Over 2 years of Maintenance YEAH!!!
Wednesday, June 04, 2014
Well Sparkpeeps I have been in maintenance for over 2 years now and it feels WONDERFUL. I have learned so much about this process and about me. But one of the biggest lessons I've learned is NOT TO BEAT MYSELF UP when I mess up.
A couple of weeks ago I went on a road trip and I am not good with long road trips. If I am not driving then it is hard for me to sleep and after seeing miles and miles of freeways, cows and vegetation I am extremely BORED. With boredom I start eating. So on this road trip I ate so much junk and in the past I would have beaten myself up and been so mad that I did that but this time I just regroup and decided I needed to have a plan of action for the next road trip. Since the community choir I sing with is starting to go national, these road trips will happen more frequently and I know that the next time I need to do better.
I thank GOD for this transformation and the most important lesson I have learned is how much my Sparkpeeps and the people that support my efforts are to me. Everytime I wanted to give up or try to be lazy and slack off there is ALWAYS someone there to encourage me to keep going. I thank GOD everyday for placing you all in my life. Love YA Smoochez!!!
