FRIENDS~ There 2 Lift Me Up at My Weakest Moments!!

Friday, October 23, 2009

Happy Friday Spectacular Diva's!!!!

There is a Proverb "The time to make friends is before you need them." I must honestly say that I never knew how many people lives I impacted on a daily basis until I wanted to walk away from Spark on yesterday. I mean I really emotionally broke down & I came on to read all of the outpouring letters of support & emails that were sent to me. It was at that moment that I knew I had real friends, people who genuinely cared. People who said they read my blogs everyday for support, they didn't leave comments but said they just wanted to be uplifted by what I had to say.

I was blown away b/c I guess I took it for granted but I really appreciated everyone who didn't give up on Cassandra, those who wouldn't allow me to give up on myself. That is true friends. emoticon I know this is suppose to be a site about weight loss but it is sooooo much more than that. This site is forging friendships & Spark is a part of my life. I might can't call my friends but if I post on Spark I know that at least 1 person will reach out to me.

Yes, yesterday I did eat horribly but today I am on track. Me & Eric were able to get past the deadbeat situation & appreciate all of the comments that I received. Me & Eric are going to ignore the deadbeat dad & not let him tear us apart b/c we realized that is exactly what he wants. The truth is that he hates to see me with another man, a GOOD Man!!! A man who has stepped in & being a good role model to my 2 boys. So I will no longer let the deadbeat have control over my emotions!

I realized that I let him ruin my whole day & made me lose my self control & a moment of self worth. He is not worth it or is anyone else worth me self-destructing thru food!! So today I am back on the program & really have to step it up today. I am going to workout today & eat healthy!!

    This is the kind of blog I enjoy reading from you. Dont let that deadbeat ex-dad get you down. He is just jealous that you do have Eric. Way to go my diva friend.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

    I am so glad you are still sparking! We all gain when we stick together - oops, I mean we all lose when we stick together - I mean, well, you know what I mean - we're meant to stick together! LOL

    Besides, I don't know if I can get through a week without my daily Diva tips!

    Wonderful!! I'm late, but do stay--you have such a wonderful way with words; we need you. Yes, take back the power--I'm dealing with something major right now myself--so major it requires attorneys & I can not discuss it on line--which is funny, because I would really like to--all I can tell you is I feel your frustration & you wouldn't believe the thoughts that have gone thru my mind just know, many of us on here have things in our lives we'd love to kick to the curb & instead have to learn to deal with for a period of sorry, really.

    I already said what I needed to but here it is again. You are a strong, powerful woman and no one can control your life unless you let them. Grab onto your inner diva and kick the jerk to the curb!

    Hugs to you my friend!

    Yeah for you Cassandra!

    Don't let the deadbeat have control over your life. He wants you to be as miserable as he apparently is. People who genuinely care about us want us to be happy...and he's not doing that for you.

    Tell Eric we all appreciate how much he cares about you and your boys. Life is about sticking it out when times get tough.

    You two rock!

    Hey Sistagirl, I hear you girl and I will toast to this blog. It is crazy how the actions of another can cause us to stray form our path. That is, if we let them. From what I have read about this Eric of yours, he seems like a real good catch. Hold on tight girl, lol, for you deserve only the best that life has to offer......
