What a difference Spark Friends make!

Thursday, October 17, 2013

When I first began this SparkPeople journey, it was just for something to do while I recovered from an accident. My brother-in-law suggested it, and I appreciate that especially now! Spark Guy and my brother-in-law were my only Spark Friends, and I was ok with that really. I played around on the site, and didn't take any of it too seriously.
Now, moving ahead almost 4 years from that time, I am no longer playing around. I find this is a serious business, to change my life, my health, my outlook. Exercise and movement are the most important changes I have made. Also, I am no longer going it alone. My Spark Friends somehow instinctively know when I need a lift. I don't know how they know, but it just happens. Today, when I logged in, I had a lot of encouragement waiting for me. I am so thankful for Spark Friends who take the time to encourage me, make me smile, chuckle, or sometimes laugh out loud! emoticon to all my Spark Friends!

    I agree. This site has got me through some rough times. Many times people had no clue what was going on. It seems to be the little things during the big times that change our perspective.

Just keep getting up. The downs will always loose.
