I learned today that I had been selected (elected?) as a Spark People Motivator, in the fitness category. I didn't know whether to be excited or humbled, but in the end I am both.
I am so excited to be recognized, because I have learned that staying positive and encouraging others is a key component to my own success. Not unlike 12 step programs, where sharing your story is a requirement of continued recovery -- investing into other people's success pays dividends into my own. Hello, my name is Tammy, and I'm living the Spark!
I am humbled, because all of the people who I turn to for support, encouragement, camaraderie, understanding, advice and laughter are themselves Spark People Motivators. It is truly humbling to think that other people thought of me the same way I think of these people. When I am struggling I look at Motivational spark pages to get my groove back. When I feel like I'm stagnating, I look to see where others have been successful. Just last week I had an "a-ha" moment because I had been reading other Spark Motivator pages and something clicked for me. To think that I will now have my page included in that company... Wow. Amazing.
So to everyone who voted for me,
. I truly hope that I can continue to motivate, thereby reaching my own goals and living my best life.
