I am 36 years old and happily live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Growing up I was always athletic and very involved with Ukrainian Dancing, biking, swimming and only ate home cooked meals. After I got married in 2006 I went through some internal struggles. Depression, anxiety and a general feeling of loss and loneliness took over my life. Due to previous injuries I stopped all exercise and fun. Meals became fast food almost every night and things began to spiral out of control for me. I was on SPARK for a while before but because I wasn''t focused, I never took responsibility for my own actions and I never understood who or where I was in life. Things got much better in my life for awhile, then the depression and anxiety came back big time in 2017. After years of not feeling good, being in pain and the mental issues I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in early 2018. Now I am on a new life journey/ I need to find what I can do to help myself through this, what my new goals are and how I can move forward. But I am here to win it!

    In your day, surround yourself with friends..people who love you,
    motivate you, encourage you and just make you feel good about being you.
    ~ Brigitte Nicole

    Respect those friends who find time for you in their busy schedule. But really love those friends who never look at their schedule when you need them..

    “Spending good time with friends is a great way to keep you happy
    and young for the rest of your life.

    Friends are there for you in the bad times,
    but they’re also there to celebrate during the good times.”

    I don’t need my life to be perfect. I just want to be happy,
    with a few close friends who love me just the way I am.

    Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.

    A deep friend is like rainbow, when the perfect amount of happiness and tears
    are mixed....the result is a colorful bridge between two hearts .

    Nurture your friendship now and forever because good friends are rarer
    and true friends are rarer…

    No matter the weather , best friends always stick together.

    Every garden must have a rose ,every face must have a smile,
    every grass must have some dew, and every person must have a friend like you.

    A single rose can be my garden……A single friend, my world…..

    We have three types of friends in life.....
    Friends for a Reason....Friends for a Season & Friends for a Lifetime

    Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems....
    look for someone who won’t let you to face them alone.

    A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you
    when you have forgotten how it goes.

    The one who has a good friend,does’t need any mirror.

    People should be blessed in life with friends who are both
    mirrors and shadows...mirrors don’t lie and shadow never leave.
