Who am I?

Friday, June 19, 2009

I was upset today because someone that I welcomed into the community of Spark asked me who I was and what right I had to tell her about Starting a Spark page. I really feel like I was doing what I have been doing since I joined he community team. I welcome a new member and tell them what worked for me.
Having a Spark Page Worked. Using the Food and Exercise trackers worked for me. I am working on exercising more. It is a requirement of the team to send welcome messages to team members. I just wish I knew more. That is why I do not lead a team. I have met wonderful people on Spark. But I do not expect to be liked by anyone. It is a virtual world. It does help me lose and keep it off. I have been at my first goal weight for six months.
Ok I am done grousing. I love Spark. It is fun. It is educational and I am exercising and eating better than I have in years. So thank you all.

    emoticon on reaching your first goal! Keep on keeping on. Here is a quote I like , thought I would share it with you. "He drew a circle that shut me out, but Love and I had the wit to win, we drew a circle that took him in". Your not alone in receiving rude remarks , if you have been here awhile you will run into people who misunderstand you. It is their problem , don't make it yours. Keep on being your helpful self. emoticon

    In the words of Donny Osmond ""Don`t let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch of girls,Just give it one more try don`t give up on love!""

    The problem is not you, the problem is the persons attitude/manners.Of course people like you, because YOU are nice! Helllooooooooooooo!

    Not everyone who comes here or that we meet in life will have a positive attitude.I am always surprised but how surly people can be.I have a family member that ASKED for help and then said "Don`t tell ME how to raise MY child."Its this ""excuse me don`t tell ME what to do," response.I can tell you ,that, that person is always getting laid off at work, and you know why? Because they have a poor attitude.They don`t ask for help because they know everything already and when they are given tips, the attitude is surly, So how are we ever going to improve, if we don`t ask questions,seek advice or listen?The response should be "" Thanks for your input,I`ll think about that."" Or "thanks I think I have it covered."OR "Great idea!"or at the very least..."Sorry, I don`t remember asking for your help,Thanks though.I`m comfortable with doing it this way for now.If I find that I need help your the first person that I`d ask.

    Don`t stop doing what you are doing.Be a sparkpeople cheerleader.Its helpful and its appreciated by most people.

    You ARE awesome!!!!!!!Keep going!!!!!!!!Don`t feel badly just keep doing what you are doing!

    I'm sorry that someone reacted negatively to your welcome post! I enjoy hearing others' ideas and finding out what worked for them. Many times it is an idea I can incorporate into my own journey!
    You are right that not everyone likes everyone else.
    But you should just keep being you!
