Perfection is over-rated

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Happy New Year Sparkies,

This morning when I logged into SparkPeople I was very tempted to restart my program but then I paused and asked myself why I want to do that, and whether I would be symbolically destroying the progress that I have made in the last bit. I have not been perfect, but I have made progress.

My commitment to myself is simply to bring my A-game. I'm not going to be perfect, because I am not able to be that. I am able to be the best I can on any given day. I can choose to bring myself to everything I do, and this is the choice I am making.

Love and my A-game,

    Great attitude! emoticon
Perfection is over rated, and any progress is a reward in itself!
Best wishes for a wonderful 2013!

    Wonderful choice and wonderful reason! Go YOU!
Life doesn't have a restart button, so we continue to build on all that has brought us to where we are now... the bad and the good has all made us a better us today. Glad you didn't reset your program records.

    Good to hear from you again, dear! I fizzled out my first time on Spark, then later just jumped back in and ramped it up. Those lost months were just part of the larger picture, a necessary detour to bring me to the point of determination to keep at it and find the tools to keep me motivated--for me it was setting point goals, and then discovering the joy and power of teams, and being very active on just a few. I trust you will find the recipe that works for you and keeps your Spark ignited.

Wishing you joy and success in the new year!
Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon

  any progress should be relished -- even not slipping into old habits should be relished! Go for it!! :)
