Starting Over...Again

Monday, July 08, 2013

It has been almost a year since the last time I logged on to Spark People. I can't even explain why I stopped. I loved all of the friends I made here, I loved the plan, I loved the success, and I loved the support.

I went from being completely motivated, positive and happy to....well...to nothing really. I just stopped. I know I had a good case of the blues for a little while, but I can't even attribute my absence to that. It was quite literally like the click of a switch, one day it just got turned off.

I'm still searching for the switch so that I can turn it back on. So far I haven't been able to find it. I am hoping that by coming back here I will be able to find it...or maybe find a new switch.

I have decided to start from the beginning. Don't get me wrong, I won't forget all that came before this point, both the successes and losses. But I really need to clean the slate and start from square one. With a clean slate I can set aside all the clutter from before and maybe I'll be able to see my way forward once again.

So, with a little push, a little help and a little support I think I'm ready to start over...again.

    First of all....Welcome Back! emoticon

    I think we all wander off of our path once in awhile, I know I sure did!
    One thing that helped me fuel my spark again was to go back and read through my blogs, see what it was exactly that sparked me in the first place, then I reinforced it by recreating it.
