A Quote for my Spark Friends!
Friday, October 22, 2010
I was reading the other day, saw this quote and thought of Sparkpeople and my buddies!
We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
After reading this, I transcended into a state of reflecting on the fact that we have so many varying weight loss goals, and reasons for making lifestyle changes. One of the many joys and rewards of being sparks is that we are all united by 'sailing on a voyage of discovery.' We are all so beautifully unique. Through this journey, we are discovering things every day about ourselves; habits(which may take time to break), new ways to grow, or when to forgive ourselves and move on, or when to push a bit harder. We have our own 'individual maps' to guide us. But I find solace in knowing I have Spark friends and this community to help me when I need an extra hand.
Thank you all for your support and sincerity!!!
