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

Just coming by to say hi, thank you, and never give up! New week starting let's THINK about what we need to do for ourselves. My goal for this week is to ask myself each time I choose to eat, why? If I can't come up with the right reason. It will not go in my mouth. My friend said wait 10 minutes before I eat it ,you know if it is in a time not for eating.I am going to give this a shot also. I hope you have a terrific week and will try to get back by to let you know how things are going. emoticon
