I have fallen off the wagon so many times that my head has a permanant dent in it! LOL But I get back on and carry through! Hooray for Spark People!

It's so easy to get distracted.

I'm back on the wagon and trying again.

For me one of the things that has really helped me get inspiration back was buying The Spark. I read some of the reviews on Amazon... and really I'm so much more impressed than even the reviews that convinced me to buy it.

Just a thought.

At any rate - the mistakes I was making before was expecting too much of myself. Setting my goals too high and then feeling like a failure when I didn't make them. For now I'm setting them low at totally attainable levels so that I get to feel GOOD when I meet them.

I know you posted in January - but I just thought a quick note on this post might help get your spark reignited! emoticon

You are never alone when you are with Spark People, and although life has ups and downs it is the number of times you get back up that make the difference. Good for you to start climbing up again. I hope and pray that you are feeling better and will learn that your love for yourself is all you need to make a difference.

Good luck and keep dreaming!

Welcome back!

I've been in that same dark place periodically, and was just coming out of one of those times when I discovered SP. In my case, I've found it's often my own thoughts and the way I perceive things that gets me into trouble.

I'm glad you saw some light and here's to finding your own SPARK! emoticon

Welcome back again! Everyone is always here. I usually say we are all just a point and click away. You are not alone in your struggle. Be happy and hang in there and when you feel weak again call on us.

You'll never achieve your dreams if they don't become goals.

Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend.

Welcome back! What matters is that you care enough to keep trying! This is definitely the place!

Dwelling on past mistakes does you no good. You can change everything today if you want to, or you can keep living the life you've always lived. It's up to you, but remember this: every moment is an opportunity to change your life.
~Aaron Chavez

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

Well…where does one start really?? I have fallen off of the wagon…and been run over by several other wagons in the mean time. I have been hit by the holiday food wagon…the beer wagon…and the low self esteem wagon. It has really been a rough holiday season for me. I lost my SPARK! I have done this several times now since discovering spark people. But today is a NEW DAY!! I am here to find the SPARK again.
In the past couple of months life has been VERY challenging. It was a challenge to have a great Christmas and not go overboard. Not go overboard on spending, food, and drink. Now that it is in the past there isn’t anything I can do to change it. So from this point forward I am going to change my tomorrows! Every one of them!! My new years resolution is to simply be the best person I can be. That means a Mom , faithful and loving wife, a good daughter and sister and friend. The only thing that can help me most in doing this is to ACCEPT the person I am.
It shouldn’t matter to me that I don’t like the person I am on the outside. But it does. I thought I was less vain than that. But I AM NOT! And that is ok. I love the person who I am on the inside. I attribute every bit of this to my wonderful parents. They raised me to be true to my values and morals. They raised me to be a kind and caring individual. They raised me to know that there IS true lasting love out there and that they are a picture of it!
Marriage is hard. But being alone and without love is even harder. I am fortunate to be blessed with a wonderful husband (who comes with a few flaws) and 3 loving sons. Then why is it that I had a point over the holidays that I wanted to throw in the towel on life. I wanted to quit. In my mind…no one would miss me anyway. I stayed awake and looked at a bottle of Oxycontin and sleeping pills that I was SURE had my name on them. But in the end I realized that I loved myself and my life more than that! All of the things that I thought were terrible in my life were just bumps in the road…they could be fixed from this point forward. It was a lonely time for me. I thought I had no one! Although I knew that at any minute of the day I could come to this board and find someone, if they knew me or not, that would truly understand and care about what I was feeling.
I am looking forward to the friendships that I will create in my life from this point on. I have a lot of years left!!! I would go on and on but I have this bright orange book that is calling my name on the end table now. It is time for me to find my SPARK so I can light my FIRE!!
