What's your Inspiration?

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I started out today in a funk, reading facebook updates. I am honestly sick of reading everyone's political stances. I was raised that there are 2 things we don't talk about outside the home, politics & religion. That's all I'm saying..



So, while reading my Spark peeps status' I notice BONOLICIOUS2's and go to read her newest blog. Here is a member I have always felt I connected with and she is writing about being in a rough patch in the garden. Luckily, though she is recognizing it and digging past the weeds, thanking all of us for our support. That is what I love about Sparkpeople, we are all there for each other, no judging, no ridicule just pure support from people all over the world without even asking for it, it's just understood and given.



Life gets in the way for all of us at different times, but we find inspiration to bring us back...



So, what's your inspiration?

    Yes Ma'm, I agree with you. Those two subjects are'nt meant for general discussions in public, besides, from what I can tell no one ever agrees on either anyways so there is also no point in discussing them in the first place, well that's my opinion.

  It's good to connect to positive people. During the political season, I always take heart that no matter how heated, we've learned to shake hands with each other. We are truly blessed to live in a country that knows hoe to do this!

  I liked this


I happen to be willing to discuss those 2 topics. I just insist that we agree to disagree. It's OK, as long as one doesn't get all ben emoticon t out of shape, and will stop and switch topics when you ask. We all know there are some that can't do that.

    Present moment awareness keeps me motivated. Taking three long slow concentrated breaths allow me to notice the present moment without the mental commentary.

    Well "funk" must be in the air! Sometimes I just allow myself an hour or so of feeling bad, sometimes crossing over into self pity! Then my best remedy is to write it out in my journal followed by some exercise. Some peppy music helps too. Thanks for the thoughtful post.

    I agree. I hardly facebook anymore. I get on there to see what my older kids and relatives are doing. I rarely post anything because of the same reason you said and more.

    Thank you so much for the inspirational statements you've put into this blog.

And I couldn't agree more. I love that everyone is so supportive of complete strangers. If only our non-computerized world was like this all the time...

Congrats on the weight loss! And might I say you make QUITE a warrior!!!!
