Sparkchanges.... let's get over it
Thursday, May 19, 2016
Sure, I was mad yesterday when I opened my Sparkpage and saw ALL those links everywhere. I was disappointed that I had not been consulted about these changes (I AM KIDDING), and how ELEMENTARY the page now is.
I realized something yesterday, though. Spark needs to make these pages easy to use, for the new users. Us old hands knew how to do everything, and didn't need this. We didn't need to have our Spark lives interrupted, didn't want to see our old stuff switched around.
Aren't we here though, because WE changed, or are changing? We are here to incorporate change into our daily lives, to make our lives happier and healthier, to be BETTER?
Isn't that what Spark is trying to do? Make this a better site. Yes, it is tough to make changes, we all know how hard it is. It is tough to make a change permanent, especially when nobody bothered to consult me. Kidding again.
But, often, change is a positive turn in our lives. I did contact support yesterday, and I asked them if I could have my old page back. I also asked for a few things that they never got done, and probably never will. They answered me and said no. OK.
Regardless, I'm staying, and I applaud Spark for trying to be more intuitive for new members. Think about when you first got here and didn't know how to do anything. This page would have been a lifesaver. Let's get over ourselves, and embrace change, as we all know it's a positive step in the right direction.
There are SO many more important things for you to worry about today. Make loving yourself your first priority.
