This new Diva has gotten her soul in shape!

Thursday, October 07, 2010

I've fallen off track the past two months here on Spark, been busy, the kids have busier schedules than I do, stress all around me financially, emotionally, excuses, excuses, excuses etc. and in the midst of everything I found a fabulous group of Diva sisters that have helped me inside and out. I started a new side business with an amazing skincare company (
llea) and this experience is teaching me to push myself like I've never pushed myself before, especially outside my comfort zone! Yikes, is it uncomfortable sometimes! But wow, how rewarding!

It's important to find the support you need to accomplish your goals, just that little push and inspiration when you need it most. To get an email or text from a friend with that positive twist, especially when you're always looking at the negative, is a very humbling feeling. I love SparkPeople and all my SparkPeople friends, when I'm here and involved I feel powerful. It's easy to get bummed out and not log in (that's exactly what I've done for the past couple months). But starting on this new venture has empowered me to want to help empower others. I'm tired of my days getting away from me! Meeting new people, hearing what they are doing and how they are living is incredible! Getting back on track to eating healthy or working out is sometimes uncomfortable, you wonder 'where do I begin'? You can't ask, you can't wait, the days will fly by, opportunities will pass you by.

Yes, I want to be healthy and physically in shape for myself & my family, but I never really realized how important it was to me to get my soul out there ~ clearly I'm a slow learner but I love the fact that I'm still learning everyday and that I'm truly a work in progress. I've lived in my comfort zone for way to long. I'm busting out, doing things I've never done, going places I've never gone, sparking like I've never sparked and I'm so excited!

Push yourself, the rewards are endless!

    It sounds as if you had a very productive Summer, and have gained a lot of confidence and learned a lot from your friends and the business.
Now you can fit Spark into that and be a Diva to be reckoned with!!
