Dealing with a parent's death & the fear of sparking??

Sunday, April 28, 2013

As some of you know my father passed away April 9th in Norfolk VA and we buried him April 15th . Saying good bye to him begins a whole new chapter for my family and I. Thanks to all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers -they really do help!

Now that I'm back in Sacramento, I want to simplify my life more. I'm thinking that I should just stop Sparking. I've never been a good-consistent Spark Person.

Do any of you have anxiety from not sparking when you know that you probably should?? Strange thoughts floating through my head. Hmmm -FEAR OF SPARKING....

But wait, I still want to live healthier, so why am I such a failure at Sparking?

    There are not enough words to express my share of sadness over the loss of your Dad. I do think when we are down it is a good time to take stock of what we really want and need in our lives. Just know that we are here for you and will do all we can to support you during this fragile time.

    I have been very consistent in my Sparking for 2 years, but now occasionally take a day off here and there. It is hard to think about missed points, missed SP friends and such, but I sometimes force myself to do it just to show the world won't end. Am so busy at times, that something has to give, and SP sometimes is what gives.

    So sorry for the loss of your father. It is hard to lose a parent. Thankfully my mom is still here and we are close and get together often.
