Lessons Learned in Seven SP Years

On 1/27/2008, I joined the Spark family and now 7 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

"The present moment is all you can control, not what happened in the past. Although you can't turn back the clock on setbacks and disappointments, your past does not have to define you."— Edward T. Creagan, M.D.

Good Morning my sweet sister. Sorry I have been sort of AWOL from commenting on my "SP family" pages, including yours. I have been having withdrawals from refined foods for the past week and two days after being sick from eating them. Have you ever had withdrawals from sugar? I know it is just a test to see if I will continue doing the Lord's will in my life where my "diet" is concerned. I am not worried that I won't, because He is with me every step of the way and is strengthening me to do His will. Love you my dear and pray all is well with you. Thanks for your comment on my feed.
