today's team challenge....

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Today's team challenge is to write a blog about ourselves and our good points...well, it is more difficult than it seems. Why is it that we can always find something good to say about another but, seldom about ourselves??

Here goes nothing....today I gave myself a "gift" as a "goodie". It was a gift of encouragement and support. I CAN do this!! I am stubborn (in this case it is a good thing), I am strong, dependable, friendly and try to put others first. I have found that putting others first can actually be a detriment instead of a help. However, during this process of learning that I AM worthy, I have learned to say "NO".

Learning to put one's self first is a very difficult lesson but, it is an extremely valuable one. It can actually save your life. I have learned through spark that, I am worthy of a better life. ....a happier and more healthy life. Not through deprivation but, through care, love and taking time for ME!!

Sometimes, losing weight is NOT the only thing that we need to do for ourselves...

    Strong, dependable and friendly are wonderful traits! I'd also add a great sense of humor and a big heart. Taking care of yourself is a must and you're doing it! Good for you! There are lots of ways to do things for ourselves and losing weight is only a part of the whole package. Sometimes I think that all of those other things, like taking care of yourself, actually affect your weight and how you see yourself. It sounds like you are making great progress!!!

    I would go farther and say that losing weight is never the only thing we need to do for ourselves. We need to take care of ourselves in all ways.

    Good taking care of yourself!! I love the gift of encouragement and support. Good for you. You are absolutely right. This was a hard assignment. Strong, dependable, and friendly -- those are three of your excellent qualities. I'd also say great sense of humor, good social skills, sparkling eyes, willingness to help your SparkTeam, and love of the grandkids are also beautiful qualities you have. Take care. Love, Marsha
