I'm Taking a Spark Break!

Sunday, April 27, 2014




Always remember that you are a valuable, brilliant diamond, here to shine your light to the world in your own special way.


"Much as worthy friends add to the happiness and value of our life, we must in the main depend upon ourselves. And every one is his own best friend or worst enemy."
-Lord Evebury







I am going to be taking a 90 day Spark Break and taking my page offline. Then I will make a decision about coming back.
I appreciate all the friendships I have formed. I am fine - life just doesn't have enough hours. I've met my goals regarding weight
loss and I feel like I've found the physical strength I had lost about 10 years ago. I love my low carb food plan and all the new exercises I've added to my lifestyle. I felt the need to add some creative parts to my life to create some balance and I have begun piano lessons and joined a harp circle and a few other community groups. It's time to get back to real life instead of spending so much time in the
virtual world of Spark People. I wish each and every one of you well on your journey. I'll still be tracking my food and fitness on a daily
basis and may pop by and read blogs occasionally. You have it within you to reach your goals if you just dig deep and give it a "no excuses" attitude. Thanks for all the fun and inspiration you have shared with me. I hope you will keep sparking, keep walking and keep heading in the direction of your best self!
Linda

    I haven't really known you for long, but feel that you have given many people inspiration to reach beyond themselves, and brought out people to us that we hadn't experienced. The best to you in your future, and thank you for all you've done. eva

    Re: Your first graphic, please don't close the book on us here on Spark that have been following you. Instead of taking your page offline, could you keep it open and update your status occasionally when you do your tracking?

I will miss your blogs and your "Maxines".

    I hate goodbyes. I wish you the best and know that you are doing what is best for you. You are definitely a Spark People success not only for losing weight but for inspiring and motivating me and many others. I am so proud of you for achieving your goal and moving on to conquer something new. I will miss you. emoticon emoticon

    Hi Linda,

Is there a way that you can leave your blogs in here for others to read if you close your page?

The reason I ask this is because many of them are so inspirational and can help many more to achieve even if you are not in here personally. It would be such a shame to loose all this vital information from here.

Just an idea,

Cheers love & respect as always

    We all do what we need to do to take care of ourselves effective - not only have I myself taken a break or two........I've actually "killed off" my first user name and created a new persona/account, rather than simply changing the username and keeping the old account - I thought a total restart was in order for a few reasons..........

I wish you all the best with your break time......

    Hi Linda,

Make sure you send us a link to your email through here or send us a link directly at tjwmusic@yahoo.co.uk - keep us informed of where you are on the piano and I may be able to send you over a selection of my simpler pieces for you to have a go at playing.

You will be very much missed in here - there is absolutely no doubt about it but only you know for sure about taking a break so I no doubt you are doing the right things for you.

I have a couple of hundred piano pieces I have written for my students at a wide range of levels over the years so no doubt know there will be something there to suite your ability wherever it happens to be at the moment.

Your friendship is important to me weather in here or not so please make sure you keep in touch.

Cheers love and respect to a very special person

Trev
