Sunpanther's journey

*****"There's a way out of the cage where you live. Let's see how big your brave is." ******

(Sara Bareilles)

Hi everyone, and welcome to my Sparkpage. I'm Jenny from Melbourne Australia. I'm a single mum, artist, writer, reader, ...and dream about being a gardener, hiker, traveller, cyclist, swimmer, co-adventurer with my son...

I used to wait - wait for the house to be clean, wait for me to feel well, wait for that perfect time to start being a 'better' ...

Hi everyone, and welcome to my Sparkpage. I'm Jenny from Melbourne Australia. I'm a single mum, artist, writer, reader, ...and dream about being a gardener, hiker, traveller, cyclist, swimmer, co-adventurer with my son...

I used to wait - wait for the house to be clean, wait for me to feel well, wait for that perfect time to start being a 'better' me. It doesn't work that way - the days, the years go by and I end up with no change. Now I am not waiting. Because this is life now and I want to live fully now.

I have some constants in my life though that together make my Spark journey vibrant and successful:

I don't confusion motivation, for 'feeling motivated'. Your motivation is your health, your wedding, your family - 'feeling motivated' is a little monster that comes and goes whenever it feels like it. You learn to keep going whether you FEEL motivated or not!


CONSISTENCY AND ROUTINE. I couldn't reach ANY goals without them.
SPARKPEOPLE TOOLS. Use whatever you can that suits your lifestyle.
SPARKPEOPLE COMMUNITY. I've had to learn how to be thoroughly involved without spreading myself too thin. ALWAYS support others, including strangers - some of these strangers have become very close friends and so precious to me. Be inspired by those whose successful stories have touched you.

********

So Sparkfriends, may 2014 bring you much peace, laughter, adventure, and of course success on your journey toward greater wellbeing.

***************************

A BLESSING FOR THE SENSES

May your body be blessed.
May you realise that your body is a faithful and beautiful friend of your soul.
And may you be peaceful and joyful and recognise that your senses are sacred thresholds.
May you realise that holiness is mindful gazing, feeling, hearing, and touching.
May your senses gather you and bring you home.
May your senses always enable you to celebrate the universe and the mystery and possibilities in your presence here.
May the Eros of the Earth bless you.

John O'Donohue - Anam Cara

We can do this. Together.
