Challenging myself

Friday, August 30, 2013

Over the last day I have spent the day going over all my groups and they're daily goals. And then I looked at the goals I have set for myself. Yesterday I joined BLC23 I felt that maybe that it was a mistake, that I was push myself with everything. I have goals for weightloss, goals for healing my spirituality, and goals for finding my crafting love again.

I am so afraid that I will push myself to hard and set myself up for failure. But I quess the worst is that if I fail I would be letting a few very dear spark friends down.

So now I need to make a plan that will let me succeed without dropping any of my groups.

Yes I quess this was another venting blog. thanks for listening. emoticon emoticon

    This is YOUR journey , Debbie. If they are your true friends they will want what's best for you. BALANCE is the key for all of us.
Review your goals & teams, etc. Blog your decision & do what makes a winning formula for you. You got here not caring about yourself enough. It's NOT selfish to balance your life. It's practical.

    Sometimes you have to simply take care of YOU and do the best you can. Positive and supportive friends can keep you motivated and on track or they can drain you. You must decide how to make this work for YOU because THAT is the way you guarantee that others will also be encouraged and supported by the wonderful strong YOU who reaches out to them. Relax and figure out how you can make this work best and then commit to that plan.

    emoticon emoticon You will find that the BLC goals and challenges, will often be almost the same as those you're doing for other teams, so will count for both. The art is to take and complete the 'spirit' of the challenge, rather than the letter of it.

Don't worry about letting others down, you are doing this all for you, not them.

There is a great saying, that it's better to regret the things you did, than the things that you didn't do, and I think you will find in a few weeks, that this is one of the better things that you did.

    I agree it can be very hard to manage it all.

For me I can't so I must keep my friends and groups to a limit that I can really be good with. I try to contact all the friends that I hear from on a regular basis and I don't friend just anyone or everyone. I want to be able to give support and encouragement to my friends and it is very difficult - for me - to do this with everyone. I spend so much time on this computer SPARKING that my eyes are crossed when I am done. Other than reading my daily personal emails SP is the only other thing I do on line. I don't shop, I don't play games, I just SPARK and if I joined more teams and had more friends I probably wouldn't sleep either because I would feel obligated to be part of the groups and responsible to all of my friends. I just can't do that so I have to place limits on what I can do.; because there are just other necessary things I have to do in my life - LOL !!!

I hope you find what works for you, just remember that's what it has to be, something that WORKS for YOU !!! Good luck friend. I have complete faith in you that you will find the answer.

    It is hard juggling all those goals - maybe make the goals a little stretchy (ie I will walk a minimum of this many steps most days but on a good day I'll walk THIS many steps, just as an example.) Then you won't feel disappointed if you don't do the highest level possible in everything every day. Your determination is inspiring! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Just keep going, not stressing so much about group goals, just don't let yourself down
