Something great has happened, today, which makes me very happy. Let me start by saying that the past week or so, I have experienced a great amount of stress, depression, and ( for lack of a better word) "blahs". I was really down and it showed in how I took care of MYSELF. Not cool! But, last night I received an email, from a Sparkfriend which merely stated "how are you doing?' That really touched me. It touched me so much, I got to thinking about why I let things get to me.
First of all, there will always be problems in life, some we can control and some we can't. I have to teach myself that, no matter what happens in my life I need to think of me and my health, and how I can make me better.
So, I got up this morning, tracked my food, I worked out, and have decided that I will do my chores, and add a few more exercises to my day. But, most of all I will keep a positive attitude.
I realize that it won't be easy, but, if I feel myself getting down and losing my motivational I will turn to my Sparkfriends and I will go to that special email "how are you doing?"
So, if you know someone who is having a hard time, show them you care and just ask them "how are you doing?' It will be all they need to know that someone cares.
