I was thinking about the SCRABBLE blog we were asked to create and as I was thinking, the thought came to me that the purpose of the game of Scrabble is to build a word, then another, then another by linking letters together. In the beginning, the words don't always come automatically, and sometimes you really have to look at that mess of 7 individual letters in front of you, to create something that makes sense.
Then, I thought about my journey here on Spark People. You remember the song, "It Only Takes a Spark To Get a Fire Going?" We can't do it alone. We need one another and we build upon each other. Sometimes we think about the future and all we see is a jumbled mess. We can't seem to make sense of it all. But the longer we stick with it......the more it seems to make sense. And then it finally clicks.
What my journey has taught me so far:
Success comes in other forms other than a scale that only measures weight
Change follows commitment
Rest is necessary to stay healthy
Accountability keeps me on track
Believe in myself
BLCs challenge me as much inwardly as they do outwardly
Listen to my heart because sometimes the head gets too cluttered
Exercise is part of the lifestyle change
