Keeping your inner peace is harder than it seems

Monday, February 10, 2014

Good morning everyone,
I've had a very healing weekend!!! I hope everyone else has as well.
I've come to realize that if we spend all our time worrying about the future or others negative actions we will never accomplish what we were set here to do... Enjoy life and those who sorround us. Tommorrow is not guaranteed to any of us and well i just have decided that i will not spend any amount of timeever again worrying. its irrelevant to want to control the things that happen around us because they were already set in place to be the way they are. There are certain people who make it their life goal to make others feel sad, feel mad, feel as a failure... because they feel this way and once given the opportunity to make others feel the same way they will. Sometimes it can be those who we once thought were close to us...BUT IT IS UP TO US TO REALIZE THAT NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION!! End those conversations with kindness as i did this weekend, and you will see when misery has no where to feed it will be on its way. So i live in the present and ill open my eyes and look up to the skies and thank god for every breathe i take , for every mistake ive made because it has made me who i am. I may not be perfect , i make daily mistakes, we are human ... "we live and we learn". So today dont beat yourself up so much when you mess up , its part of our reality. Just give yourself a break this monday and breathe in slowly and pick up the pieces and start back where you left off.

5 things i will concentrate on today

Thursday, January 23, 2014

1- smile at work even when i want to scream
2- use my energy towards positive things only- negativity just drains our efforts
3- stay away from negativity when possible- this is almost impossible
4- spend time with my family - i always do this one family is the most important thing to me
5- do more of the things that make me happy- maybe at least one...

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

hello sparkers

im feeling a little motivated, seems if you think positive positive will follow. I started today feeling horrible about myself and the environment around me, but i chose to shrug it off and boom things are working out pretty good.

So here it goes my list of goals for this year:

1- by this summer i will loose 10 more pounds
2- i will get my drivers license this year

positive things only

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Hello sparkers sorry ive beem MIA,
im not feeling very well today but here it goes.....

Overall being with my family and spending quality time with my daughter has been at the top of my list. Today is arts activities at my home. I look forward to spending that one on one time with my baby girl. Im recovering from a bad case of bronchitis, and its TOM, its snowing outside and i have to work. im feeling a little down today given im not at my healthiest. combating this bronchitis has me feeling really fatigued. I left work early last WEDNESDAY and missed work on THURSDAY due to my bronchitis i could barely breathe, however at work that seems to be just a call out excuse.. that really gets under my skin... later that night one of my co workers text me " how are you feeling today kathy" i text back "im feeling a bit better, my body really needed to rest". She text me back saying "Poor Kathy". Little did she know sarcasm is a second language at my house. So i replied "thanks for asking"...... I didnt give in to her negative manner and kept positive. Its little things like this that tell you your collegues who claim to be your friends, really are not. When i came back to work after being out only 2 days one of my supervisors has the nerve to say " how was that vacation". I was coughing so much i could barely breathe.

But im here. ill keep pushing because thats what needs to be done. i wont give up because im not a quitter. ill keep sparking and ill keep visiting sparkpeple because this is my happy place, i can write, i can chat, i can read and i dont ever feel judged by others!! what a great feeling that is!!


1- I baked yummy chocolate muffins with my baby girl- only ate one
2- i kept my mouth shut today when i really wanted to insult one of my co workers- that took alot of stregnth
3- I spent quality time with my family - last night was movie night.

Thank you for listening todays positive highlight- loggin into spark and letting go of the negativity that sorrounds me here at work.

What all the rush for?

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

So ive come to realize that lately my life seems like a rat race. Im sure many can relate.

get up in the morning, gotta rush to get breakfast done and eaten, kisses to hubby as we part ways and were off!! gotta rush to get daughter to school on time, gotta rush to get to work on time, gotta rush at work to get the jobs done by deadlines, lunchtime!!, gotta rush to finish and relax for a couple minutes, ohh look at the time its back to work time!! yikes!! rush again through another 4 hours of phone calls, clients walking in without a minute to loose, rush to finish the reports, rush to print the reports for the next day, ohh no look at the time another last minute meeting.... yay made it through the work day , everythigs accomplished but the paper work keeps pilling up, oh well will continue tommorrow.. Husband and daughter here to pick me up yayy!! hugs and kisses again. "wow baby good day at school" ohh noo its already time for dinner, "how was your day"? " bussy, great me too" .better hurry, dishes pilling, back packs , clothes all over the living room, dinner times up , , rush to clean up , wow already bath time, splash splash, splash, soaked and wet, lets get dressed sweety.... yawnn... time for bed sweety..Baby asleep .oops mommys and daddy up again need to pack lunches and clothes for tommorrow. ALL set, now time for us ....to ....go ... relax ......ohh so tired.. whats that??? we fell assleep.... without noticing .....6 more hours left....yawnnn.... Ding Ding Ding. alarm clocks going off again ...oh no its morning time again!!! Better get up!! time to rush again!!

So tired of the rush, i refuse to do it anymore. TODAY I DONT CARE ANYMORE!! If i dont meet the deadline, or I get to work late , or the dishes pile up even higher and they dont get washed ..Theres always tommorrow...

Life is so short what is all the rush for??

Today lets take time to remember that life is short and we should stop and enjoy the little things every now and then. i will definetly put a stop to this cycle today. Im tired of looking at the clock, the clock will not tell me what to do, i will tell the clock what its time is good for. time to enjoy the little things. No more Rush Rush
