Attitudes and Behaviors

Sunday, November 24, 2013

If you've read The Spark or any of the articles on the philosophy behind SP, you know about the cross-over effects of this program. I've personally come to know that this is far more than a physical journey for me and I've read enough members blogs and message board posts to know that it is the same for a lot of people.

This is definitely a physical, emotional and spiritual journey for me. Losing the weight is simply a building block to other goals. So, when I read a blog today that was what I call a "venting" blog it called on me to think about some attitudes and behaviors that I want to eradicate from my life or to expand upon in my life. I don't know if that makes sense or not but this blog is for me today. I need to ask the hard questions of myself and if that blog prompted me to do it then I can look beyond what I saw as "mean spiritedness".

Am I a blessing to someone in some way every day?

Am I critical and judgmental?

Do I think before I speak?

Do I look beyond the who and the what to the why?

Do I act nice and then complain about it later?

Do I let things go?

Do I live my life with grace and compassion (for myself and others)?

Do I really listen and absorb what others say?

Do I have a "what about me?" attitude?

Do I get up every day in hopeful expectation that something good is going to happen to me and through me?

Do I make excuses for myself and my behavior and do I have a pity party when things don't go my way?
