After a Rough Start: Living Up to My Name

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

It's been a rough start here at SP.
I apologize because I feel as though when people see my page and then read my blog, they may feel as if they've been duped.

However, I chose my screen name for a reason and that reason is because I do have many problems to overcome. My names helps me to remember that Happy is as Happy does.

My name and the party balloons help me to keep moving forward, to not close up, shut down, run away, or live in denial. Instead, I can face my problems head-on, knowing that if I just stand my ground and keep moving forward, I will overcome them. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. And I am learning to embrace fear, take it's energy from it, and use it to compel me forward toward physical, mental, and spiritual health.

I like that. It's a high that isn't destructive.

And I feel happy when I have overcome my fear and lived up to my name.

Party on! emoticon

    You never have to apologize for the struggle!

    (but if you use salty language you will probably have to say sorry for that...)

    Old habits dont go away without a fight, and so to the worthy struggle! emoticon

    I think YOU have a great name and attitude towards it. Living life is not all fun and games, but when we have reminders around us (like your name and Spark Page) we can look at each day with a smile and keep moving forward. Hope your day is a good one. Stay happy and smile..... emoticon
