Inner Journey Blog One

emoticon I belong to a Spark Team called Inner Journey. Its a wonderful team I belive that the inner journey is very important in a healthy lifestyle and in life's progression.

We are encouraged to do personal journalling. There are topics posted to prompt the inner thought process. Much of my journalling will be private but some I will blog here.

"Why is important to have good manners? "

My belief about this centers on respect. To respect myself it includes having respect for others. I thimk that treating others with kindness, courtesy, and open mindedness helps to bring out the best in most people. A positive experience is more likely to happen, which benefits both people.
I do not put myself above others. There is so much I can learn from interactions in my life. It does not hurt to say "please", "thank you" , etc. In a way, it means I appreciate you.
A side benefit to having manners and living a life that is respectful. is I believe, that I will feel better about myself and appreciate how special I am too. emoticon

    Hello...Spark People has become my support groups for you see I am a recovering grease-holic. Yes, it is true if you can "fry it" I can "eat it".

    Moderation is a very important key to being successful in our journey. One day at a time....Look for small victories...Look for non-scale successes.

    Spark People research has found that people who get involved in social teams tend to be more successful in their efforts.

    I want to personally invite you to join the SparkPeople's Official Healthy Habits Challenge Team. There you will find others that will support you in your journey and you will be able to help others as well.

    On our team page BOBCATGIRL76 one of our team leaders has a great article to check out. Let me know what you think.

    We are here to help. YOU can DO this! Oh by the way...have you ever tried Fried cardboard, don't have much favor but a nice crunch....lol....Live life today.

    Remember: By Endurance we conquer-Shackleton

    Welcome to SparkPeople and the world of blogging. I find it liberating to tell of my day and share my pitfalls and successes with other like minded people. You will do fine.

    Thanks for sharing this. I think we get so busy sometimes, we forget to stop and think about who we are and what matters most to us. It's easy when we're living a superficial life to do things mindlessly - including mindless eating and snaking.

    The inner journey has certainly been an important part of my healthy lifestyle.

    On of the faulty beliefs uncovered was ... losing weight and maintaining it is not possible; so, why bother.

    Finding a community of people here that have done just that helped shake that belief to its core.

    Best wishes to you!

    ... and may you find yourself growing in deeper appreciation for yourself and the special person that you are
