The First Day (of the rest of my life)

my journal entry for this week:

Dear Juls- " through the rabbit hole"
The first night I joined I had no idea what I was capable of. I had no idea what i was looking for. Then the trackers started to guide me and give me a plan. I set goals. Then I had a journey mapped out and destination! I didn't feel motivated to start this, I can bookmarks it for the future....suddenly SP members sent me welcomes and i froze! I don't need an audience to watch me fail. But i read their supporting words and it lifted me up. This isn't just another tool or app I will use for collecting data....I just joined a team. Wow. What does this mean?
I felt connected. They are watching yes...because they my companions traveling with me.
And that is the moment when I finally became accountable for my negitive behavior and choices! I faced it, felt it, And forgave it!
I have a long way to go and I'm not carrying that stuff!

    that's what gives it the "spark difference" it really does seem like a team instead of doing it on our own!

    'Together we can do what we could never do alone.' That's an oldie but a goodie from OA. It speaks to the power of one addict helping another. There is magic in the practice of people who share a particular struggle, lifting one another to greatness. I am surrounded by greatness here and I know it's the key to my success and well being!
    Thank you lovely ladies for all you have done to move me along this road!

    love you all...

    The social support is, to me, the *magic* of SparkPeople. It's really amazing the effect those comments and connections can have! Have a great week!
