Today is the 300th day I a row that I have logged into Sparkpeople. Throughout these 300 days I've learned so much about myself... learning the hows, whens, and whys was a necessary part in my journey in order to make changes and move forward.
I've learned that, among many things I use to keep myself in my "comfort zone", I've also learned somewhere along the way to use food as a way of coping with feelings which also, in my mind, is a form of "comfort zone".
Yesterday I posted a blog which was by Possitivehope... she included a link to a webpage which I found super helpful. Reading the web page made me realize that some of the things I do are holding me in my "comfort zone"... not food things but other actions I do in my daily life.
The other day I had an idea about something... right away a negative thought popped into my head about the idea. I thought to myself "that's probably not a good idea because _______ might happen". I forecasted failure before I even began. Fear of failure? Comfort zone? I will work on this now.... moving forward!
I've posted the link to the web page at the bottom of this page for those who are interested or may have missed it yesterday.
I am thankful for my many new Sparkfriends .... you all are truly gems of inspiration. I have learned so much from all of you through reading your blogs. Thanks so much everyone!
Spark on everyone!
