I've really fallen down on the way side of sparking for a long time. I have failed many of my spark friends. I used to love leading and inspiring. Just seems like I need a spark. I'm all fueled out. I have good intentions but they just don't pan out. If anyone wants to step in and take my spot I would ne thankful and happy. I really don't want to lose this team. Alicia worked so hard. I would gladly assist with ideas and such but I just can't do it all. I'm sorry. I got everyone's hopes up and crashed into the wall. I hope you can forgive me. I got discouraged and drifted off.

Ok so far so good. I'm going to follow this a bit longer so we have a larger consensus of opinion.
As for help, support each other, post here in the forums, periodically pick someone and check in on them. Other than that if anyone is interested in colliding, please let me know.
Thanks for the recognition of starting the team, but all I did was try to get it back going. This team is all Alicia, she discussed it with me and ran with it! Her and nixie had a great thing going! But thanks

Hey Ginette,

I myself have been ridiculously busy lately and thus haven't been here as much as usual so I can understand. I would like to see the team continue as I've been here a long time and you all have helped me a great deal. I will try and be more present on the team forum, please let me know if I can help in any way.

Hey Ginette... I am feeling really bad that I haven't kept up with this team as well as I should have. I appreciate all you and Alicia have done to create and maintain this team. Personally, I would like to see it continue. This is a nice group of team mates and we all could use the support and connections to help keep ourselves on track. I will do my part to be more active with posting and commenting in threads. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to support/encourage/help the team.

I tend to be a silent member of the team and I know we've been struggling. I am off of work for at least the next 8 weeks. I'll be happy to step in as a co-leader to help keep things going. I am in the process of planning my wedding and finding a full time job, but as long as I'm off I don't mind leading. Since I think I'm the one who started Alicia's nickname being Popeye, I'm all for keeping things going.

Rae

S - Start slowly, set yourself up for success
T - Try new things, don't say you can't do something or don't like something before you have tried it.
A - Add movement everywhere, walking farther, calf raises while waiting in line, etc.
R - Realize that you are human & will make mistakes
T- Take time to recognize your successes - celebrate!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can and the wisdom to know it's me.

Since I'm fairly new here, I don't have a lot to say. I, too, have been struggling lately as I've undertaken cleaning up as much of my home as I can under the hoarding situation. I just haven't had the time or energy to spend here lately. I'm hoping for those involved who have been involved for a long time that the team will stay together. But ultimately I'll accept whatever decision is made.

Come on, team, please respond so a careful decision can be made with regard to this team! Ginette needs us to pull together right now. I've known her for a long time and she is sincere when she says we can tell her what we desire. Be up front and honest with her.

This is the start of my third month of classes. Between the classes, doctors, attorneys, surgeons, testings, and homework, I think my brain is going to explode! I can barely keep half my house clean at this point. It is unbelievable. I love the classes and I'm glad doctors are finally listening but geez. Unfortunately everything slips by the way side. For that I'm truly sorry. Typically I'm a much better friend and supporter than this. Classes will be done at the end of this month. Shortly after that I should be back on track. Until than, carry the past goals through this month.

Additionally, I spoke with Alicia/alimessa a few weeks back. I've advised her what has been going on and that I am trying to keep the team together, she was happy about that. She is doing ok for those concerned. Emotionally she says she isn't ready to come back just yet and is unsure when she might.

That being said the team as a whole has a decision to make. Do we keep the team going? I want everyone included because you all participated a lot more when she was here and seems only a few came back. What do you want me to do? You all tell me.
Hugs be strong and work that body good!
