Meeting tonight!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Our new writing group has our second meeting tonight, and I can't wait! I'm proud to be a charter member of this little group and look forward to growing as a writer. I've never written much for fun, self-expression, or to communicate ideas just because I wanted to. I write regularly, but that's in my role as a teacher or student. I'm glad I have some colleagues who value writing for ourselves as a great way to model for our students, kind of what brought me to spark in the first place.

What amazes me more, though, is how spark has affected all of my life, not just my weight. My brain is getting more oxygen with more exercise and perking up a little each day. I'm feeling better in too many big ways to count: overcoming my commitment phobia, confronting issues that used to drive me to depression, smiling so much my cheeks hurt...the list goes on and on! Thank you sparkfriends!

    Thank you! Your post really shows how far-reaching the effects of joining the community can be. I'm starting to notice some changes too, although I don't think I'd ever be brave enough to join a writing group. And you're a charter member? Impressive. Hope your second meeting was a great one.
