From a faint and pitiful spark ... LIFE!!!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

I've decided to start blogging about my journey to a healthy new life. I put this off because I blog on other sites and didn't want to feel overwhelmed. I wanted to focus my energies on doing the journey before writing about it. As I begin to have more daily energy, and things to share and remember, I decided it was time.

I was prompted by one of the motivational quotes (by W.J. Camero) in my Spark Coach program yesterday. It resonated with me. It referenced how our most pitiful last-ditch effort can be the one that changes everything. That's where this latest part of a long journey began for me. When I came to SparkPeople on November 8 of this year, just short of a month ago, I felt pretty helpless to change. I'd tried so many times but to no avail. I still had hope and I just couldn't seem to give it up. But I started in on this new journey with a pitiful last-ditch effort.

That was the spark that changed everything. Granted, it was God who changed everything. I'm a Christian and a healing prayer minister and I've been doing a lot of inner healing work for 5 years that brought me to this point. Nevertheless, the place I was in, physically, mentally and emotionally when I made the desperate and almost defeated decision on November 8 to try yet again was a place of near hopelessness and a feeling that despite all the amazing changes in my life, it might be too late to make THIS change. A desperate and weak little spark that nearly put itself out. Boom! It took like wildfire. The past month has amazed me beyond belief. I have life, and I have it abundantly. From that one pitiful spark and a last-ditch effort to stay alive ... and to find new life!
