A Sip of Bold Action

Today's little spark of inspiration comes from a milk carton. This morning as I took the chocolate Silk soymilk out of the fridge, I noted the advice on the side: "Take A Sip Forward," a sentence that, by the way, is trademarked.

The idea is that drinking soy milk is "one small step toward living at your best." The carton also told me to laugh, eat chocolate, and get exercise. But what struck me is the idea of progress measured in sips.

I've heard it said to people wanting to lose weight that "everything you put in your mouth counts."

The reverse of that is that each small good thing that any of us do, in any area of life,counts. Small actions that are creative, generous, courageous, add up and ripple outward.

Hello Peggy,
I looked through your website and it attracted my attention by the varieties of useful and interesting information. I have good credit card websites where everybody can find useful information about finance and money especially now at the time of financial downturn. They contain much useful information for the readers. There's a fine set of articles that reveal all pros and cons of credit cards, give tips how to reduce credit card debt and establish good credit.

If it agrees with your policy, I would like to place some links on your site.

Please, let me know if you are willing to work with me and what are the rates you offer.
If you are interested in it I will send you some more details about my websites.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Jess Anderson
