A lesson learned is never wasted....at least that's what I believe. I have been on Spark for a while now. To be honest, I didn't think it would work. I had been down this road so many times and didn't have one more devastation in me. I had been hurt so many times that I joined Sparkpeople not really believing. My attitude was "if I don't really try, I won't really get hurt". To be honest, that had been my motto in more than one thing in life. I had let down my spark teams with my half hearted effort but didn't even realise it at the time. I had also let down myself. I crashed and burned and left SP.
But then a change happened. I am not really sure how, but I began to love myself as I am. Instead of waiting until "then" to be happy, I decided to be happy now. And when I became happy as I am, I decided to make changes that would show that I am loving myself. That energy built upon itself. I may have crashed and burned, but I have come back from the ashes renewed. I have learned that failure is as great of a lesson as success, I have learned that a slip is a great teacher, and I have learned that love is more powerful than fear. In loving myself, I have become The Phoenix and I am loving myself till my dreams come true.
