Be BOLD!! And be STRONG!!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

As Capt. Jean Luc Picard would always say : "Make it so!"

Feeling strong today , reflecting yesterday was a good thing I will do that more often , went to my bible study group last night, funny thing is my husband and I are the youngest people there , we get new people and we see the gray hair at first I say "Crap another old person!!!"

but you know listening to their stories is just fascinating some of them can write a book on things they have been through even harder what I have dealt with and dealing with now in present time and working on my post traumatic stress.

So it was a good time of sharing and also reflecting how God is really blessing me and my husband and people around me whom I care about , even my spark family !!

Today the verse comes to mind "The rightous are as bold as a lion."

I am going into today as bold as a lion and not giving my co workers even permission to make me feel bad , I am good at my job and I am improving myself for me .

On the other hand though I know there is a balance to look at the interest and help the needs of others , I am working on that balance because I tend to focus too much on others and do anything in my power to give them what they need to be comfortable.

I am the one who gets uncomfortable I am not doing that anymore I have a balance and I am learning what I need to do to stay balanced.

Love you Sparkers have a balanced day and Be strong!

    hi, I am posting a new challenge to lose 10 pounds in July come and join me..i need the encouragement, the support of all my spark friends. the link is below. ive been gone way too long and im back and ready to make it happen!

i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!

click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

  I find the two age groups give and take from each other.

For example, my church doesn't have many singles anymore. I got into two groups, one in the neighborhood, and one with my sister.

One of them had ladies that had a bunch of kids. The other group was half single.

I'v enjoyed them both so much!!!!

I loved the energy, passion, volunteer projects the single ladies were doing. Such inspiration.

I really was blessed with the younger moms kids and they are more willing to exercise, jump in with both feet, and their enthusiasm.

I'm past 50, but In some regards I feel as I have more in common with the younger women.

It seems that I'm the only one objecting, when in some circles, they are telling stories of decline , what we can or can't do anymore, and things aching and falling apart.

They call my reaction denial. I just don't happen to think we have to go along with that. I mean sure something we can't control, but our attitude isn't one of them. emoticon
