is in there, it's about what success really means. Good night dear friends!
"To LAUGH often and much, to WIN the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to EARN the appreciation of honest critics and ENDURE the betrayal of false friends, to APPRECIATE beauty, to FIND the best in others, to LEAVE the world a bit BETTER, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch...to know even ONE LIFE has breathed EASIER because YOU have LIVED. This is to have SUCCEEDED!"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"To reach a port, we must sail—Sail, not tie at anchor—Sail, not drift."
"There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something."
