We Can!

Saturday, April 28, 2012

I just read a blog by JOHNTJ1--- He said, to tell yourself that you CAN do this-
He kinda asked us to describe ourselves----
Well, if I did that, I would say----overweight-----old---I worry about everything---
These are all negative things-----
So, why do they come to the forefront first??
Why do we have so much trouble accepting that we have good points too--?-

So I will try again to describe myself----
I love to smile---I am mostly a happy person---I am kind, and I have a wonderful family--I do enjoy people----
BUT--(the negative is creeping in)---I LOVE to eat----EVERYTHING----
I should say, ""I am learning to eat properly""---that I have met some pretty nice Spark friends---I am learning to control my weight---

So----Positive thinking here ---LOL-----
And , ""Tell yourself that you CAN do this!""--
I love you Sparklers---
Happy Saturday-

    Spark sister, you're blog is right on. I think we are able to see the good in others, the positive in others, but we're just too "close" to us sometimes to be able to step back and see our own positives.

    But it IS something that I am going to work on . . . being positive with myself, being gentle with myself, being kind to myself.

    Thank you for that much needed message.

    Love you too, fellow Sparker . . . my virtual spark sister!! HEE HEE

    Hi Lynda, You are so right. We don't take time to see our positives. We only see our negatives. I am going to try to do what you did......Let's see, I am friendly, compassionate, wow, this is hard! I like to smile, too. You are correct, We Can Do This! I love your lion and lamb. Indi says hello and hugs to all. emoticon emoticon
