I takes a Spark Buddy to smack some sense into you!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Ok so I have always agreed the more you Spark the better you do. Well I haven't really been Sparking and I have been doing horribly!!!! I am angry and still wallowing in a pity party from losing my home to Super Storm Sandy. Today I received a Spark Goodie from a dear Spark Buddy that literally turned on the light bulb for me emoticon It also gave me the kick emoticon in the pants I needed.

Yes my anger and pity party are holding me back but I am allowing it to. I am the one who has control and not that horrible Hurricane Sandy. I have to knock it off and pull up my big girl panties and move forward.

emoticon I am working very hard to regain my Spark. I am accepting the challenge to get my Spark back by whatever means it takes emoticon !

I have started a new thread in one of my Spark Team. The Weight Loss Café, for Daily Motivations to reflect on. I need this to find my way back and I think a lot of my Team members can also benefit from it.

Here is today's entry which really speaks to my heart:

Made to make a difference

Doing only what is easy and convenient, comfortable and free of challenge, doesn’t get you very far. Chasing after something for nothing ends up getting you nothing of real value.

In order to experience true fulfillment in any undertaking, you must invest yourself in it. It is your active participation and contribution to life that makes it so good to live.

If you continually take the easy way out, avoiding effort, challenge and commitment, you’ll end up being very disappointed. You are made to make a difference, so embrace every opportunity to do so.

You are here to participate, not just to observe. The true joy you feel will come not from meaningless possessions or empty pleasures, but from creating and expressing and experiencing the goodness of life in your own unique way.

Don’t waste your precious time in a fruitless attempt to get something for nothing. In every moment there are plenty of opportunities to create real value that flows from the authentic beauty of who you are.

Your deepest desires and your most difficult problems are challenging you to make a positive difference. Do yourself a big favor, accept the challenge, make the effort, and create the true fulfillment that is your destiny.

— Ralph Marston
