I never mean to seem like I am not thankful for people in my life, things that I have, or opportunities that I am offered. Unfortunately too often I am so busy trying to get through my day that I don't take the time to acknowledge all the things that made my world go round during the day.

This journey isn't just about my getting healthy physically, but also mentally, and spiritually. I felt if I was going to go working on the outside than I should just work on the inside as well since they are interconnected and what happens to one will greatly affect the other.

I own and watch the movie "The Secret." It is often hard to believe that the law of attraction is at work and I can't say that I can always think positively, but I can sure try my best. One of the things that they encourage is to be thankful in all aspects of your life. Being thankful brings about positive feelings that re-enforce your positive thinking.

I am going to try to say the Optimist's Creed each morning when I wake up and each night before I go to bed. I have been making sure to be thankful for those around me in my life.

So here is to being thankful...Thank you to each and everyone out there in the big spark's world...those just getting started - cause you make me wanna keep going, those pushing to their goals - cause you walking this journey with me ensures that I don't feel alone, and those that have reached their goals - you're prove that I can make it too!

I may not have met each and everyone of you yet, but I know your out there and for that I am greatly thankful.

Have a blessed Friday.

    There is no better place to start than from within, that has made a world of difference for me. It's a long, hard journey and we have to BELIEVE we're worth it every single day.

    Whether it's sharing good news or bad news, struggles or celebrations, it's nice to have the support that is found here.

    I am thankful for you too, Sparkbuddy!
