Something FABULOUS is out there, taking shape, emerging, peeking, calling your name.
Oh, so true. Yesterday, I had a great trip to the Dentist. Yes, I know, it isn't often that you have a great trip to the Dentist, but I have had four missing teeth for 4 months. I FINALLY got my new teeth yesterday, and aside from getting used to having a mouth full of teeth again, they are FABULOUS. I also have an awesome Dentist.
I got implants, and the procedure is a long one.
The point is, that I sat down in the Dentist office to wait for my turn, and a woman in a walker came and sat next to me. She looked fairly disabled. We started talking, and after a while, she told me she was a former Sparker. I said that I was a current Sparker and had lost a bunch of weight, and left it very vague.
This woman told me that she gave up. She said that she hurt all the time with arthritis, and could not exercise, and couldn't go to the store very often, so she couldn't eat fresh fruits and vegetables. I said, well you could have food delivered. No, it's too expensive, she said. I said, you could swim, as that is great for arthritis. She said that she couldn't find a suit that would fit. I mentioned this one website that has a million suits in all shapes and sizes. She said that they were too expensive. I said, to make you feel better, it is worth the cost. She said, I can't do it.
I though to myself, being overweight and unhealthy is too expensive and too hard on you. She was very nice, and appreciated an ear. When I went into the Dentist, I shook her hand and wished her well.
It made me fairly despondent. What is the designator for us that are succeeding? Is it will? Desire? Fortitude? I don't really know, other than the fact that I am so delighted that I have it, and it makes me feel fabulous. I wished I could have given some to this woman, but she was unwilling to meet me halfway.
I hope you all find your inner fabulous today, and aren't in a Dentist's office a couple years from now, out of shape and saying you were a former Sparker. It makes me too sad.
PLEASE Spark on.
