"Somewhere in the middle" is a response that Jonah gives to his dad, Sam, in the movie Sleepless in Seattle. It's a reference to the middle states, and living in the middle states is a great thing. I used to live "somewhere in the middle."
The middle of the Oreo is the cream. I like the cream!
The middle of a yo-yo is the string! I feel like I'm hanging from a string these days, and just floating on a breeze.
The last time I struggled like this, I quit. When I started to struggle, I completely gave up and left Spark for a LONG time. I gained almost everything I had lost, and then some!
But the last time I struggled like this, I quit sooner. I've been trying to pinpoint when my struggle began. It was sometime around November, after vacation. It's gotten increasingly worse, but I refuse to quit.
Imagine if I quit Spark this time. I would have gained back at least 5-10 pounds a month since November. I would have gained it all back!
But imagine if I hadn't lost my mojo. I could have lost 5 - 10 pounds a month since November.
I'm somewhere in the middle. The question is . . . . how long do you plan to stay in the middle?
One positive . . . somewhere in the middle is better than quitting. Thumbs up for somewhere in the middle. I'll hang from my yo-yo string, but I'm not letting go!
