Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

Hi there CTURCOTTE and welcome to the Motivation & Positive Attitude SparkTeam!

Losing weight can be a lonely journey because the only one who can do the work of losing it is us. But it's the companionship and understanding of other Sparkers who are on the journey we are that helps us get through. We may not all be traveling the same distance but we can be supportive and encouraging of each other while we put one foot in front of the other.

This is my second go round on SP and what I've discovered this time is that I get out of it what I put into it.

For me that means stepping out of my comfort zone of being shy and wanting to observe and not only joining SparkTeams but participating in them even if it is just welcoming new members. It also means that I have to take a leap of faith and friend other Sparkers, not just wait for them to friend me. Once I decided that I wanted to blog I decided to make a positive post each day, either on something I was trying to master, or remind myself to be mindful of so when I needed encouragement I could look back over it and see my journey.

You are right - you aren't alone with those feelings.

I am a mom who just turned 45.My kids are 19 and 15. I have my days when I am so positive I can do this. But to be honest that is not where I am right now. So I stepped away from Sparkpeople because well I really am asking myself how can you encourage others when you cant even encourage yourself? Well I personally think that is why I can. Because I am not alone with these feelings. Not all of us have a support person and have to rely on ourselves. So this is me.
