Quotation Inspiration

We’re supposed to pick just one, but I picked a few 🙂

So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health. — A.J. Reb Materi

Spend some time exercising. Get up off the couch more often. Eat healthy food and drink healthy drink. Spend time with people whose company you enjoy. Get enough sleep. Take vacations.

If you put it all off until later, later may not be available.

I hear people my age (30s) complaining that they’re old when working on a physical task. Really? I’m not buying it. Not accepting it from the 40-somethings or 50-somethings, either. You’re not old — you just aren’t taking care of your body. You can do that for a while before it catches up to you. Why wait until it catches up to you before you do something?

Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.
— Janis Joplin

Your body, your mind, your spirit. Be true to yourself. Take care of yourself. You are indeed all you’ve got. Everything else comes and goes.

It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little.

I don’t know who this should be attributed to, but it applies to everything. Don’t have time to exercise an hour a day? Do 15 minutes. Don’t want to revamp your entire set of eating habits? Make one small adjustment. Can’t save the world? Work on just your little corner. You can recycle. You can use reusable items instead of disposable (bags, food containers, water bottles, diapers, napkins, cutlery, etc.) This quote goes hand in hand with one that I don’t remember word for word, but the gist was that anyone who believes they are too small to make a difference has never been in bed with a mosquito.

And then, one more came through my RSS from this blog post:

“Everything will be alright” is not the same as “everything will stay the same.”

Life changes. Your body changes. Your needs change. Your family changes. Your friends change. Your values change. Your priorities change. Let them change. Make them change. Accept them changing. Everything will be alright.

    I LOVE the last quote and REALLY LOVE your response! So true, my friend.

    • Thanks 🙂 I was going through a bit of the backlog of posts in my RSS this morning. When I saw that, I was glad this post hadn’t gone live yet. I really liked it, too.
