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

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

emoticon for the tea. Between eating soup and drinking water, I do feel human today. I am staying in today so I can go out with Mom tomorrow and flea market Sunday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you for adding me as your friend. I see that I already have you as a friend. I am sorry it took me so long to respond to this friend request but I have been so very busy job hunting, house hunting and recently moving. I have been running back and forth between Norfolk and Omaha and we recently moved to Omaha leaving Norfolk for (hopefully) good. I have been running back there to finish commitments I have at the motel but that should be finished this coming weekend. I have had 3 job offers since starting to look down here in June and my husband has also been offered a position down in this area. He has been looking for a position in Norfolk for 15 months with barely an interview. I had several interviews at first but then nothing. We are looking forward to a new life here away from all the stress my family was causing for us in Norfolk.

Hope you are doing well.

Thiry Kern
