Happy is Your Best Weapon
Saturday, April 29, 2017      6 comments

A couple of months ago when I was praying about life, this thought came into my head: "Happy is your best weapon." It was an unusual thought... bad grammar to start with. But beyond that, it set me thinking. Why was I not happy? How does hap... Read more

This morning was fun. My co-worker and I kept messing up silly things and laughing at ourselves. She had her name tag upside down. I mixed up my words and said something funny. It was a ridiculous good morning. Then the afternoon shift ... Read more

I haven't blogged in a month. Life is hard. I've had lots of medical appointments. I think we're on the verge of making progress, at least I hope. Weight went up for a bit, but is working back down. I'm not giving up. I just can't ... Read more

Today was a tough day at the office. We were overbooked and understaffed. That meant we took turns doing housekeeping. While that's a great work out, and I enjoyed it immensely, the other side had it's serious drawbacks. I had to work ... Read more

I'm learning to set new boundaries. Mom wanted to talk with me tonight. I didn't want to. My pastor encouraged me to give myself permission to say no. I told her tonight didn't work for me without explaining. This evening, I found myself pr... Read more
Get Straight UP! (Awesome Sleep Advice)
Friday, February 17, 2017      3 comments

Yesterday's SparkCoach was about sleep. My main takeaway was that it wasn't helping to crawl back in bed after the alarm. I decided to go to bed early and get straight up. The alarm went off. I chanted to myself, "Get straight up!" I ... Read more

New Reason Why
Monday, February 13, 2017      6 comments

A day or two ago, I came up with a new reason why I want to keep sparking. When I make good decisions, I feel proud of myself. I like that feeling. I want more of it. Sparking is a celebration of the long quest for positive life change. I w... Read more
Why Today?
Friday, February 10, 2017      11 comments

I realized this morning that my reason for Sparking today is that it makes me feel like I'm in control of my life. SparkCoach was on ending negative self-talk and replacing it with positive. I wish I knew how to bookmark that video so I ... Read more
Why Now?
Thursday, February 09, 2017      5 comments

SparkCoach today was about knowing why you want your goals. I realized that my old reasons aren't working anymore. The pants fit. The vacation happened long ago. I have more energy and sometimes use it to play with the cat. It's all old new... Read more
Cancer Anyone? (Hopefully NOT!)
Monday, February 06, 2017      5 comments

I had finally come down from most of the holiday trauma. Counseling with my pastor had been helping a ton. Terror changed to tears and tears to peace. It was all settling down. Part of what made the difference is that I made a choice t... Read more

Life is always better when I do SparkCoach in the morning. I need to figure out how to keep it there. Go to bed on time... get out of bed shortly after the alarm... make sure there's time for both SparkCoach and the morning work out. When I h... Read more
Peace and Sharing the Spark
Thursday, January 26, 2017      4 comments

It's hard for me to explain what is going on inside me today. I usually listen to audio book quotes in the night, when life is hard. In light sleep, one section caught my attention. I put it on repeat. When I woke up, I rolled it into a piec... Read more
