Pay it forward!/Spread the spark!

Sunday, October 05, 2008

ITs time for me to write again because I have been feeling like giving up on sparks completely for the past few days! I have been hitting a low mood and struggling to make myself care about myself enough to stick with things! WHew,thank goodness for the lessons I have been learning here or I would have given up! Instead I started posting to all my friends to wish them well and it had such a positive effect on me that I am back on track before completely falling off the track! Ive learned to journal my emotions ,to write down what is going on in my head and to lean on my spark friends when I start to feel the need for support! IT really works! When you take the time to let people know that you are struggling ,they are always there to boost you up and help you find that strength that you need to keep at it! I have also found that as I pay the kindness forward ,I get so much kindness and love paid back to me that it just feels soooo good to keep trying!

Thankyou my spark friends ! Simple little comments that you may not even think of as important have saved me yet again from allowing myself to spiral in to a long period of misery and sabotage!

Believe me when I tell you if I can continue to do well then so can many of you ! My lows are so very difficult but by using the many resources available to me here at sparks and leaning on my spark friends I am learning to overcome the urges to overeat and give up on myself! I have learned that I deserve better and I insist on being good to myslef! It feels good to be finally getting this right!

Lean on your friends and pay the kindness forward or as we say here Spread the spark.........it really does help!
hugs Tina

    Hey Tina, glad to know that you are feeling better and are staying on track. I have not logged on for a while myself. I kind of fell of the wagon and lost contact with sp. I am back and trying to touch bases with everyone again. the support from fellow sparkers is great. Hope to hear from you soon. keep up the positive attitude.

    HEY, NO GIVING UPALLOWED HERE! YOU HAVE HELPED SO MANY PEOPLE, AND WE CARE JUST AS MUCH ABOUT YOU! YOU ARE VERY VERY IMPORTANT AND YOU NEED TO LOVE YOURSELF AS YOU LOVE OTHERS. IF IT WASN'T FOR YOU I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD BE DOING TONIGHT. OR WHAT KIND OF WEEKEND I WOULD OF HAD.

    IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN YOU! YOU HAVE TO STICK AROUND AND WATCH ME FLOURISH.

    YOU KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND KEEP UP YOUR CHIN! YOU ARE A VERY BEAUTIFUL PERSON FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

    DON'T BE AFRAID TO USE ME AS A SOUNDING BOARD. I WANT TO BE HERE FOR YOU!

    LOVE YA,
