Occasionally, I need to stop and recharge my Secret Power of Awesome. This was one of those weeks. (If you don’t know what my Secret Power of Awesome is, here’s the vlog that explains it: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
Anywho, I caught myself thinking a few disheartening thoughts after seeing myself in a few recent videos and pics. I thought, “Oh my gosh, I have such a loooooong way to go. Will I ever get out of this fat suit?”
Yes. I actually thought that. Me. The Queen of the Secret Power of Awesome.
Red flags flew, warning bells chimed, that cartoony klaxon sound rang in my ears. Ooooooo gah, ooooooo gah. And I stopped everything. Whoa. That kind of thinking is strictly AGAINST THE RULES. So decided I needed to stop, take a minute to look back, see how far I’ve come and celebrate a few other NSVs. Here we go:

And this lil guy, who really needed google eyes.
I was NOT embarrassed to have my staff pic taken for the website.
And I might get to go kayaking with ‘Rika tomorrow. And I have a bunch of fun, creative projects in the works right now. And my kids are trying new things and challenging themselves. And hubs is happy at work. And we have a roof over our heads and we haven’t driven each other completely crazy yet. And my brother just turned 50. And my dad and bonus mom are celebrating their anniversary. And Audrey and I belly laughed for about ten minutes yesterday. And there’s this--
I put this into my Captain Woohoo jar this morning.
So, I recharged my Secret Power of Awesome and I’m ready to tackle the weekend. How ‘bout you? Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!!
