Reflections

Saturday, January 30, 2010

One of the most amazing things that can occur on SP is when a complete stranger impacts our lives.

I received a team email from a fellow team-member on a team I just recently joined, but haven't been very active on. I have had no interaction with her, but even so, I found her words to be incredibly powerful. I guess this is the real meaning of "being sparked." I hope she doesn't mind, but I want to share some of them here.

... I can spend my time whining about how hard it is to get up at 4:30 in the morning to exercise, or I can celebrate the ability and strength to work on this body that I live in. I can nibble away at inappropriate food choices or enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables. I can Share the Spark or find fault. There are times that just strike reality into your sights and brings you back to the real world. We are whomever we choose to be. It rains on the just and the unjust...and what we chose to do with our lives is in our court. This is our time...our chance to Spark. We're not promised tomorrow...so let's give today all we've got...

Yet another reason why emoticon
