My Spark Friend Playblues22 . . .inspiration!
Wednesday, July 14, 2010
The last few weeks, I have been feeling pretty down. My blog posts have reflected it and I certainly have been wallowing in self pity. "I am losing weight too slow, or not at all"," I am discouraged by my job", "Argued with my boss", "Over indulged and paid the price", "hurt at Physical Therapy and tired of this injury!"- you get the idea.
Today my Spark Friend Playblues22 posted the blog, "I Feel Good" and it was a wake up call for me. I am in charge of my destiny - if I don't like the path I am traveling, I can change it. I am the boss of me - if I am unhappy at work, only I can find a way to be happy with the position I am in or work to change it. If I am unhappy with my diet and fitness results - only I can find the path to solutions. If my injury is prohibiting me from doing the exercises I usually do, or want to do - only I can find alternatives.
This is not to say that I can't, and won't, lean on my Spark Friends now and then. I also want them to lean on me when they need a ear to chew, or a friend to cry with, or a cheerleader when there are successes! I am here for you folks!
For today, insprired by Playblues22 - I feel good about me, who I am and where I am going. Even if it isn't the speed I wish, or the final path I want to place my feet on - I feel good about me.
