Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day.

We often think of our weight loss goals when we read things like this. Maybe we let our lives revolve around this too much?
Each day can be one where we have many things we want out of life. Better relationships? Could you leave encouraging notes somewhere where people in your family will find them and can read them at work or at school maybe?
Have you been putting off beginning an exercise program? Could you just walk around the block or up and down the road one time as a start? Do you have a piece of exercise equipment that you could use for maybe 15 minutes?
A friend of mine said for Christmas each year she buys a calendar for each of her three daughters. On that calendar she writes in the birthdays of everyone in the family, anniversaries, etc., and gives one to each daughter. There are printable calendar pages on the internet. I am going to do that too and add a directory of addresses and email addresses. This will be an inexpensive Christmas gift that will mean a lot, be kept for future reference, and cost very little. I gave a sheet to be filled out for each household in the family with this information to be filled in for me. I think on the Wal-Mart site pages with family pictures can be done but am not sure. These would be great gifts for family members that live far away.
I guess we have to decide what we want in life before we can begin it. It has to be more specific than things like "be happy" or "be rich". Scroll down - my pasting didn't work like I wanted and I couldn't delete the blank space :-(
