do I need encouragement

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I would say yes who doesn't need encouragement? I love when people leave me nice messages and encouraging words. sometimes it helps u get through a tough day or lifts your spirits when you are down. When I was injured for 4 months I had so many nice words sent to me telling me not to give up and to stay positive and find other things to do until my leg healed. those words helped me get through a really tough time!!!!

    Love your honesty! One inspiring thing about SP is watching people's posts reflect their growth and change, and for sure, we need encouragement from others to help us along!

    We all need encouragement, and the support of our Spark Friends is one of the best parts of belonging to Spark People.

    We all need encouragement. Keeps us moving in the right direction.
It also sometimes put's a smile on your face, that someone said something nice.

    For some reason, I am reminded of the song, "Home on the Range"

"Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play;
There seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the sky is not cloudy all day."

Here's to blue skies and encouraging words!

    i have tried to encourage my husband to become much more active, and was even able to convince him to join spark people in large part due to the story of you and your wife - getting fit together, and being active together... so know that you are encouraging people all over simply by leading the life you are leading and sharing your story :)

    Every one needs encouragement and kind words. Too often we forget that in today's fast paced world. You work in a challenging field, both phyically and emotionally. I know it is rewarding to you. I commend you for your dedication and careing attitude. emoticon emoticon Keep training for yourself. emoticon
