I found spark people in september 2009 and I am totally fascinated - there are not many days that I have not logged in so far.

I have found that support from people who are struggling with the same issues as me, really helps.

In new year 2014 I am struggling and taking two step forwards, one step back and making great plans for 2014...

I had the recommendation to put up some meaningful quotes and here goes:

If you spend all your time looking for Him,
you might miss Her when She shows up.

Neale Donald Walsch

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur
when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort,
that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

M. Scott Peck

"Destiny is not a matter of chance;
it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for;
it is a thing to be achieved."

William Jennings Bryan

"When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share
our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand."

Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude

'Come to the edge', he said.

Oprah Winfrey

A life lacking the emotional upheavals
of depression and despair, fear and
anxiety, grief and sadness, anger and
the agony of forgiving, confusion and
doubt, criticism and rejection, will not
only be useless to ourselves, it will be
useless to others.

Thank you for your comments on my blogs!
Yeah, what if there is no such thing as truth... I often think I should just 'go by intuition'. But I do, also, want to know what research has to say.

Sometimes the healthiest thing I can do for myself is to admit that I am not perfect. I am human. I make mistakes. Today I will have the courage to look the truth in the face, admit my errors and achievements, appreciate my growth. and make amends where I have done harm. I will not attempt to manage or control what is beyond my powers. I will dedicate myself to managing my own life, and only mine.

There is only one corner of the world you can be sure of improving.and that is your own self.

As I look at my fitness, nutrition and personal goals, I seek progress not perfection. I admit I am not perfect, but I am making positive changes and I rejoice in my growth as I seek to eliminate my character defects. Strength comes from facing adversity and not giving in, not surrendering, not giving up.

Thank you! Yes, I had been coloring for over 55 years! Didn't know what shade of grays it would grow out to but figured it was time for this great granny to find out. I am pleased and really loving NOT coloring it! Smiles, Joy

P.S. I like it better than before too; I'm really loving this newer haircut!

I led an AA meeting this week.. The topic was Step Five. I just want to share again this powerful prayer hoping it blesses and inspires you as it does me.
Higher Power, thank You for helping me complete my housecleaning. I can now look the world in the eye. I can be alone at perfect peace and ease. My fears have fallen from me. I have begun to feel your nearness. I have begun to have a spiritual experience. I feel I am on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.

In working Step Five I experienced a spiritual moment when I realized that if I keep people at a distance....not sharing my personal inventory of defects of character with another person... I also keep God at a distance. God is nearer to me than I think and I can experience Him by loving people and allowing people to love me.

I am so grateful to sober today and continuously working the Twelve Steps in all areas of my life I am so happy to have you as a SparkFriend. Your lvoe and support is truly appreciated emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We must look inside ourselves to free ourselves. The issue of all growth is to make a change for the better and then to have an unrelenting willingness to shoulder the responsibility this entails (The Big Book,p.115).

Each day is an opportunity for personal growth. Self-esteem grows as we do in recovery. Without dreams and goals, there is nothing keep use moving forward. Out Higher Power accompanies us in our own personal journey each step of the way.

I am empowered to succeed because I realize there is power in powerlessness.

I hope you have a Sparktacular Week! emoticon emoticon emoticon
