This Sparked Me!

I have found that if I am feeling a bit down, one way that I help myself is to leave a SparkGoodie for a friend or if Ileave a supportive message on a blog or a page. It's a great way to tuen around my own feelings as well and I love doing it!!

Give someone else a boost who might need it too!!

    It's so true. When I post a comment on someone elses 'struggle' I feel I'm giving myself a peptalk as well! emoticon

    so very true...I have done this before....and even though I may not feel 100% better, I certainly am much more enthused and more motivated than I was before.

    I have heard the best medicine to feeling blue is to do something for someone else. Oftentimes when we're busy helping others we'll forget how blue we really are.

    I do this very often. Spreading smiles to others when I personally feel sad really helps most days.

    One smile--or smiling thought begets another. What a great way to start a day...for two people!! Go for it and see what I mean.
