For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Tuesday Thoughts

In Beth Donovan’s Spark People blog I came across just a few good thoughts for a Tuesday morning – just a few, but boy do they speak. Here they are:

1. Don’t take water pills to lose weight because you can’t pee out a pizza.

(Need I say more?)

2. Don’t put your thoughts into what might have been. Put your energy into what is possible.

How many of you are like me and take many trips down the “If I only” road? What a finite statement. After all, you only get so much energy to use everyday. Putting it into the possible seems to be the smartest choice. Close that garage door on the past and look ahead.

3. Never treat your body like a garbage disposal for leftovers.

Hating to waste anything, ever, I never thought about it like that before. Enlightening.

4. Don’t wait to be thin to act thin. Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

This really rings true with me. Whenever I have a goal or a “wannabe moment”, I always begin acting like I already achieved it. Act thin. I like it.

5. Get healthy like it’s your career.

Stop and think about that one for a moment. Imagine where you’d be.

And so, as another day goes by, there they are, 5 tiny Tuesday thoughts that pack a punch, and …I have written.
