Your Fat Quarter

by Kris Pitcher

Beautifully hand made by Diane Fink aka. Nana
"A fat quarter is not a body part." Read the license plate cover of a car owner who obviously has a great sense of humor. Laughing, I did a double take and read it aloud to my husband as we walked into the grocery store.

A fat quarter is a quilter's measurement of fabric, it's like a baker's dozen, a little generous. "You'll have to tell Nana." He said. You see, my mother is an amazing quilter, with a clever sense of humor.

It got me thinking about approaching ourselves and our journey with health and fitness with some gratitude. We live in a serious world, with serious problems. Sometimes it's difficult to see the forest through the trees where our own journey is concerned. Are we celebrating the tiny steps? Have you thought about the amount of change you have accepted in your life? Is it time to take a step back and look from a 30,000 foot view to see what you're doing right rather than focusing on what you might have messed up this week?

This is an excellent time to take stock of your life's fat quarter - what are you thankful for, grateful for, proud of? What things have you worked hard for that you should smile and take a little credit for? What impact are you having in your life and in the lives of people around you? In my mind, I have a lot to be thankful for, grateful for and proud of. My life's fat quarter is rich, colorful and ready to become part of a much larger work of art.
