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.

    You are so right. When the buck stops, it stops with us, so we are truly the ones in charge of our own lives. On the other hand Spark Friends are just that - friends; and friends are there through thick and thin. Glad you found a friend in Playblue. Good luck and much success on this journey.
