Magic Carpet Ride!!!

Who wants to join me "ON the Magic Carpet Ride".??
We're not talking about drugs, or any hallucinogen, or even cannabis. No, this carpet is fueled by pure joy and exhilaration of life. This ride I am on is a dream come true.
It's a pretty smooth ride,so far. Oh! There's been a few bumps , minor detours, but nothing to slow me down.
Lately with all the added Star power of the Spark friends and members, the ride has become magical.
I know I am a strong, determined women. I have taken on this battle of becoming fit and healthy for life head on But I realize I can never do it alone.
The best day in my life was signing up at Spark. Then I met others who shared the same strengths, desires as I did. But also the same insecurities and doubts that we could change for the better. But together something magical has happened. We have come to depend and rely on each other. We look for support. We need support. No man is an island. And the Spark friends and members are there in every way to give that support.
I can never thank everyone enough for embracing me and my journey .
All I have to do is read the lovely comments and see the page of GOLD STARS, to feel the warmth and sincerity of each and everyone of my Spark friends.
So if my Magic Carpet runs a little low on fuel, it will get a boost from the Star power on my Spark page. Thank you all for being there.
I got an encouraging boost on my fitness ability this week.
Back in May I bought hand held weights. I tried 5 lbs, way to heavy. I went down the line, ended up at 1 lbs weights. They were still heavy. But I bought them anyway. What else could I do? One lb was the lowest weight.
I have been using the weights for all this time. getting stronger every week.
Couple of days ago I finished doing two set of 10 reps each and dropped the dumbbells down in my lap. I had my glasses on, since I was watching a TV show.
I need glassed to see clearly. I happened to look down and saw a 3 on the end of the weight . All of a sudden I realized I was using 3 lbs weight all this time. I had no idea I could use that weight. Some times accidents ar a good thing.
So you see sometimes we can do things we had no I idea that we are capable of doing.
The weight had been misplaced, I bought them because the sign said 1 lb.
I later went to the kitchen and got a pound can and compared it and had to laugh. What a difference.
The 1 lb is so light. I wonder why I didn't realize that those 3 lbs were heavier than a pound??
You might know I am a believer in signs, fate, destiny, astrology.
Yesterday I was out running errands. I had to stop at every red light going across town. I can see a few red lights, but dozens??? No, that has to be a sign.
But what could it mean?
Maybe slow down I am going through life too fast.
Or just slow down and be careful.
Of course I spent the next hour or so trying to figure out what all those red lights meant. Oh I also had to stop for a train. Lot's of stops.
I did hit green lights on the way back., with just a few red ones.
Oh I know some will laugh at this , but its just too strange.
I wonder too does anyone drive some place and get there and don't remember the drive. It's like you were in another place, or a trance. You get there and wonder if you followed all the signs and slowed in school zones. It's like you are driving on auto pilot.
OK, I am not on drugs. I don't smoke any of that funny stuff either. Never liked it. Smile!!
I'll close this with a quote that is so true.
"Our lives improve only when we take chances. And the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves." W. Anderson.
