WELCOME to Sparks and OO GINA Girl!
You're no longer alone!
You’ve most definitely come to the right place!
You’re about to make many a new friend!
All of whom are also turning their lives around and will be there to support, and
motivate! I wish you nothing but the best of success! So glad you have joined us!
1.If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily...but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.

You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG. Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year.

The start of something new brings the hope of something great. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE There is only one you. And you will pass this way only once. Do it right.


1. Your presence is a present to the world
2. You're unique and one of a kind
3. Your life can be what you want it to be
4. Take the days just one at a time
5. Count your blessings, not your troubles
6. You'll make it through with whatever comes along
7. Within you are so many answers
8. Understand, have courage, be strong
9. Don't put limits on yourself
10. So many dreams are waiting to be realized
11. Decisions are too important to leave to chance
12. Reach for your peak, your goal, your prize
13. Nothing wastes more energy than worrying
14. The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets
15. Don't take things too seriously
16. Live a life of serenity
17. Not a life of regrets
18. Remember that a little love goes a long way
19. Remember that a lot goes for ever
20. Remember that friendship is a wise investment
21. Life's treasures are people together
22. Realize that it's never too late Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way
23. Have health, hope and happiness
24. Take the time to wish upon a star
And don't ever forget for even a day how very special you are.

Hello ! I'm thrilled !! Warm welcomes to the Overcoming Obstacles family!" ("O.O." for short lol) (A place where people share successes, common goals and LOVE) I can recommend reading some of the past posts, to become familiar . Then, maybe post what ever you feel comfortable with.. There are quite a few different topics listed,as you will see.. like "jokes" or "motivation", "wheres' everyone from", "weigh in room" etc..
I hope you will come and introduce yourself in the "disabilities group forum" topic, and reply to any of the ones already created, & if you'd like..create a topic you may find helpful. There are many little challenges posted too, to give us a little "spark". The "disabilities group forum" (marked as "sticky topic" is the main discussion area, even though many of the team doesn't have a disability, and some do, it is for everyone (doesn't matter where we are from, what our faith is, etc.) to congregate in, and know they are NOT alone.
I really look forward to reading your posts & knowing you.. :o)

(You'll see a BUNCH of FUN on my sparkpage..hope you'll come take a peek)
~ Challenges are now listed at the bottom of my sparkpage, to make it easier to find the challenges that may suit your needs~

I want you to know, too.. I was a councellor before I ended up in my wheelchair, and if you ever want prayers, or vent, chat, laugh, be motivated or want insight in ANY way at all.. I hope you will feel free and confident to contact me at any time..... sparkmail is an awesome feature, & I promise I am confidential and will either make you laugh, or make you feel good about being YOU :o)

My prayer is this: Overcoming Obstacles becomes a meeting place for every sparkpeople.com member to congregate in. ( and if time or other groups are " an obstacle" then even if it's to come and say hello, or share a smile "O.O." should be that place!.)

I created this forum out of love, and that's what you will find.." angels who carry one another to our goals."
Love, Prayers, and TICKLES,
CAROL.

P.S..
CHRIS (aka SPARKGUY) is an absolutely amazing person, and has created this wonderful site to share with the world..yet many people are still missing out.
{PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO INVITE IN EVERYONE :o)}

Howdy, I finally had time to come thank you for your comment on my sparkpage LOL.. sorry.. I get so busy with work.. (both my wife Carol and I are in wheelchairs. but we both make wonderful useful products out of wood..she carves precious wooden jewerly, and I am better at building bird house kits for children, and really neet spoon racks for collectors & we're working on a course in web design presently so we can get one up and running LOL)..but.. firstly.. involved with SP and getting jokes together for the Jokes topic in OVERCOMING OBSTACLES ("O.O." for short)..forum, just to make sure we're all laughing on this journey together, I sometimes think "cool, I got a comment from a sparkfriend" I'll get it right after I do this..then "this" comes along..and oops..something else comes up LOL.. well.. better late then never at all right? lol.. well, at least you know where to find me.. (under "JOKES FOR OUR FAMILY") LOL

I'm thrilled you are part of "O.O".. my wish is for "O.O." to become a common meeting place for every person here on sparkpeople some day. ( that everyone on sparkpeople has a place to meet.(.wether they attend to other groups, that's always okay)..but I feel it is important that there is a place like that.. take care, and I look forward to reading your posts, even though I don't respond too much, is cuz I'm not really quick at typing or spelling (being French & all).. but doesn't mean I do not read them, and consider them.

Jack
