One step at a time
Monday, August 12, 2013
Today when I checked my email I was surprised to receive a blog comment on a blog I posted some years ago when I first joined SP. Her words truly motivated me and caused me to reflect on the accomplishments in my life. I am truly thankful to Spark People.com. I have been away for a while. I really don't know what happened I just drifted away. I found Facebook and many of my friends I met here were also on FB. We chatted but it was not the same. I am taking my life, one step at a time. I have suffered some tremendous setbacks however I still have my health. I have been disappointed but still God has blessed me with good health. I have my challenges with elevated cholesterol but overall as of my last physical I am in good health. Why the low days? Most of my struggle continue to be emotional. I struggle to stay positive and as long as I am around people I do well. It is when I am alone with me that the low tides roll into my life. Well, today marked a change. Thanks to a fellow Sparkie that took the time out to comment on my blog. She also gave me a Spark Goodie with an encouraging note. Thanks to her motivation, I walked to the bank and back which is over two miles round trip. At first, I thought, I must be crazy, but I get taking one step at a time. I made it to the bank and back in forty five minutes. OKay. I haven't walked in a while however I stay active working around the house. I did notice a few little kinks here and there but I made it. I plan to continue to walk until I am back into my regular routine. I remember how walking helped my emotional state a great deal. It is so easy to get stuck in a rut! It is hard to pull yourself out alone! Therefore, my heartfelt thanks to each of you. Your words made a difference.....
So I wish to thank each of you that have taken time to comment on my page, give me a goodie, and comment on my blog since I have returned. It seems unreal that I started back in 2008 and thankfully I have found my way back.
When I am feeling discouraged, tired, or sad I will reflect back on this day and say, Girl,, you can do it, one step at a time.
God is Good All of the time!
