My Spark Journey Revelations

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I have been on Sparkpeople for more than 6 months, and during this time, I have learned some important "lessons" in my life that I would like to share with you, my Spark friends. So, here it goes:

- Sometimes, bad things happen for a good reason. If I hadn't gained 60 pounds due to health issues, I would later never have discovered the joy of living an active life and being physically active! Yes, it is true: workout is a natural mood-lifter. I feel better and more energetic, and can't imagine a life without workout anymore.

- Yes, one cake does make a difference! So does every step in the right direction, and every single healthy decision.

- There will always be set-backs. Don't look at the trees and forget the forest!

- Always be thankful to other people for support. I have only just recently realized how much this means to me! I couldn't have changed my lifestyle without all the support from my husband, family and friends - Spark friends included, who live hundreds of miles away! I am so grateful for every encouragement, and I am beginning - and will do my best to continue - to give back what I have received, and to spread the Spark.

- I am a work in progress, and so is everyone else. My job is to do my best every day. And yes, people can change.

For instance from this point in my life:



to this point in my life:



and further. I continue learning, and loving my life!

    That is a great blog. I am so glad you are loving your life. Sometimes it is hard to when there are so many negative things going on. It took me a long time to finally "love" my life, but I am so glad I finally did. Keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
