I got this picture in an email yesterday, and as I pondered the dog's situation, I began to wonder...am I like this? Do I sit for long periods of time just waiting for something to happen? Is my happiness dependent on others?
At one time, the answer to all those questions would have been a resounding YES! But that's not me anymore. Through SparkPeople, I have found that I am the master of my own life - as long as God is beside me, I can design my own destiny. I am in control of my own happiness.
Getting up and moving can be as simple as walking. I can do that without any special equipment. Just tie on my 'tennies' and start moving my legs. Taking control of my eating, and starting on my 'new way of life' will lead to great happiness as I see the pounds melting away and my health improving.
Thank you SparkPeople for opening my eyes to this simple truth. I sat around enough years waiting for that elusive dream that would never happen. Thank you for expanding my 'little world' to see the limitless possibilities set before me. Thank you for giving me the solution to my 'dream come true'.
I can never thank you enough, but by losing weight and getting healthy, I hope to encourage others to follow down this path of self-enlightenment to reach their goals and dreams.
