Save it! Walk away.

Tuesday, June 08, 2021

OK, life clutter.
I have to admit that I like to save written things. I like to read them later.
I'd like an easy way to save all my blogs, and the comments people have written on them. These are interactions that were/are valuable to me. And I really want them.

But, as SparkPeople closes down, I realize I have to just walk away. I won't have time to read all the little gems people left as comments. I won't have a way to save it.

I will just have to remember my whole spark experience as what it was, a positive force in my life that, like many other positive forces in my life, have to change, morph, move away, die, and all the other ways things like are transitory. This doesn't take away the power of the positive force. This doesn't remove the good it did me. And it won't remove the memories.

But heck, I'd still like to hold on to these blogs! Some were just silly on my part, but on some, people said amazing things. I like remembering the kindness of the people here.

It's what I'll carry with me as I walk away.

    @GRAMMACATHY even if Google can't find them, I'm wondering about the way back machine (pretty sure that's what it's called).

    Yes, my blogs are all over google already. Not sure if when they delete them they will still be out there or not.

    It's a sad time for those of us who lived here and were the heart of this site.

    I'm still trying to decide when I will "walk away". It will be before August 17th for sure and I will actually officially close my account when I do. I've deleted my blogs, saving only a couple that will have meaning later in my life. Even now, I ask, why bother with team points or recording my streaks. It will just disappear soon anyway. I won't walk less. I won't exercise less. I won't be less grateful for the good in my life. I will simply cease to record it. And I will move on to other things.

    You started up the team in January of 2015; six and a half years is a good run for a small team, don'cha

    Take care, my friend. emoticon
