Motivation

Spending time at SparkPeople.com made me realize that I am not the only one who has troubles with motivation. Since I’m exploiting my ups and downs, I figured, why not what motivates me as well? To share could help inspire another (which is the reason why I read a ton of blogs in the first place!.

Some quotes that keep me going:

“Love is letting go of fear.” – Gerald Jampolsky (I just realized that this quote can apply towards loving ourselves also… WOW!)

“Self-trust is the first secret of success.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” – Mahatma Ghandi (“Forgive” yourself for splurging on that slice of chocolate cake… eye opener!)

“Life only demands from you the strength you possess.” – Dag Hammarskjold

“All things pass… Patience attains all it strives for.” – Mother Teresa

“Speak little, do much.” – Benjamin Franklin

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up.” – Vince Lombardi

“Live as if you like yourself, and it may happen.” – Marge Piercy (LOVE your body… a [hard] lesson I’m learning right now)

“The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater their power to harm us.” – Voltaire

“Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.” – Auguste Rodin
