Lessons Learned in Six SP Years

On 1/27/2008, I joined the Spark family and now 3 years later, I am still here and as active as ever. So what have I learned? Here is the short list:

* Before snacking, H.A.L.T. - Am I Hurting? Angry? Lonely? Tired/Thirsty?
* By sharing what I have learned, I help myself, as well as, others
* It is not selfish to take time for me
* Exercise can be fun (did I really say that?!?!?!? LOL)
* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success

* Being proactive and planning ahead is one secret to success
* Seeking help/support is not a weakness but a sign of maturity
* Sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is to say NO
* Each day needs to have some quiet time built in
* Do not dwell on mistakes, but learn from them and move on
* Setbacks are NOT a excuse to give up, but a reason to begin anew
* It is important to stay connected with my SPals and SP teams

Hi how is the week going for you? Mine started off slow in exercise area. Picked up yesterday and hoping to get some good cardio in today again. Realizing I have been working on more than I thought and I need to work on one or two at a time instead of 4 or 5 . This may help me . Thank you for the goodie. Have a good weekend.

emoticon for the smiley face goodie!
I miss you a lot too, but don't miss all the time that I used to spend on the depression team.
Thank you for keeping in touch - it's always good to hear from you!

Hugs, Leslie emoticon
