If you Say it then MEAN IT!

When you say "Tomorrow I'm going to start exercising"   
do you always do what you say you are going to do?

"I always say I'm going to start but then I don't " she said to her friend....
and her friend  cried "oh, me too, I know exactly what you mean"

Are you a person of your word?
Can you keep a promise you make to yourself?

      I said that I would exercise 1 hr each day for 5 days!  
It was truly a struggle as I put off, put off, put off...
So there I was at 8 o'clock at night exercising!   
But I DID Finally DO IT! 

How did I make it happen, why did I not fail myself?

I believe it was because I not only made a  "Promise  to myself" 
but I reinforced "my want"   
 by repeating it in my head
"I WILL exercise 1 hr today"
over and over and over again throughout the day

I told myself this several times last night and repeated it many times  during the day...
until 8 pm when I said...  "that's enough... be a person of your word"

I choose to Honor myself enough to 


So, I shook hands with myself last night.   I honored myself by keeping my word to ME.  After all, I should respect myself.  I should honor myself.  I should take care of ME.
(I'm shoulding myself about it)

************************             Promises       ***************************

Promises are like babies:  easy to make, hard to deliver.  ~Author Unknown

We promise according to our hopes, and perform according to our fears~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld

Oaths are but words, and words but wind.  ~Samuel Butler

                            It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, 

but the man the oath.  ~Aeschylus

When a man takes an oath... he's holding his own self in his own hands.  Like water.  And if he opens his fingers then - he needn't hope to find himself again.  ~Robert Bolt

Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once.  
~Norman Vincent Peale

He loses his thanks who promises and delays.  ~Proverb

Eggs and oaths are easily broken.  ~Danish Proverb
Promises and pie crusts are made to be broken.  ~Jonathan Swift

An acre of performance is worth 
a whole world of promise.  ~William Dean Howells

                                                     For every promise, 
there is price to pay.  
~Jim Rohn

When a man repeats a promise again and again,

he means to fail you.  ~Proverb

Oh how we deceive ourselves ..........  
       It is 
Me, Myself and
not being in agreement. 

Me:  Physical Self
Myself:  Mental Self
I:  Spiritual Self

I will not let
myself down because 
it is best for me
Lest we forget 
we are

Attack your world by exercising, feeding and nurturing Daily!

BALANCE yourself by Letting Go  and Reaching to HIM for Healing, Health and Wellness he will take you hand and give you Grace so you can Be BALANCED

 Philipians 3:12-14

 12-14I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back!

Ciao and Salute!  to Your Health and Wellness
