My solution for NO RESOLUTION

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I didn’t make a New Year resolution nor any promises to myself. I didn’t beat myself up on things that didn’t get done or accomplished for last year. I didn’t end my year like so many others in a sad, bad mood. Why you ask, what is different and my one word answer is Sparks. I’ve learned so many things on this site and have come so far inside and out. But the number one change is positivity in my life.... I’m no longer a half empty glass gal. I’ve finally learned that being, doing and acting positive will get me more results, create more happiness and well being than any thing else I could do for myself I don’t wait for things to happen. If I want things to change I now know it begins with me having to make the moves not just wishing but doing. So for me no resolution this year for I found my solution. Instead of wishing to lose weight again for a new year I joined the Jump Start Challenge and with a bunch of Spark buddies we are POSITIVLEY making change.... Are you still just wishing? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I sorta wanted to make a resolution, but never solidified anything. That may or may not be indicative of how well I would have stuck to one. emoticon So I just decided to keep going as I have been. Making slow but sure progress toward a healthier life.

    You are so right about the positive attitude. It helps us stay positive when there is hope in sight. My exposure to Spark has definitely given me hope. It's been quite a process, but I no longer see getting healthy as a destination. It is a journey, and I'm on it!

    I'm so glad you suggested the January Challenge. I had been looking at another, but honestly, it was too long and involved. (I have no desire to blog every day let alone commit to it for 3 months!) This challenge is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! emoticon

    I actually did make a resolution this year, for a change. Mine is an hour of TV a day. Since there are a handful of shows I actually watch (Downton, Walking Dead, Big Bang...) I can roll over minutes watching say two shows in an evening -Sundays- and none on another day. Got sick to death of having cable news on etc. I read papers and magazine and can get news online, don't need to listen to all the depressing crap that seems to get hyped 24/7 turning current events into some kind of reality show.

    I'm trying to improve both body and mind.

    BTW, thanks for the goodie. You may well win this month as yesterday was not a good day food-wise. Sort of snapped, making the mistake of bringng 2 boxes of granola bars into the house. Let's just say, having them around isn't a problem anymore... emoticon

    You said it so well! Spark has done the exact same thing for me. Doesn't it feel good to feel so much joy and positivity despite problems in our lives? I still get down, frustrated, worried about my son, etc, etc but I feel so much more alive today than I was three years ago!

    emoticon Good for you!
