SWEET SOUNDS OF SUCCESS

Hello friends! I'm starting my journey of changing from within. A new friend who is a kindred spirit turned me on to SparkPeople by giving me a copy of the book. I started reading it one week before I joined the website. I can truly say I'm excited and that is a special and welcome feeling. For almost two years I've been on a mostly downward spiral and I've been left feeling depleted.

Hello friends! I'm starting my journey of changing from within. A new friend who is a kindred spirit turned me on to SparkPeople by giving me a copy of the book. I started reading it one week before I joined the website. I can truly say I'm excited and that is a special and welcome feeling. For almost two years I've been on a mostly downward spiral and I've been left feeling depleted.

I'm a therapist and my job is super stressful. (So stressful I'm in the middle of a year or so where I'm not working in the field so I can complete my dissertation). I hope to become more present, healthy, and energetic for myself and my own sanity but also for the people I serve. I have two Masters degrees. One is in Social Work and the other is in Human Sexuality Education. Also, I'm working on a PhD and my dissertation is a HUGE priority. Some of the additional sparks I hope to gain are inspiration and momentum to research and write a meaningful dissertation.

I'm hoping to make some new friends, create motivation, lose weight, gain health, inspire others, turn off the negative self talk, and start hearing sweet sounds of success all around me.

Peace and harmony,
Sweetsounds11

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too.
It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy."

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog, and you're right -- I SHOULD look into altering that top. I look at "t-shirt makeovers" on Pinterest all the time but have never tried one myself. I should do it with one of my Bronco shirts -- it's not like I'm wearing them anyway. And you're right; if it DID work, it would be significantly cheaper than buying a new one!
