Have you ever heard someone quote a line of widsom that stays with you for ages? I’ve heard one this week which has really got me thinking. It was from Paddy Cunningham (who was a contestant on Biggest Loser UK 2011) who I follow over on Facebook and he said this…

“No more excuses, no more self pity…if you want something to change, make it happen! YOU control your life, don’t observe life, LIVE it!”

How many times have you made an excuse for something that didn’t go your way? Or felt sorry for yourself because life’s dealt you a tough hand? I know I’ve done this many a time and where has it got me? It doesn’t help at all! If you want to change something, you’re the only one who is going to be able to do it, no matter how much support you have. I’m so glad I made the right choice back in January to get on the diet wagon and get into exercise. At first it was hard and I probably didn’t enjoy it as much as I said I did, but now I can, hand on heart say I really do.

This doesn’t just apply to my health, I’ve also being thinking about other stuff too like my career, my hobbies and my family. I guess a lot of it comes down to the fact that time is flying by and I’m going to be hitting a big birthday milestone next year and I don’t want to get there thinking I’ve wasted time. I guess that’s my inspiration to get out there and do things. Don’t get me wrong I’m being realistic as I’ll never be able to walk to the North Pole or buy a size 10 dress but being the sensible MrsShilts I am, there are things I want to do and do before it’s too late..Life is no rehearsal {sig}
