I was sent several *sparks* today - thanks!!

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

I admit it, I have lost my *spark*

No, I am not quitting, I just feel burned out.

So thanks to MAWDOT with the first "*spark* pay it forward" and to all the *sparks* I have received since!

I'm giving out flames today, challenging you to give out 5 of your own, and so on, to create a wave of Sparking encouragement. Let's keep the flame burning and make 2012 a great year! Sent to me by another Spark Friend.

I have given several *sparks* today and hope to inspire others to pass it on!

Have a spark-alicious day!

    Dearest Linda,,,I am so very regretfully sorry you've lost ur spark. Hon, you are NOT ALONE !! It is a trend, we've been noticing on the team (I am SURE this has been ACROSS SP !) and its why we send out the "RECOMMITMENT" letter yesterday. Did you have a chance to read this yet? Will you PLEASE JOIN US in doing so? In doing so, we are in turn,,,, asking those who can,,,to COMMIT to trying to lose,,,and this will be TOMUCH probably for you,,,cos you do not have that much, so we'll reduce it for you,,,to 1lb,,,, and ask that by the end of this week,,, well we started this on Mon/Tues,,,, and you won't get this til Thurs,,,thats to LATE,,,so for the FOLLOWING week,, that you COMMIT to losing 1lb ,,,and YOU WILL have BACK UR SPARK in WORKING HARD FOR IT !! WOOHOOOOOO As we get the list on those committing, we WILL START to do more ! We want a count first. We want to get MOST of the TEAM in on this. Diane ML

    Just think of yourself as a glowing ember . . . that will burst into flame again at the appropriate time!!

    And: that's perfectly ok. You're a "banked fire". But not burnt out . . . no way!

    I am burned out too. I am hoping both the Winter Challenge and BLC18 will motivate me.

    Love you

    Oh Linda, you didn't lose it. Maybe you just misplaced it...you know, like your keys. You can find it, I know you can.

    I hope that you have found a little tiny spark and it glows bigger and bigger!! HUGS and hope things turn around.
