Day 82 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Don’t Quit

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

Day 82 - 90

 

How are you doing on your 1% Change?  Are you pressing on even when you feel like quitting?

I memorized this quote during my high school basketball season.  It EnCoUrAgEs me to this day – reminding me not to quit.

 Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you WaNt To SmiLe, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he StUcK It OuT;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you MuSt NoT QuiT.
– Edgar A. Guest

Day 52 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Funkville

Inaction breeds doubt and fear.  Action breeds confidence and courage.  If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it.  Go out and get busy.

Day 52 - 90

Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to be humming along just fine when {{BAMB!}} out of the blue you get hijacked by those obnoxious intruders also known as cruddy feelings?

Well, that describes my day today.  Talk about being blind-sided.  Just a few hours earlier I had a convo with Lara that had fired us both up as we talked about the future of Peace with Food and plans for the future.

Life was great!

Then came ThE HiJaCk.

I really don’t know what brought it on, but instantly I was transported to Funkville.  Ever been there?  I was overcome with ambivalent, vague, and LoUsY FeeLiNgS.

Is this really happening?  Just hours ago I was on a high and now I am feeling pretty low – no energy, no motivation, no spark whatsoever.

So I did the only thing I knew to do.  SaiD a PrAyEr and then RiPpEd It LiKe a BaNd-AiD.  Yes, I  got to work. There was no way I was going to let the Funk get the best of me.

And true to form, after awhile I realized that those crazy intruders were gone.  I was living life in color again.

Next time you encounter the hijack, why not give this system a try?  Or come up with your own.  Just find that something that helps you ExiT OuT Of FuNkViLLe.

Your Robynn
