DAY 429 Another Check-Up from the Neck-Up


Feel like belly-aching?
Wanna complain?
Tempted to whine "I can't" ?

Watch this 23 year old young man on China's Got Talent. It will warm your heart, and change your attitude... I know it did mine!

Today's Peek at the Past (I enjoyed again the video I posted on this day of little Connie Talbot singing Over the Rainbow!)

From Day 68, October 16, 2009:

"Some people wait 
for the future to happen. 
Others create their futures."
 I didn't get to be 460 pounds by having all my ducks in a row... I needed to learn some willing to go through the "uncomfortableness" of change.

And make no mistake, change IS uncomfortable at times. But it is worth it. 

If the price I have to pay is to feel uncomfortable in order to have my dreams come true...isn't that a good trade-off??! Isn't that worth it??!

The pain is temporary...but the pay-off--the New Me--will be for a lifetime. Our dreams really can come true.

From Dr Phil's book: "It's about changing yourself from the inside out out."

My verse for today: "Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the tambourine, play the melodious harp and lyre."

My quote for today: "You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."  --Winnie the Pooh

Enjoy the Journey,

Thanks for the beautiful video. I feel grateful for my life today. I even feel grateful for this hunger.

Beyond words.

Videos like that always make me ashamed for complaining about things in my life that are within my power to change.

Thanks for the reminder. :)

Loretta, That was awe inspiring. So much for the chronically ill (or in this case, impaired) not being able to enjoy life. !!!

Like you often say, "it's our choice." I choose life.

well, that made me cry.
I can die now, or live a wonderful life.

What an awesome post. It's so easy to get caught up in our own stuff. We'll always find someone who has it much worse. We need to focus more on the positive in life instead of dwelling on the negative.
Thank you for this.

Great video and post.

I want to hire you!!

You're always on the button, sharing the perfect equation for change. The "new you" will ALWAYS be uncomfortable, and the short term pain will ALWAYS be there.

Will we learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable? When the answer becomes "yes," change is inevitable!!
