There's a part of every living thing

that wants to become itself:
the tadpole into the frog,
the chrysalis into the the butterfly,
a damaged human being into a whole one.
That is spirituality.-Ellen Bass.

All serious daring starts from within.
Eudora Welty.

It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    How are you doing? Any good news to report?

    You can do it! I noticed you mentioned emotional eating in your profile, I have a HUGE problem with that. Anytime I get sad, I want to drown it either chocolate ice cream or some girly drink with a million calories. Lately I've tried to work out instead. What do you do?
