Lessons Learned in Seven SP Years

On 1/27/2008, I joined the Spark family and now 7 years later, I am still here and as active as ever. So what have I learned? Here is the short list:

* Before snacking, H.A.L.T. - Am I Hurting? Angry? Lonely? Tired/Thirsty?
* By sharing what I have learned, I help myself, as well as, others
* It is not selfish to take time for me
* Exercise can be fun (did I really say that?!?!?!? LOL)
* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success

* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success
* Seeking help/support is not a weakness but a sign of maturity
* Sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is to say NO
* Each day needs to have some quiet time built in
* Do not dwell on mistakes, but learn from them and move on
* Setbacks are NOT a excuse to give up, but a reason to begin anew
* It is important to stay connected with my SPals and SP teams

Thank you for your comment on my blog "The Rock". I loved the story for the same reason you like it. When I find myself berating myself for not being perfect in my ability to "move the boulder" I my life, of turning to sweets for solace, that the Lord is strengthening my spiritual muscles. Love you and pray you had a great day.
Love, Charlene

What a great day! Worked outside in a wood pile. We had a tree cut down. Lots of work picking up branches and a lot left to cut and stack for winter. I love this kind of work with my hubby. Hope your day was great too!

Hello darling girl. Just thought I would stop by your page to tell you I love you and you are an amazing friend. Hang in there, not by the skin of your teeth or you might fall, but by you heart muscles the Lord strengthens in you to do your best.
