Content and seemingly absent

Monday, February 13, 2012

So, I'm going to open this blog with a big ol' apology. Sorry for not being the Spark cheerleader I used to be. I've been a more passive member of this community for the past few months. I'm still here, Sparking every day, I'm just not being as vocal as I used to be. Sorry for that.

I guess the reason why I've been a little quieter is that my time is a lot more precious now. I started dating a really great guy a few months ago and, since it's long distance, he takes up a lot of my time (hours and hours on the phone and Skyping). Don't worry, I'm not falling into that typical "I'm happy now so I'm letting myself go" mentality. I've still been working out like crazy. In fact, I've stepped up my fitness efforts lately. The BF thinks I'm gorgeous and perfect as is but I want to continue to get healthier for me first and foremost. This is the first time in my life that I've been with a guy who just makes me feel comfortable in my own skin. I don't know if it's because of all the changes I made before I met him or what. Believe me, I'm not complaining.

And, just a side note for all the single ladies out there, I truly did meet this guy when I wasn't looking. I spent the past year or so improving myself and not even thinking about trying to get into a relationship. I finally was content with who I was inside and out and that's when I was open to meeting a real man and not some stupid boy (although technically my BF is a *young* man emoticon). After all the losers I've allowed into my life in the past, it's a very welcome change to be with a good guy for once. The best part is that my BFF loves my BF and has actually known him for a couple of years so she can fully vouch for him. Anyway, just felt like I owed my SP buddies a little update. Hope everyone else is doing well. I'm still cheering for all of you and will try to be more vocal about it.

    OOOHHH a new boyfriend! I think it's awesome that you're with a great guy like him. You deserve it.

    And for the record, you've always been a very supportive Spark friend and I really appreciate you. I didn't notice that you were being passive at all!

    I met my husband the same way, right after I decided I needed a break from dating for a while!
