I was talking with a friend today about how much those around you influence you - your mood, your attitude, your choices. She asked me what I had been doing differently because she noticed my attitude is better, my moods more positive. I told her that when I am upset, discouraged, angry, anxious, etc. I turn to Sparkpeople for a few minutes and check out the blogs, pages, articles, huddles or whatever catches my eye. There is so much encouragement going on on here that you can't help but pick up that *Spark* That helps carry me along. Encouraging someone else who is having a bad day is a great way to put my own in perspective. Or maybe commiserating with someone who is having the same kind of day makes me feel I am not the only one. Whatever the case. It is helping!
