Why the honour? I'm confused and for once, lost!

Thursday, March 03, 2011

As, some of one of "my" Spark teams will know, I have a current personal crisis that means that I can't devote the time and effort into enjoying the time that I spend here at Spark.
But, I had to spend a little of my time right now as when I switched the computer on for some "other" information, I find that I have been inundated with lots of messages congratulating me on being Motivator of the Day!

I feel firstly very surprised by this, as I haven't done anything that special for others anymore than the rest of you guys do to help each of us along.

Secondly, I am so very honoured for this to have been placed upon me! I just don't get it! There are far more people deserving of this honour surely?

And finally, I thought that I knew most of the places around this site, but can't seem to locate this particular place! (Perhaps I do know where it is, but in all the excitement, lost my bearings!).

I'd just like to say a BIG THANK YOU for all of your kind messages of congratulations and words of encouragement. It really is so very kind of you all!

    Chris, you say that "Plenty of others out there doing the same stuff if not more!". They might do the same but that doesn't matter. You do all the things that people need to be motivated and encouraged and supported by you.

    I think you are overly modest and shying away from your success as you don't like to be in the limelight. It's a typically Brit thing isn't it that we can take defeat but not praise or reward!

    Accept this pat on the back as recognition that WE find you motivating etc even if you don't BELIEVE that you are - not yet anyhow!

    Chris, the simplest way to find where you are listed as Motivator of the day is on the daily Spark Recipe page, towards the bottom of the email, on the right side, just above where you click to earn your SparkPoint for reading the email. Enjoy your day. You deserve it as much as any of us do!!

    I usually look at the motivator pages, but yours I explored, because it was well...MOTIVATING! Here's why:
    You are enjoying life NOW, not when you reach your goal weight.
    You are positive.
    You had the courage to attack a challenge that seems overwhelming to many of us much of the time.
    You have a wonderful sense of humor!

    I felt the same way & thought.......why does everyone else know how to find me & I don't know where they did? SO! I clicked on 'Community;' then I clicked on 'Success Stories' & then, finally 'Motivational SparkPages.' You'll have to scroll through lots of others' pages,'ll be there, just as I was.
    So..... emoticon on being the Motivator!!! I guess we motivate others more than we know. emoticon
