I was really thinking about this the other day and came to the conclusion that health and fitness has saved me. Health and fitness has saved my life! That may seem to be a bit of hyperbole but when I really think about it, it isn't. Not to long ago, I was heading down a road of almost certain health problems and a likely early death. That is about as real as things get when you think about it.
Health and fitness has helped by not only making me a healthier person and giving me the best chance possible for a longer life, but has made me happier person as well. Being that happier person has led me to being someone who is full of life. I want to get out and LIVE life to it's fullest! I want to try new things! I want to stand on a mountain and yell to the world that this is the new me! This is the me I knew I wanted to be! This is the new me that knew I could be! I have a passion for life that I had lost along the way. Now, I WANT IT ALL!
I didn't feel that way before. Life was a struggle. I was completely lost with who I had become. I was completely lost with where I was going. I had no direction. I lost myself. I lost my way.
I had to really look at myself and figure out what I was doing. It was a lot of soul searching. It was a lot of really examining what I was doing with my life and figuring out what changes I needed to make. It was hard. It was really hard.
When I finally got to a point where I was ready to make that real change, that lifestyle change, I realized something I will never forget. I AM ENOUGH. Yes, I AM ENOUGH. In fact, WE ARE ENOUGH! We may not be perfect but there is something so perfect in finding others who share in our struggles. We came here to Spark seeking answers. Seeking knowledge. Seeking something that would help ignite our journeys into everlasting success! For me, with the help of the Spark community, I found health and fitness that has changed my life in more ways that I could ever explain!
This community allows us to share our hopes, dreams, fears, and ideas. We can listen to one other, get a push when we want to give up, and encourage others who are going through struggles that we ourselves are dealing or have already dealt with. We have someone to laugh with, cry with, and someone to even pick us up when we fall down. Because we will fall down but it isn't about how many times you fall as long as you get up one more time!
This is a community that can support you to have more, want more, and be more than you ever thought you could! You hold the key to your happiness. You are enough! This journey that we have embarked on can be scary, but together, we can do this! We have it within us to be our own change that we have always dreamt of! We can use the gift of health and fitness to achieve it all!
Spark has helped to lead me to this point. YOU have helped lead me to this point! I wish I could convey to each and every one of you how much I truly appreciate the support you have shown me over the last year +. I want you all to know that I pull for you all every day in hopes that you can meet all of your hopes and dreams. You all have my light on many dark days and I can't put a price on that. We do that for each other!
This journey isn't over. No, no. This journey has only just begun and I can't wait to see what is down the road for us all! Remember, YOU ARE ENOUGH. WE ARE ENOUGH. You have it within you to BE YOUR CHANGE!
Embrace Your Possibilities
Good Day Sparkville
