Spark Changes

Wednesday, September 02, 2015

Over the past month, I've been increasingly frustrated with my personal "spark" life. I won't get into the specifics, but I've recently made some drastic changes. I stepped down from leadership in one team, and dropped all of my teams with the exception of one. I'm trying to be more purposeful with my "online" time. I spend way too much time on social media sites (of which I include spark) and I need to step back. I keep debating on deactivating my facebook page, until October 31st because I love seeing everyone's kiddo's dressed up. haha

The other big changes I made on here is I made my page offline & cut back on my number of friends. I'm making my page online again though. I DO enjoy the interaction with my spark friends. :)

Hope everyone is doing well!

    I've had to do the same thing before. It can become overwhelming and take up time that could be used for something more exercise.

    emoticon Good for you for taking that step. Do what ever you need to do to make it all work for you. You're here to get healthy for you...not anyone else.

    emoticon Motivation is important to give to each other, but if it consumes our time and interrupts our weight-loss program & efforts, then it's being counter-effective, and loses the very purpose of it.

    emoticon Sometimes all I have time to do is a quick blog on my own site. I don't have time to always read & comment on other sparker's blogs, and it makes me feel selfish & sad, but it's not a selfish thing, it's just what 'time' permits. When I do have time, I go back on a later date and see how everyone is doing & give goodies & comments.

    emoticon So don't feel bad. I think we ALL have this very issue ourselves.

    Stay're here to reach your goals. emoticon

    I try to prioritize my online interactions too. I have only left one group, but all of my others I don't visit. I don't have as much time as I used to to be able to interact, but when I do it motivates me, and I hope that I am helping others too.

    I understand from where you are coming. It is very easy to get caught up in spending a lot of time on social media, including Spark. I am cutting back on SP some, as I don't have time to do all the other things I want to do.
