It's Been A Long Time...
Saturday, May 08, 2010
I have been awol from SP for so long I know.
I garnered so much knowledge and support and yet gave of myself a bit more than I received and hence my absence.
Something about this forum made me think... "How many minutes and hours of my life, am I investing when I could be sleeping, exercising, planning?"
It's not that I don't love the community, but for me, it became an addiction, at the expense of MYSELF.
Just saying that I LOVE my very SPECIAL SPARK FRIENDS that I remain interractive with, but life moves forward, and times change, and this makes me sad in a sense. Yet in another sense, I am so very thankful that I garnered the tools here to make a start, that otherwise I would have never had the courage to make.
I ran my first half marathon last weekend and I would have never imagined this as a possibility in my life-time. But I did it. I did. And I did it through sheer determination and pain and strength and lesser time on the internet.
AND thankin' my SP friends for all the previous love.
