Finding My Joy!!

For the last several years I have been trying to just get happy! I did not realize until the other day when I was watching Oprah doing an interview that I really should be finding my joy. The definition of joy is "the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires" Do I know what possessing what I desire means to me, gosh no, but in 2013, I intend to try to find out...

I love and adore your feedback on my blogs, thank you!
I totally agree with you about walking and if I were to tell the truth, I like it better too. My workout friend has a hard time keeping up with my walking pace as I do her sprinting pace.

I have been toying with walking a half marathon too! I even printed a schedule on how to train for one. If only we lived closer we could do it together.

I just met up with a friend of mine who is running 10 half's in 2013 and she really supported the idea of me walking a half. I needed to hear that from a "runner" because it gave me a boost. She walked one with her Mr last year ... a great supporter she is. She also figures if I can participate in a 2.5 hr Zumbathon I can totally do a walking half.

I guess I need to figure out what I really want.

Thanks so much for your kind note. I am very happy that the Body Pledge is striking a chord with so many here on Spark, and know that it will find it's way out into the world to help others who are in need of learning to love themselves.

I hope that you, and anyone else you chose to share it with will feel free to adapt it, just as I did, as you need to for your own personal growth. Itís time we free ourselves to become who we wish to be and so much more, and that you'll stop by to follow the Loving yourself series as it continues.

Warmest regards,
Sharon
