Friends at SparkPeople.

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I have not been feeling well, dealing with my ulcerative colitis and poor attitudes at work. I was started to feel overwhelmed and depressed. I felt like I didn't know who I was anymore and what I wanted out of my life.
Then one day as I was catching up on my SparkPeople site I started reading about all the successful people who made it through challenges in life and are still going strong. All of them had one thing in common, a positive attitude to help get them through thier challenges.
After reading and thinking about them, I felt like a weight was taken off my shoulder. I now know that how you react to things makes a big difference. Since then I have a smile on my face, a kick in my step and I feel like I am living again.
So thank all of my SparkPeople friends and everyone else who shared their successful stories with us.
Goodbye negativity, hello positivity. Keep Smiling! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Congrats on not allowing yourself to sink into depression! You can do this, and we're all right here with you. The awesome thing at SP is that you gain inspiration from others and then you share it here like this and become an inspiration yourself. :)
