Sometimes we need a little dressing!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

We are on a journey. Sometimes our journey takes an unexpected turn and we lose our way. Then suddenly for whatever the reason we regain our direction and continue. It doesn't seem to be any one thing in particular that redirects us. In fact, there is nothing anyone can do and there are no words that can change what has happened to us. Something inside us just has to spark again and motivates us to continue. This something has to come from within us.

One of the biggest mistake I make is making everything all or nothing! If I could just learn it is okay to do things in moderation. Life is like a salad. It is the things we add that gives us the energy to continue. We all need proteins, fats and carbs.

Today I came here standing at a cross road. I saw a green light so I took a step forward. Then I saw a comment from a friend! Welcome back Salad Dressing!!

Wishing you a great month. Shoes emoticon

    emoticon Shoes for your great blog! I needed a reminder that our journey is about moderation, rather than the all-or-nothing mindset. I love Tiffany's response to your blog. You both have helped me to jump-start my journey in a better frame of mind. Sending WE CAN DO IT support and hugs! Have a wonderful week!

    You speak the truth. We (okay, I) must stop seeking external motivation. It seems the switch is either on or off for whatever random reason. The difference between this journey and all the others I've been on is the support from Sparkfriends. I'm not just talking about the "You can do its" and "Keep pushings". Just checking in daily and seeing everyone else following their journey, or even struggling, gives me the umpf to keep trying. Even if it's just baby steps.

You've had a rough couple of months. I love that you keep finding the silver lining. One thing I've realized is that SP is not just about losing weight. It's about finding, or making, our own peace. Have a peaceful weekend and enjoy that new pup!

    Taking a break for whatever reason makes us realize what we truly want and what we will journey toward.
Enjoy your journey!
